But the police report told a different story. According to the report, the baby had been missing for less than an hour. “According to the father, he was at the story buying baby formula,” Officer Tate said. Mr. Augustine returned to the St. Paul residence around 11 PM. At officers’ request, Mr. Augustine left the scene after giving a statement and turning the child over to the mother. “This isn’t our first time responding to this kind of call at this residence. My guess is it won’t be our last,” said Tate, adding, “What’s unfortunate is there is an infant involved.”
This actually happened in 2001. And it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
