Young Couple Apprehended after Tossing Newborn Out from Window in Pennsylvania; Infant Discovered Dead in Pool of Blood by Authorities

A tragic incident unfolded in Pennsylvania as authorities apprehended a 19-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman on charges of causing the untimely demise of their newborn baby. Shockingly, the little boy was left to suffer and tragically bled to death within a day of his birth.

The heart-wrenching act was further compounded by the disposal of the infant’s body from the second-story window of their residence.

Joshua Coleman Wooters and Emily Jane Dickinson were apprehended this week and face charges including criminal homicide, conspiracy, concealing the death of an infant, and abuse of a corpse in connection with the tragic passing of a young boy in March 2024, according to court records.

Wooters is facing an additional misdemeanor charge for obstructing a law enforcement function.

A news release from the Pennsylvania State Police states that troopers received a report of a deceased male baby found in the street near the intersection of Lincoln Way and North 2nd Street in McConnellsburg Borough, Pennsylvania. The incident occurred at approximately 8:45 a.m. on March 11, and the location is about 160 miles west of Philadelphia.

Upon reaching the scene, emergency personnel found the newborn victim approximately 20 feet north of the intersection. Various items, including a bloodstained mattress, a placenta, and several disposable items, were discovered in a trash bag near the body of the young boy, who was declared deceased at the scene.

Additional details regarding the investigation that led to the arrests of Wooters and Dickinson were revealed in court documents.

According to the report, the Fulton County Coroner’s Office has determined that the newborn victim was less than 24 hours old and had a gestational age of around 36 or 37 weeks. The baby’s cause of death, as determined by a subsequent autopsy, was exsanguination from the umbilical stump, indicating a significant loss of blood.

Police discovered that Wooters and Dickinson reside in an apartment with a second-story window that provides a view of the area where the child was discovered. Troopers on April 1 once again interviewed Wooters, who continued to deny any knowledge of the infant. He adamantly claimed to be a virgin, stating that he had never engaged in any intimate activities, as reported by the Daily Voice.

Authorities conducted a search warrant at the couple’s apartment on April 3, discovering potential evidence of blood in both the bedroom and bathroom. Additionally, it was observed that the apartment had several windows that provided a view of the area where the newborn was found.

According to investigators, Wooters stated that Dickinson handled the baby in a manner similar to how one would handle dog waste and used a kitchen knife to cut the umbilical cord without properly securing it afterward, as reported by the Law&Crime.

According to reports, Dickinson allegedly proceeded to approach the bathroom window and callously dropped the child from the second story onto the concrete below.

According to Wooters, upon witnessing the incident of the baby being thrown from the window, he expressed his shock and disbelief towards Dickinson. He then collected the mattress and other belongings, placing them in a trash bag and discarding them through the window. They failed to contact emergency services.

Reports indicate that DNA tests have confirmed the newborn victim to be the child of Wooters and Dickinson.

Upon examining Dickinson’s phone, it was discovered that she had conducted online searches regarding pregnancy-related matters, including “abortion law” and “home birth how long does the bleeding last.”

The couple is currently being detained in the Bedford County Jail. Both individuals were denied bond due to the severity of their charges, which carry potential life sentences.
