Photo comes to light in investigation of trunk babies mystery

Published 09/02/2010, Los Angeles Times

Image is that of a woman who lived in building where remains were discovered
Janet M. Barrie was a private nurse who worked for a Los Angeles couple from the 1930s to the 1960s. The couple, a dentist and his wife, lived in the same MacArthur Park apartment building where the trunk was discovered. When the dentist’s wife died in 1964, Barrie married her former employer. It is unclear whether the children belonged to Barrie, the wife of the dentist, or someone else, Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck said at a news conference Thursday.
