One of the most horrific things possible has happened at the Excalibur (3850 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109). A new born infant was found dead in a restroom trash can by a hotel employee Sunday night. That's right, on Mother's Day. The umbilical cord was still attached and the body was in a pillow case wrapped up in one of the hotel's gift bags, tossed away like so much trash. What the hell is wrong with people?! There are places in Las Vegas where mothers can drop off their babies, no questions asked. Three were within just a few miles of the Excalibur. They would have found a loving home for the child at no cost to the mother.
Metro is investigating and I'm sure the local news will have more information later today. If you have any information regarding the identity of the parties involved, call crime stoppers at 385-5555. Metro is waiting for an autopsy to see whether the baby boy was alive before being placed in the trash.
