Dead newborn called Baby Kimball Doe

SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) - As King County sheriff's detectives try to identify a newborn found dead near Snoqualmie they've started calling it Baby Kimball Doe.

Sgt. Cindi West says the name comes from the Kimball bridge near where the body was found Feb. 12 about 10 feet off a road. The baby was full term and the umbilical cord still attached.

The sheriff's office has released photos of two towels found with the body, hoping for tips from the public that would lead to identification. One is a faded Target brand black bath towel with a pattern of squares on one side and rectangles on the other. The other is a Chick Pea brand burping towel.
