When the couple were stopped by Mexican custom agents, the woman fled. The man was detained with the duffle bag. An x-ray of the bag revealed the body of a child. A short time later the female was taken into custody by Mexican authorities and turned over to U.S. authorities.
Homicide detectives believe the child’s death may have occurred in Whittier, therefore the San Diego police are working closely with detectives of the Whittier Police Department.
