King Linked to Duffel Bag Containing Infant Body
RANDOLPH COUNTY - The probable cause statement from the Missouri State Highway Patrol links Cassidy King, 25, of Moberly, to the duffel bag found containing an infant's body in a pond outside Higbee.
An examination of the duffel bag uncovered a towel with the name "Cassidy King" on it.
The statement says responding officers found the remains of "a deceased newborn male infant" Sunday, May 8, in a body of water on the property located at 1630 Route H in Randolph County. Troopers were summoned after a passer by, Jamie Miles, pulled the duffel bag from the pond.
Miles is King's sister.
Investigators interviewed an associate of King's who says King confided in him that she "had given birth to a child several weeks ago at her residence in Moberly."
Results of autopsy and DNA test, performed Monday, are still unknown.
