A newborn baby was found dead on January 24, 1994 inside a trash can at a car wash business in Jeanerette, Louisiana. They also found a girdle and bloody newspapers near the girl's lifeless body. The medical examiner determined that the baby had been born alive but had died of hypothermia after being abandoned during a cold night. More than 200 people from her small town attended the funeral of the unknown girl, who was buried next to a Raggedy Ann rag doll.

The mystery about the girl's death lasted for more than two decades, but this week Sonia Charles, 50, was arrested. Police allege that Charles is the baby's mother and faces murder charges. The woman is in jail awaiting her trial. Sheriff Wendell Raborn told PEOPLE that the case was solved because the baby's DNA is compatible with that of the mother.

Raborn says he hopes one day the girl - who has so far been unidentified - can have her name engraved on her grave. "Until she tells us exactly what the motive was, we can only guess," added the sheriff of the crime. "Only she knows the real reason why she did it." The case remains under investigation.
