LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say they are no closer today than they were one year ago to knowing who dumped a newborn boy in the trash at a Las Vegas Strip casino on Mother's Day.

Las Vegas homicide Lt. Lew Roberts says authorities never received a tip or a call after the baby was found May 11, 2008 at the Excalibur hotel-casino.

The tiny body was found by a hotel employee in a restroom near a bank of elevators.

Authorities say the baby was not stillborn and had taken breaths. Officials say his placenta and umbilical cord were attached to his body, which was wrapped in a pillow case and a hotel gift bag.

Investigators have reviewed 150 hours of surveillance footage from the casino. Roberts says too many people were near the area to draw any conclusions.
