SAN ANTONIO – Pamela Allen with Eagles Flight Advocacy is on a mission to give the baby found dead off Interstate 37 last month a proper burial.

Allen said she was devastated when she received the call about the baby boy, who she calls, "baby Christian" because it reminds her of "baby Noel."

Baby Noel was found dead at a recycling plant just before Christmas of 2014. His mother was charged with murder.

Allen gave baby Noel a proper burial and she said to do another burial for another baby is very difficult.

"As we were burying baby Noel I just promised him, ‘Baby I'm going to make sure your name does not get forgotten, and I'm going to make sure to do everything that I possibly can to make sure that this does not happen again,'" said Allen. "So, for it to happen almost a year and half later was devastating."

Volunteers will be raising money to pay for baby Christian's funeral on Wednesday at the Joe's Crab Shack on Interstate 10 from 11 a.m. until midnight.

The cause of the baby's death is still pending. Baby Christian's funeral is set for July 11.
