CORONA (CBSLA) — Help is needed Tuesday to find the owner of a T-shirt that had been wrapped around a dead and abandoned infant in Corona.

Police were called to the area of Cajalco Road and Interstate 15 on July 27 on the report of an abandoned baby that had been found dead.

The child had been wrapped in a T-shirt, and because of the shirt’s distinctive pattern –  black short sleeves, a black pocket, and a palm tree pattern alternating with white stripes – detectives decided to release a photo of it.
