Infant boy found in freezer to be buried in Ohio



Published: Tue, July 3, 2012 @ 12:35 p.m.

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A newborn found dead in an apartment freezer in northwest Ohio is being honored at a public burial service made possible by donations.

The Blade newspaper in Toledo reports a Delta man heard about the homicide and offered a burial plot that his family had in a memorial park. Thomas Griesinger says he thought the newborn deserved a burial “in a dignified place.”

A funeral home, a flower shop and the memorial park donated services for today's burial.

A coroner has said the boy was born alive and was strangled and dunked in water. A landlord found the body in April while cleaning out a rental property in Toledo.

The child’s parents have been charged in his death.

The newspaper says his maternal grandmother named the boy Alex.
