On Sept. 28, 2020, deputies went to the home of Peyton Green, 20, “due to the possibility that a newborn may need assistance,” the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said.

At Green’s residence, deputies discovered the body of a dead infant, the sheriff’s office said.

Law enforcement launched an investigation into the newborn’s death, and a year later, on Sept. 30, 2021, deputies located Green in Wyoming after obtaining a warrant for her arrest.

Petyon was taken into custody and booked into the Douglas County Detention Facility on Oct. 5. She now faces charges of first-degree murder, tampering with a deceased human body, and attempt to influence a public servant.

Green is being held on a no-bond hold.
