The medical examiner has declared the case of a baby found dead in a shopping bag last year a homicide.

Tiona Rodriguez, 17, was arrested in October after a security guard at a Victoria's Secret discovered the body in her bag as she was leaving the store.

Rodriguez originally told investigators she was carrying the baby after a miscarriage and didn't know what to do, but the medical examiner said the baby was purposefully suffocated.

Rodriguez wasn't charged at the time.

The Manhattan district attorney declined to comment on possible future charges.
