FBI Investigating Death Of Infant

Last updated on Monday, November 7, 2011

(UNDATED) - The FBI’s investigation into the death of a newborn found aboard a Carnival cruise ship has been moved from Tampa to Indiana

An FBI spokesman says that the case has been moved to the northwest part of Indiana where the 20-year-old mother lives.

Supervisory Special Agent Robert Ramsey says the law allows for the move since the baby was born in international waters.

An employee of the Carnival Dream ship found the dead newborn in a guest cabin on Oct. 12. The ship had been docked in St. Maarten at the time. It later returned to Port Canaveral in central Florida for the investigation. The cause and manner of death have not yet been determined. The mother has not been identified.
