'Baby Noah' To Be Buried On Friday

ROCKFORD, Ill. (CBS) -- Baby Noah - the newborn whose body was found last week at a Rockford area recycling center - will be buried tomorrow.

The burial of Baby Noah will be at 9 a.m. at Calvary Cemetery in Winnebago.

"It will be a graveside service. It will be held in Baby Land," the area of the cemetery where other babies are buried, according to Winnebago County Coroner Sue Fiduccia.

Fiduccia said everything is being donated - the casket, gravemarker, clothing, a quilt, and stuffed animals.

"There's just various things that will go into the casket with him, so that he has things of his own," she said.

Fiduccia said authorities have not been able to find the family of Baby Noah.

His body was found on a conveyor belt in the Total Waste Recycling center in the town of Roscoe last week.

An autopsy determined Noah was born full-term, had no abnormalities or congenital defects, and was likely born alive.
