Jessica Price, age 29, was arrested Wednesday and was charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse after a police said she gave birth at the store a week ago.

“The baby was discovered when they exchanged the trash bag from one to another. He discovered the baby in the bag,” LT. Todd Kessinger with LMPD homicide unit said.

Police said she left work for two hours after giving birth then came back only to find police everywhere. Price tried to cover up everything, detectives said, by placing the body and other evidence in the garbage.

The exact cause of the baby’s death has yet to be determined.

“We still have tests that are pending,” Kessinger said.

Price is being held without bond at Metro Corrections.

She is scheduled to be back in court August 26.

    I am personally arranging for memorial services for this helpless baby. I have setup a site for donations. I am working with the funeral home and cemetary once “Baby Price” has been release so she can be laid to rest and not treated as a piece of trash: http://www.gofundme.com/3yjhzk
