Five Years Later, Baby Michael Case Remains Mystery

Posted Updated

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — It has been nearly five years since the discovery of Baby Michael.

Back in March 1999, a Cumberland County resident found the newborn's body in a ditch beside a road.

Officers could not identify the infant, so they named him Michael after the patron saint of law enforcement.

The community came together to give him a burial. Investigators never found his mother.
