CHEYENNE (AP) — Investigators in southeastern Wyoming have reopened the case of a dead newborn found in a culvert more than 30 years ago.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports the unidentified boy was found near Happy Jack Road and McKinney Drive on the western edge of Cheyenne in February 1988.

The Laramie County Sheriff’s Office says it has teamed up with a private DNA laboratory, Othram, to seek genetic leads in the case.

Sheriff's officials say money raised through a crowdfunding effort will cover testing and research costs.
