A woman walking her dog on June 25 discovered the child’s remains in a trash bag.
One of the working theories is that Baby Doe was placed on the shoreline, but investigators have drawn no definitive conclusions about whether the remains were placed on Deer Island or washed up there, Suffolk County District Attorney spokesman Jake Wark told CNN this week. Massachusetts State Police posted it on Facebook.
State police and prosecutors announced Monday, July 20, 2015, that theyll put a composite image of the girl they call Baby Doe along with text and telephone hotlines on 84 billboards around the state.
The girl is thought to be around 4 years old.
The child’s body was wrapped in a zebra-striped fleece blanket and wore polka dot leggings, officials have said. The phone line is 617-396-5655.
Those with information regarding the child can text GIRL and their tip to 62783. She was about three-and-a-half feet tall and weighed about 30 pounds.
In the days and weeks that followed, investigators have acted on hundreds of leads and coordinated dozens of well-being checks on children locally, nationally and internationally. Authorities said the text-a-tip line is completely anonymous and does not provide any information about the tipster. All tips will go directly to the Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit, which is investigating the little girl’s death. However, none of these measures have led to the child’s identification.
