21 Years After Newborn Was Tossed From A Car, Authorities Use DNA To Track Down & Charge His Mother With Murder

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — Authorities in North Carolina say they’ve solved a 20-year-old cold case by tracking down a woman accused of killing her newborn son and dumping his body in 1999.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that it charged 54-year-old Deborah Riddle O’Conner with first-degree murder Thursday.

Investigators alleged she gave birth to the baby just one day before he was placed in a trash bag and tossed from a car south of Fayetteville.

DNA was recently sent to a lab for testing, and detectives used the results to locate O’Conner.

The sheriff said she admitted to being the boy’s mother.

She was set to appear in court Friday.
