Doctors Reveal
Baby Died
Before Mailing

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) An autopsy yesterday disclosed that an infant boy was dead before his body was mailed to a Salt Lake City address.

Dr. Shelley Swift said the 10 pound, red-haired baby died of asphyxia, but offered no explanation how that might have occurred.

There had been speculation the newborn baby had been mailed alive, but Dr. Swift ruled out that possibility.

The little body was found Saturday in a package mailed last Tuesday in Dallas, Tex. The package bore the return name and address of Mary Sue Goss, 3522 Wycliff, Dallas.

Dallas police cleared the woman at that address, a widow of about 55.


The package was addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Henry Goss, RR3 Box 18-A, Salt Lake City. There is no such address. It was delivered to Mr. and Mrs. Henry L. Goss, 2212 east 3020 south, the only Henry Goss family in the area.

The Gosses said they had never lived in Dallas, or known anyone there.

Dr. Swift said a bruise on the baby's back was not significant to its death. He said the bruise could have occurred during a normal delivery.
