SUBURBAN WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-- Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw has announced a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of those responsible for the death of a baby found floating off of the Boynton Beach Inlet.
Bradshaw said the case of ‘Baby June has struck a nerve with him. “It is horrific, it is horrendous,” said the sheriff. “I can’t believe there are people out there who have information and haven’t come forward.”
Investigators think the baby could have floated to Palm Beach County from Broward.
“Come on folks, you know about this, it is bad to throw a baby in the ocean, it is horrific, so tell us what you know,” the sheriff said.
"You know out there who you are. You know you have this information. And I expect you to come forward and if it takes $10,000 to solve it, so be it," the sheriff added.
Detectives believe the baby was born sometime between May 25 and May 28 and could have been born with a midwife, private birthing center or a hospital.
The newborn was either mixed race, black or Hispanic.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is asking Broward residents who might have information to call Call Detective C. Hamilton 561.688.4155 or email Hamiltonc@pbso.org.
