Funeral for Opelika infant scheduled this afternoon

A baby that was found dead in a ditch in Opelika earlier this month will be laid to rest this afternoon.

Lee County coroner Bill Harris said he has organized a grave side service at Garden Hill cemetery at 3 p.m. CST for the infant, who was found in a ditch behind the Tree Top Apartment Complex on Birmingham Highway on Feb. 4.

Harris said several attempts had been made to contact the supposed parents of the child, but they had not been successful.

The case remains under investigation.
