Lawsuit seeks to restore parental rights in lost baby case

( KTRS ) Fifty years after a gospel singer says she was told her daughter died at birth and months after the woman learned her daughter was still alive, a judge is being asked to restore the birth mother’s parental rights.

Attorney Albert Watkins says Melanie Gilmore seeks to invalidate her 1983 adoption and re-establish Zella Jackson Price as her legal mother.

The action would allow Gilmore to be an heir and give Watkins access to more information about the 1965 birth.

Price’s story initially raised concerns that a baby theft ring operated at Homer G. Phillips Hospital, which served black residents until closing in 1979.
