NEW YORK (PIX11) – Tiona Rodriguez was initially arrested for shoplifting from a midtown Victoria’s Secret last Thursday.

Then police found the body of her newborn son in a bag. Now, the teen is getting death threats online, according to the NY Daily News. Her lawyer says the threats probably started on Facebook.

“The mother informed me that Tiona was getting threats on the Internet,” defense lawyer Genay Ann Leitman told the paper.

Rodriquez’s baby was full term and weighed about eight pounds. Rodriguez has another son who is almost 2.

    Doesn't surprise me, there's some folks out there with some mighty strong beliefs. I can see why they're angry. But me ,myself don't condone threats. My vote is prison.

      clearly there is something wrong mentally with her. what on earth would posess this girl/teen to carry with her while shoplifting, a dead baby in a bag? i don't think she needs to be in prison.

    This is a tragic and horrible situation. Weather she knew she was pregnant or not gives her no reason to commit this disgusting act! She should have went to the hospital and dealt with the consequences or should have been using contraception to prevent another pregnancy! Fact is, this girl got caught and instead of being responsible and doing the right thing an innocent life is gone and she destroyed her life and this is something that she will have to live with!
