Cold Case: Gail Eastwood-Ritchey killed her newborn son *Geauga’s Child*; Sentenced to life in prison

This case has really hit me. Apparently this is not the only time Gail Eastwood-Ritchey has done this. I do not have info on the other. But I cannot wrap my head around someone giving birth and then throwing that child away. She says the baby was not breathing, but the autopsy said otherwise. The wonderful people in Geauga County really stepped up and adopted this child that was thrown away. Yes, I know it was before Safe Haven laws, however, I am sure you could have dropped off that baby at a hospital.
