Katrina Vigil, seen here after being arrested last week for unrelated warrants out of Bernalillo County, is being investigated after a baby she gave birth to Sept. 24 was stashed in a closet for three days and has since died.

Los Alamos police and the First Judicial District Attorney’s office continue the investigation into 25-year-old Katrina Vigil after her second secret birth has resulted in the death Monday night of her son, Grey Vigil.

UPDATE: (Click here for story running in Wednesday’s New Mexican)

Here’s last week’s story on the case, including all the details about her having another secret birth in2003: Secret birth No. 2 for Los Alamos woman.

The baby was found Monday in a closed in the woman’s Los Alamos home by Katrina’s mother after being born on Friday and stashed in the closet. The baby was take to the hospital last Tuesday and almost immediately airlifted to UNM Hospital in Albuquerque.

Vigil has not been charged.

It is the second time in seven years she had a secret birth, first doing so in 2003 in her Eastern New Mexico University dorm room and the next day telling police she found the baby in a park. That bay survived.

I’ll update more on this case when I can.

    I am appalled at what this woman has done. She should be put away since she can not stop from getting pregnant and killing innocent children that are not asking to be born. I am so irate at this moment that I will stop here right now.
