A mother whose four newborns were found dead in a freezer has escaped any criminal prosecution.

The bodies of two girls and two boys were discovered in shoe boxes wrapped in tinfoil in a South Boston apartment freezer in November 2022.

After more than two years, investigators were not able to determine if the babies were born alive. Their father is deceased and their now 69-year-old mom has cognitive issues that would probably render her unable to stand trial.

As a result, a Massachusetts prosecutor has announced he will not seek charges against anyone.

‘This investigation, which is one of the most complex, unusual and perplexing that this office has ever encountered, is now complete,’ stated Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden on Tuesday.

‘While we have some answers, there are many elements of this case that will likely never be answered,’ Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden said in a statement released Tuesday.
