US attorney says evidence disputes allegation of stolen baby

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The U.S. attorney in St. Louis says recently discovered medical files further dispute a woman’s allegations that her baby was stolen from a St. Louis hospital five decades ago.

U.S. Attorney Richard Callahan said in a news conference Friday that medical records show Melanie Diane Gilmore, who was named Diane Jackson at birth, was born at City Hospital No. 1 in 1965.

That contradicts the story of Gilmore’s mother, Zella Jackson Price, who alleges that Gilmore was stolen at birth from another hospital, Homer G. Phillips, after she was told the child had died.

The reunion of Price and her daughter drew international attention earlier this year. A DNA test confirmed their relationship.

Price’s story prompted hundreds of other women to come forward with similar concerns.
