SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities have arrested a California woman in the death of her newborn baby boy 32 years ago.
They say the case was solved thanks to genetic genealogy.
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office says 52-year-old Lesa Lopez admitted to investigators she was the mother of the baby and implicated herself in the crime.
It wasn’t immediately known if she has an attorney who can speak on her behalf.
Two children playing found the baby’s body on May 15, 1988, inside a paper bag left among trees and bushes on the bank of a creek in Castro Valley.
