Authorities believe the two unidentified babies below may have the same biological mother. Although, they believed they had separate fathers. Both were discovered deceased in Minnesota less than three years apart.
Forensic artists from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children used photographs of the bodies and the infants’ skull measurements to create composite drawings of what the babies might have looked like at the time of their deaths.
The first victim was discovered on December 7, 2003 in Old Frontenac, Goodhue County, Minnesota
Estimated Date of Death: No more than two weeks, no less than two days.
Estimated age: Newborn (less than 48 hours old)
Hair: Curly, black hair.

Reconstruction of Victim by NCMEC – NOTE: Outfits shown in the age-progressed photos are not the actual outfits worn during discovery.)
The infant is a girl and she was located November 4, 1999 on the bank of the Mississippi River, in the small boat harbor in Red Wing, MN, a little over three years before the discovery of the boy. She was given the name Jamie.
Time of death: At-least 48 hours prior to discovery but no longer than two weeks.
Authorities think the composites could help piece together a frustrating puzzle. Over the years they have had over a 100 leads, yet the investigations remain unsolved.
Investigators believed that the infants were born alive. Autopsies were never able to ascertain causes of death. Officials believe that mother of the children may have hidden the pregnancies and is probably familiar with the area or possibly still living in the local areas.
After the discovery of both babies, a local couple paid to have them buried next to their own stillborn daughter, under headstones that read “God’s Little Angel.“
