— Preliminary autopsy results show a baby found in a dumpster at Fort Bragg may have been born dead.

A soldier running along Sapper Road found the baby wrapped in a bag inside a dumpster. Investigators still hope to receive tips that will help them locate the baby girl's parents.

LtC. Rick Spearman, a spokesman for the 18th Airborne Corps at Fort Bragg says it is difficult to be sure with newborns.

Investigators are looking through the contents of the dumpster for clues. No word when we can expect the completed autopsy results.
