'Let us bring justice.' NYPD holds vigil to mark 2 years since twin infants found dead in Bronx alleyway
NYPD officers joined the community for a prayer vigil to mark two years since twin infants were found dead in a Bronx alleyway.
The officers and officials who were on the scene the day the babies were found named the boys Zeke and Zane.
Residents from the building near where the babies were found were in attendance. They say they are heartbroken that the case has gone cold.
Police say the babies, who were just days old, were found early in the afternoon by the superintendent of the building. They were wrapped in pads used to house train dogs, with dirt and garbage on top of them. One of the umbilical cords was still attached.
Zeke and Zayne were both put to rest almost a year after they were found.
Police say they are still awaiting scientific answers to point them in the direction of the parents but so far have had no luck.
“What we want is someone who saw something, heard something, suspected something. Maybe in the two years you just felt like it was nothing. Let us find out if it's nothing, pick up the phone call 1800-577-TIPS and let us bring justice to the babies,” says Lt. Sean O'Toole. “They're resting in peace but let's bring justice, let's find out why they ended up back here and why their skulls were fractured and why their bodies were beaten and dumped in the backyard."
The NYPD is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for any answers.
