Se ha resuelto un caso frío de restos de bebés abandonados que data de hace décadas utilizando pruebas de ADN. Ahora una pareja de Carolina del Norte está acusada de un delito grave

Tres décadas después de que se encontraran restos de bebés en un pueblo costero de Carolina del Norte, la policía dice que han arrestado y acusado a una pareja basándose en nuevas pruebas de ADN.

Scott Gordon Poole, 54, y su esposa Robin Lynn Byrum, 51, were arrested last week and charged with concealing the birth of a child, a Class I felony, the Nags Head Police Department said in a comunicado de prensa.
The case dates back to April 4, 1991, when police officers found the infant remains in the trash at a location in Nags Head. En el momento, authorities were not able to identify the baby’s gender because decomposition had already begun, la policía dijo.
      Investigators connected the couple to the infant after they sent one of its rib bones to a Texas lab for forensic analysis in 2019 and human DNA was recovered. That evidence was then used to create genealogical profile, leading investigators to Poole and Byrum.
        The tragedy of this child’s death and the manner in which his body was disposed of is compounded by the fact that, hasta ahora, no one has been found responsible for this incredibly heartbreaking act,” Nags Head Police Chief Phil Webster said.
          “Pero, through the hard work of Nags Head Police investigators and our law enforcement partners in the case, those who did this will be held accountable for a death that has remained unsolved for three decades.
            The couple is being held at the Dare County Detention Center in Manteo, Carolina del Norte, la policía dijo. Their bond was set at $ 250,000 cada.
            As of Tuesday evening, it was unclear whether Poole or Byrum had obtained legal representation.
