Pedestrian finds infant's body in Millington ditch

Posted: Updated:

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (AP) - Millington police say they don't know whether a dead baby found in a ditch on Sunday is the missing 7-week-old Aniston Walker, but they have called in Memphis police just in case.

Millington Police Chief Rita Stanback told WMC-TV (http://bit.ly/1dXXUEr) the baby seems to be less than a year old. It was wearing a onesie, and the body seems to have been there for some time.

Stanback said a motorcyclist who pulled over to the side of the road saw the body in a ditch on Singleton Parkway around noon.

Andrea Walker told police Aniston disappeared on Jan. 9 after she left her home with a 3-year-old as she dropped her 5-year-old son off at school.

Walker was arrested on child neglect charges but has since been released from jail.
