On Thursday, police said detectives determined the infant was stillborn and that the case has been referred to prosecutors to determine whether abuse of a corpse charges should be filed against the 29-year-old mother.

The newborn’s body was found by restaurant employees who were cleaning the bathroom about 30 minutes after the mother left.
