Arrest warrant issued for dead baby's father

We've learned an arrest warrant has been issued for a person of interest in the death of an infant. The warrant is from an unrelated case. An arrest warrant was issued for Travis 'TJ' Mullis, the baby's father, for allegedly enticing a child.

Meanwhile, investigators in Galveston may use DNA to positively identify the baby boy, whose body was discovered earlier this week. He was found Tuesday, lying face down and wearing only a diaper on Galveston's east end. The woman who police believe is the boy's mother, Caren Kohberger, told police Thursday she's getting a lawyer and will no longer speak directly to investigators.

Footprints of the baby have yet to be positively matched with those on a birth certificate.

The last person known to see the baby alive is Mullis. Galveston police consider him a person of interest and are looking for him. He's believed to be in a 2002, silver, four-door Hyundai Accent. It has duct tape on the right passenger side door handle. The plate number is: 067-RJP.
