LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - It is nearly three months since 7 News reported on the body of a newborn baby found in Allen Parish. Authorities believe the  baby was delivered by zydeco performer Rosie Ledet. While the baby's body was found in Allen Parish, it was believed to have been born in Acadia Parish. Thursday the district attorney's office there is saying they will not pursue any charges. And on Friday, the District Attorney for Allen Parish told 7 News he would not press charges.

"The initial call came in through 911 to the Jeff Davis Sheriff's Office. Jeff Davis Sheriff's Office dispatched Acadian Ambulance and they proceeded to the residence, which ended up being located in Allen Parish. Our deputies went our there and the body of an infant child was recovered," said Chief Deputy Grant Willis with the Allen Parish Sheriff's Office.

Ledet is said to have had a miscarriage on July, 1 2009 in her hometown of Iota. She then ,allegedly, wrapped the baby in a blanket and rode with one of her band mate's to his home in Allen Parish, where she is believed to have put the infant in the storage shed on his property.
