Arrests Made in Kidnap, Murder of 3-Week-Old Girl

Police said Wednesday that four people have been arrested in connection with the kidnapping and murder of a 3-week-old little girl in Long Beach earlier this year. Little Eliza Delacruz was taken from her home Jan. 3, after assailants broke into her family’s home and shot her mother, father and uncle. The infant’s body was found the following afternoon in a trash bin behind a strip mall in Imperial Beach. Police added that the suspects were part of an elaborate plot that began with a woman who told her boyfriend she had given birth and went looking for a newborn to present as her own.
