About this Case:

On May 31, 1971, Colorado Springs Police Officers were dispatched to the 4100 block of East Columbia St. on the report of a possible body found in the front yard. Upon their arrival, officers spoke to the home owner who related that his pet dog had carried the remains of what appeared to be a small body to the front yard of the home. The decomposed body appeared to be that of a baby. An autopsy determined the child may have been still born but it was not possible to determine the gender, or how long the baby had been abandoned. As of this date, the baby has not been identified. Although a thorough search of the area was made it was not possible to determine the original location of this crime. ***The Colorado Springs Police department asks anyone who may have information or witnessed any unusual activity on May 31, 1971, in the area of the 4100 block of E. Columbia St., to please contact them.
