It's DipJar to the rescue, as reported on by Bon Appetit .

The body of a 2-year-old Annapolis girl was found Thursday night in garbage bound for a Virginia landfill, police said, and documents charging her mother with first-degree murder say Chelsea Booth admitted to smothering her daughter and dumping the body. Police were awaiting results of an autopsy of Kassidey Capri Booth performed Friday by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, hoping to learn if it supports what 25-year-old Booth told detectives earlier in the week. Questioned by investigators following a tip that the girl had not been seen in a few days, Booth said the girl's father put a "Muslim curse" on her and that she "believed Kassidey to be possessed by an evil spirit," according to charging documents.

The state medical examiner's office has ruled that the death of a newborn who was found Oct. 4 in a Charles Village trash bin after his mother went for treatment at a local hospital, was a homicide by asphyxiation. Police say the investigation is continuing; the death is not yet reflected in this year's homicide count. Police said the 22-year-old mother, who was involved in a training program with a Christian volunteer organization, went to Union Memorial Hospital with abdominal pain, and doctors discovered during an examination that she had recently given birth.

Two days before her body was found next to a trash bin in Southeast Baltimore, Annie McCann drank a cappuccino with extra whipped cream at a Little Italy pastry shop. She asked to try a cannoli and got a free sample. A waitress at Vaccaro's recalled seeing the 16-year-old girl, describing her as "friendly and polite," a teenager who "seemed nice. " Annie was with an older woman, and the two sat at table No. 8 for about 40 minutes. This account comes from the notes of Davis W. Morton, a retired homicide detective who interviewed the waitress for two hours on behalf of Annie's parents and drew a sketch of the mysterious woman, hoping she could finally bring the answers the McCanns have sought.

"Dear baby, I'm sorry what your mother did to you." This was written in cursive magenta letters on a white sheet of paper attached to the side of a trash bin in an alley behind St. John's United Methodist Church in Charles Village. There had been more than a dozen more like it - unsigned prayers and admonishments, expressions of anger and sadness - accompanied by drawings of trash bins, colored in bright blue and green. Some words were misspelled, some grammar fractured, but the meaning was not lost.

Last year, when a man was killed after going down a trash chute in downtown Baltimore's Park Charles apartment building, residents grudgingly accepted the police conclusion that the death was a bizarre accident. But after a recent Loyola University Maryland graduate — identified by police as 23-year-old Emily Hauze — died in a similar way Sunday, people who live in the Charles Center high-rise are not sure whether to believe that the deaths could be a tragic coincidence. "You wouldn't think that it could happen again," said Phillip Flanders, a 26-year-old graduate engineering student at the Johns Hopkins University who has lived on the building's ninth floor through both deaths.
