(WLNS) – A final farewell took place Wednesday for a baby who never stood a chance.
Community members in Macomb County gathered for the funeral of the baby boy found dead at a Detroit-area recycling plant.
Dozens of people gathered at the resurrection cemetery in Clinton Twp. for the baby that’s come to be known as Henry.
Police say 24-year-old Angela Alexie gave birth to the baby last December in an East Pointe garage where she left the child without ever caring for him.
Officials say he may have survived a couple days before he died.
His body was found at a Roseville recycling plant a few weeks later.
Alexie now faces murder charges for the baby’s death.
