The baby was found in a dumpster behind a gym. Days later, authorities released images of four people who may have information on how the baby ended up in the dumpster. 

After the images were released, Brusela D’Enstachio-Lugo, 34, came forward and admitted to giving birth to the child. She said the child was born outside of her home May 10. 

She said she didn’t know she was pregnant. She didn’t go to the hospital because she was in the country illegally and didn’t have money to pay for medical expenses, the news outlet said. 

She also allegedly admitted to putting the infant’s remains in the dumpster.
