    Syracuse police are investigating a dead baby found in a bag at Nottingham High School. who police have identified as the mother of the child, brought a backpack to the school nurse's office and asked to leave the bag there. Her identity has not been
    revealed. Sometime later, the nurse looked in the bag after smelling something and discovered the body.

    School officials did not confirm the death until Wednesday (13th.) Investigators determined the baby was not born at the school and had died prior to being left at the school. Police are continuing to investigate the baby's death and declined to comment further, including to say the baby's gender.

    Chief Frank Fowler said Wednesday that Police did not inform the public about the incident in order to protect the mother's privacy.
    This is a medical issue. It's a very sensitive subject. We had to take our time with this to protect this young lady's rights in this situation."

    But New York's top open government expert said that any argument by police that information could not be released because of medical privacy laws is flawed.
    "HIPPA does not apply in this situation," Robert J. Freeman said, referring to the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.
    Freeman said that the incident, which occurred in a public school, involves a matter of public interest."It seems to me that there should have a public disclosure," he said.
