Day 5 of landfill search for baby allegedly drowned by mom in Bloomington hotel tub, put in dumpster

Police on Monday are in their fifth day picking through a massive landfill in search of the body of a 7-month-old boy who prosecutors say was drowned in a Bloomington hotel bathtub by his mother and thrown away in a dumpster.

Bloomington Deputy Police Chief Kim Clauson said Monday that detectives have been at the Pine Bend landfill in southeastern Inver Grove Heights since Thursday looking for baby Mateo Harding.

Pine Bend is the state's largest open landfill, with a capacity of 33.9 million cubic yards. An expansion in the works would boost that number to 42.1 million cubic yards. Its waste comes from the metro area, greater Minnesota and Wisconsin.
