Baby John DOE-Provo
On February 15th, 1947, three boys playing in the mill race near the Provo Gold Course found the body of a newborn baby boy in a clump of weeds. The boys called the police and an inquest was held into the baby’s manner of death. The baby boy was described as white/Caucasian and well developed. He was very badly decomposed so the exact cause of death could not be determined. However, it was noted that there were marks of violence on the body. The physician estimated that the baby had been in the water for about one to two weeks. The inquest determined that the baby died by “felonious means”. The police admitted that they had no clues and no leads unless someone came forward, but unfortunately the baby remained unidentified.
