How could someone abandon an infant in the woods?

A news clip from NBC-29 struck my heart: "Police confirmed ... a body found in the woods near Interstate 81 is, in fact, missing 5-month-old Cory Cole."

Five months old. Alone. Left in the woods in winter. Beside the interstate as if tossed out like a rag doll.

At five months an infant is beginning to reveal a personality, smiling, recognizing, snuggling. At five months an infant is already an ingrained member of the family. And at five months an infant is totally dependent for everything.

How could anyone anywhere hurt a baby? My heart hurts thinking of that poor child....
