MERIDEN, Conn. (WTIC) -- The Meriden Police Department announced Tuesday they have solved a cold case that they've investigated for three decades.
It was advanced DNA technology that brought this case to its conclusion.
This case involves a newborn child, that was found frozen to death. In fact, the baby's body was so cold, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner had to wait a day before conducting a postmortem exam.
“We never really, after 32 years, thought that this would come to the conclusion that it has,” said Robert Kosienski, retired Meriden Police Chief.
For 32 years, every January, the Meriden Police Department has conducted a graveside remembrance for the abandoned newborn boy discovered frozen to death January 2, 1988.
