Arrest Made After Newborn Found Dead At Texas Recycling Center

SAN ANTONIO (January 15, 2014) Nidia Yolibeth Alvarado, 25, was jailed Wednesday, charged with capital murder in the death of a newborn whose body was found last month at a recycling center in San Antonio.

Police arrested Alvarado Tuesday night on a capital murder warrant.

A medical examiner ruled that the infant was strangled.

Waste Management spokeswoman Lisa Doughty says an employee working at the beginning of the sorting line found the body just before 1 p.m. on Monday Dec. 23.

The facility immediately stopped operations at that time and police were called, she said.

Investigators think the body, which was inside a blue duffel bag, was dumped in the trash sometime over the weekend before the newborn was found.

Alvarado was arrested at a San Antonio apartment.
