Abandoned Infant Dubbed Angelica-Leslie

By KJ Mullins     Feb 2, 2008 in Crime
A baby girl who was abandoned in the parking garage at a shopping mall at Leslie Street and Finch Avenue in Toronto on Wednesday has been dubbed "Angelica-Leslie" by the Children's Aid Society.
CAS hope that the infant's parents come forward but they will be seeking guardianship for one month on Monday. David Rivard, executive director for the Toronto branch says that there are clear signs that the little girl had been abused.
Police
investigating the case have reason to believe the child is from the United States.
"We're exploring this possibility and seeing where it takes us: if it leads to nothing, if it has to expand ... we don't know at this point. We're trying everything that we can. And until we get some information that can assist us, we're going to continue appealing to the public for their assistance," Const. Wendy Drummond told CBC News.
The police have images from the parking garage where tiny Angelica-Leslie was abandoned. The images show that someone driving a recent model green four door sedan drove to the second story of the garage at about 10:30 a.m. The car was the only one in the area. Driving straight to the stairwell door the driver stopped and got out of the vehicle to check the stairwell. The driver then returned to the car and took the infant from the car to the stairwell. They returned to the car alone and left. The car is believed to be a Ford Escort.
Angelica-Leslie was found in the stairwell at 12:30 p.m. She was face down on the freezing concrete landing.
The baby is black with a light complexion. She was wearing a pink cotton sleeper, blue socks and a green hat when she was found.
She is now in foster care.
Police are worried about the mental health of her parents and if there are any other siblings she may have who could be in danger.
