Police officers and firefighters contributed in a service for a newborn girl found dead last summer near a Southern California highway.

The girl, known as "Baby Jane Doe" was discovered in a cardboard box wrapped in a t-shirt with stripes and a floral pattern, on July 27 near Interstate 15 in Corona, east of Los Angeles.

Authorities are still investigating the death of the infant in the hopes of discovering her identity. They haven't been able to identify potential family members through DNA, and are now asking for the public's help in the investigation.

Dozens of people attended the funeral, bearing flowers or stuffed animals. One of them, Lorena Palacios placed miniature Christmas trees by the casket:"It's Christmas. I have three kids. Every kid wants a tree."
