Donations enable burial for baby found in freezer

Jul 3, 2012, 11:47 AM

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – A newborn found dead in an apartment freezer in northwest Ohio is being honored at a public burial service made possible by donations.

The Blade in Toledo (

A funeral home, a flower shop and the memorial park donated services for the Tuesday burial.

A coroner has said the boy was born alive and was strangled and dunked in water. A landlord found the body in April while cleaning out a rental property in Toledo.

The child’s parents have been charged in his death.

The newspaper says his maternal grandmother named the boy Alex.
