Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Agencies try to raise awareness about newborn safe haven law
Two local agencies are trying to promote the safe havens for newborns law. The law allows women to confidentially leave their newborn babies at police stations, fire stations or hospitals and not face any charges.
Franklin County Childrens Services and the non-profit Teen Pregnancy Asssistance Group will place billboards in the area telling people about the law.
Children Services director John Saros says mothers need to know there are options.
In the past year, Saros says there have been three infant abandonments with one baby dying.
