Great police work! Glad this woman will be paying for the crime she allegedly committed 27 years ago.

There is no way she traveled back and forth between the U.S. and Mexico, this many years, without using an alias. We need stronger background checks now.

>> Yolanda Ortega, who was 27 years old at the time, fled to Mexico with her husband prior to the San Mateo County Coroner Office's determination of the child's cause of death.

Where is the husband? It is possible that he is working in California under a different name. [Portion removed.]
