A baby boy found dead in a suspected shoplifter’s bag at Victoria’s Secret was born alive, weighing 81/2 pounds — and now cops are trying to figure out if he was murdered.
Tiona Rodriguez, already the mother of a 2-year-old son, initially told police she was six months pregnant and suffered a miscarriage on Wednesday, sources said.
But her lies were exposed after an autopsy on Friday determined the baby was nearly full-term at eight months. Officials said the autopsy was inconclusive about the cause of death. Results could take about two weeks.
