    Baby's remains located in landfill, mother charged with murder

    This has been playing out in the area for a while now. Glad the kiddo will find some justice.

    Police: We Tried To Help Small Soul Get To Heaven - Denver News Story - KMGH Denver

    COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- Commerce City police say the 53 day search for an infant’s remains at the Denver Arapahoe Disposal Site was one of the most grueling tasks they’ve ever dealt with.

    Interim Police Chief Chuck Saunier told 7NEWS that his department responded to a report of a missing child on March 29.

    He said that within 24 hours, investigators had learned enough about the case to start planning for a search at the huge landfill.

    Sgt. Joe Dougherty led the search. He said police and volunteers combed through 2 ½ acres of the landfill digging down 20 feet deep.

    “It’s like the size of Dick’s Sporting Goods Stadium,” Dougherty said. “Two stories. That’s how much rubbish they went through.”

    Dougherty said the conditions were grueling.

    “It got hot out there,” he said. “It was windy. When it rained, we were working in mud.”

    Dougherty said front end loaders scooped up the rubbish and loaded it onto a truck. The truck hauled it to the sorting lines, where volunteers raked through it looking for the remains.

    “If you can imagine going out to your front yard and raking through heavy leaves and rocks for 10 to 12 hours,” Dougherty said. “That’s what it was like.”

    “All those dedicated citizens were basically working through hell so one small soul could go to heaven,” he said.

    That's incredible work, and absolutely ASTOUNDING that the remains were even found.

    Kudos to everyone who had a hand in it, that's incredible.
