Annapolis police said the body of a 2-year-old was recovered Thursday night from more than 95 tons of refuse.
Police said Chelsea Booth admitted she killed her toddler daughter, Kassidey, and put her body in a dumpster.
According to the Annapolis Police Department, detectives tracked the contents of the dumpster to a refuse transition station in Maryland where the contents were loaded onto rail cars for transport to a landfill out of state.
The Annapolis Fire Department assisted officers with a search of the rail cars and located the toddler’s body amongst refuse. Help was also provided by Waste Management’s Jessup Facility and the district manager, Chris Isakov, and the Department of Public Works.
Police said Chelsea Booth was charged with first- and second-degree murder and first-degree child abuse resulting in death. Officers are still investigating and anyone with information is asked to call Detective Pyles at 410-268-9000.
