A Burial Service will be held this Saturday, Dec.7th at 11 am in the Garden of Angels at Desert Lawn Cemetery in Calimesa, California.

Abbey was a newborn baby who was found on a conveyor belt at a recycling facility in Victorville recently. Named “Abbey” after the street where her blanket wrapped body was found. The cause and manner of death is still pending. Cases involving infants can take upwards of six months to resolve. Other sources report, Abbey will join 100 other children at the cemetery each abandoned after birth. Garden of Angels is a nonprofit that focuses on preventing newborn abandonment. Debi Faris-Lujan, the founder and director said her organization will take care of the burial and memorial service.

The grim discovery of an infant was reported to authorities by an employee of Victor Valley Material Recovery Facility (MRF).

An employee located the baby on a conveyor belt wrapped in a white sheet early this morning, according to early reports. Several local news stations are also on scene covering the tragic incident.

The Victor Valley Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) serves as the processing center for recyclables from Apple Valley and Victorville’s curbside and commercial/business recycling programs.

The MRF is located on 17000 Abbey Lane, just off of Stoddard Wells Road—on the way to the County’s Victorville Landfill.
