'Baby Doe,' Toddler in Boston Who Washed Up to Shoreline, Not ID'd Yet

By    |   Monday, 06 Jul 2015 08:44 AM

"Baby Doe," the dead toddler found on a shoreline near Boston last month, is seen in a new computer-generated composite image released by authorities in hopes of positively identifying the child.

The body of the 4-year-old girl was found June 25 on Deer Island in Winthrop, Massachusetts, wearing white, polka-dot leggings. A zebra-printed blanket was also found near her, authorities told Boston.com. The website reported that a woman walking her dog along the western shoreline of Deer Island, a peninsula in Boston Harbor, spotted the body.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created the "Baby Doe" images depicting the child "as she may have appeared in life," Suffolk County District Attorney's Office stated, according to Boston.com.

Authorities have not yet been able to come up with an identification, according to WBZ-TV.

"Who she is remains a mystery to us," Suffolk District Attorney Dan Conley told reporters during a news conference Thursday, adding that an autopsy has been performed on the body.

"State and local police have been trying to identify her through missing persons reports and appeals to the public. Those efforts have not yet been successful," he continued.

WBZ-TV reported that police have received "dozens" of tips on the case but none have gotten them any closer to identifying the girl. "Baby Doe" appeared to be about 3-and-a-half feet tall, weighing about 30 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair, authorities told the television station. CNN reported that the body was discovered inside a trash bag.

On Saturday, Massachusetts State Police updated the public about its search on Facebook, putting to rest that the body was note that of a West Virginia girl they have received tips on.

"We are extremely grateful for the many tips we have received, and we ask the public to keep sharing this little girl's photo and information so that we may continue to receive and follow up on leads," the state police's Facebook statement read.

"Many commenters have mentioned Aliayah Lunsford, the missing West Virginia girl. Please note that we have explored that lead and are confident that our little girl is not Aliayah. Thank you again and continue to send us your tips," the statement continued.
