Newborn Girl’s Death Prompts City To Lower Flag

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland’s city flag will be lowered Wednesday for the newborn girl found dead at a recycling center last week.

The city flag will be lowered at City Hall, the Portland Building, the World Trade Center, Pioneer Courthouse Square and Jeld-Wen Field.

City Council approved a resolution in 2009 to lower the flag in honor of children who die from abuse, neglect, or homicidal violence. This will be the tenth time the flag has been lowered.

Police are still investigating the baby’s death.
