KENOSHA, Wis. (WITI) -- A man and woman were taken into custody in Kenosha, awaiting charges for abandoning the body of a 2-month-old baby girl in a field near 50th Street and 52nd Avenue.
Although the investigation is ongoing, criminal charges against two persons will be referred to the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office for Hiding a Corpse and Harboring or Aiding Felons. Kenosha police identified the suspects as 36-year-old Hezile Frison and 21-year-old Monica Adams -- both residents of Kenosha.
"One day they left with the baby. Came back with no baby," said the man who provided shelter for Frison and Adams.
Police identified the child in a news release as 2-month-old Jalisa Adams-Frison, born in May 2019.
"We were trying to be nice and give somebody a place of shelter who was homeless," the man said.
A man who provided shelter for Frison and Adams -- who asked to not be identified -- last saw the baby in late July.
"To our knowledge, the baby was with other family members so we didn't question it. But as time went on, then we began to grow suspicious," he said.
The details weren't adding up.
"One day we said, you guys gotta tell us what's going on with this baby. Who's got this baby? Call the family member that you say have the baby so we can know that this baby is safe. We told them to get in the car so they could take us to where this baby was, but then they were beating around the bush," said the man who provided shelter for Frison and Adams.
