Detectives investigating this case have learned that 23-year-old Yu Hua Huang of Southeast Portland gave birth to an infant at her residence. Based on information from Ms. Huang and the Medical Examiner's Office, it appears that the baby was stillborn. Ms. Huang did not know what to do so she took the infant to Oregon Health Sciences University.

At this point in the investigation, Ms. Huang has been cooperative and detectives do not anticipate any charges being filed.


On Tuesday November 9, 2010 at approximately 3:00 p.m., Portland Police officers responded to the emergency room at Oregon Health Sciences University on the report of an adult female who walked into the hospital with a deceased infant. Officers arrived and, after speaking with hospital staff and the adult female, called for detectives from the Homicide Division and the Child Abuse Team to respond.

At this point, Child Abuse Team detectives are conducting an investigation into the circumstances of the child's death. The Multnomah County District Attorneys Office and the Oregon State Medical Examiner are also actively involved with this case.

No additional information will be released at this time as this is an ongoing investigation.
