The Mother, whom police have now identified as Shoshanna Muhammad, had been walking the streets in a daze with the infant in her arms, along with an opened package of diapers and a baby bottle. Strangers tried to approach the woman who appeared to be in distress, but she warded off any assistance. She finally stumbled on to a random apartment building and approached Lydia Romero (pictured), a resident there and total stranger. The Mom placed the child, diapers, and bottle on a step in the hallway.
