ST. PAUL — The family of a stillborn baby discarded in Regions Hospital's dirty laundry after staff promised to cremate the remains is suing the medical institution. The mother of the child, Esmeralda Hernandez, filed a lawsuit against the St. Paul hospital in Ramsey County District Court earlier this month along with several of her family members. The civil suit accuses Regions of reckless interference with a dead body. The family is seeking damages "far in excess of $50,000" for their ongoing pain related to the incident, according to legal documents.

It went on to detail how Weigel had plastered naked pictures of her that the two took while they were still a couple on her new boyfriend's Facebook page. The photos were attached in the email.
