JUNEAU, Wis. — Tuesday marks five years since the body of a newborn girl was found in a garbage bag in the woods south of the village of Theresa.

Dodge County authorities say they've exhausted many leads in the "Baby Theresa" case, and they still haven't identified the child's mother.

An autopsy found Baby Theresa was a full-term infant, weighing 8 pounds and measuring 20.5 inches in length. The girl had suffered no trauma, and no drugs were found in her system.

Investigators have ruled out the possibility that residents close to where the baby was found were related to her.

Authorities still hope the mother eventually will come forward and give the community closure.
