The incident reportedly occurred on April 2. A woman is seen entering the gas station convenience store in the footage. No one went into the bathroom after that, according to witnesses. It happened prior to the discovery of the baby who died in the bathroom after the suspect took off according to the Daily Mail. Police would like a word with the woman in the video.

The footage is from a Shell Station on South Post Oak Road showing a woman entering in the early hours of the morning on that Sunday. She was thought to only be in the bathroom for about 15 minutes before she left, calmly driving away.

A customer found the deceased infant in a bathroom toilet at approximately 4:25 am, hours after the woman was seen in the footage. They immediately called Houston Fire Department paramedics who tried to save the baby girl but it was too late. She died hours before they even got there.

The suspect has not been found but is believed to be the woman in the footage from the gas station. She was driving a white Cadillac.

The police have identified the suspect as a Hispanic woman. The edited footage shows her getting out of her car at a gas pump before going into the station. Her face is seen very clearly in the video.

Police stated that she is a “person of interest, believed to be the infant’s mother.” But they can’t say with certainty that she is the one who gave birth to the child, allegedly leaving the infant for dead in the restroom.

“We really don’t know what the circumstances are or who she is in relation to the infant,” a spokesperson told Law&Crime in an interview.

Because it was early on Sunday, there were very few people around that would have used the restroom.

“No one else went inside that bathroom, and [the newborn] was not there when she walked in before,” Houston Detective Caleb Bowling noted.

Numerous witness statements and footage publicly support that conclusion, according to the homicide detective.

Houston police have no idea if the child was stillborn or died after birth. They do know that the child was dead for some time before it was found in the bathroom. The cause of death has yet to be determined. The county’s institute of forensic science is still in the midst of an inquiry after four months.

The suspect has not been charged as of Tuesday and there are evidently no charges pending currently.

“It’s difficult and tragic, regardless of the case and how it goes out, it’s tragic it’s played out the way that it has,” Bowling said on Monday.

“There are definitely other options available other than a gas station restroom, I would hope. If you’re having any sort of medical emergency, I would hope you would go to any 24/7 clinic or hospital,” he added.

Bowling remarked that the police have exhausted “all other investigative techniques” and are now trying to appeal to the suspect to turn herself in.

“It appears that she gave birth in the restroom,” Bowling stated during a press conference. “I’d like to let her know that we just want to talk to her, we just want to find out some more information, want to be able to put in some answers to the situation.”
