Baby Hope: Police Investigate NY Cold Case

Post by sallypelt on 08.10.13 22:11

Police believe they have identified the mother of Baby Hope - a girl who was found murdered two decades ago in one of New York's most enduring crime mysteries.
The girl was between three and five years old when she was found in a bag inside a cooler dumped in a wooded area just off a highway in July 1991.
Nobody had reported her missing, and investigators later said she was undernourished and had been sexually abused.
A law enforcement official tells the Associated Press that investigators used DNA to identify a woman they believe is the mother of the dead child.

Police received a tip from someone who knew the woman after that person learned of the cold case from a publicity push by the NYPD over the summer,the official said.
The official was not authorised to speak about the case and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
The New York Times also reported the break in the case.
The case dates to July 23, 1991, when a road worker discovered the girl's remains inside a picnic cooler along the Henry Hudson Parkway after smelling something rotting.
Detectives theorised at the time that she had been suffocated before being dumped like garbage on a grassy incline.
They estimated she was dead six to eight days before the cooler was found.
In an interview in July, retired Detective Jerry Giorgio said he had pursued hundreds of leads but none panned out.
He had the case from 1991 until he retired from the force.
"It was so frustrating," Mr Giorgio said recently. "We initially thought we'll get her identified and go from there and probably solve the case. It didn't happen."
As the frustration mounted, so did detectives' affection for the victim.
They began calling her "our baby", and eventually she became "Baby Hope" because they hoped and prayed they would solve the case, Mr Giorgio said.
He was instrumental in organising a burial in a Bronx cemetery for the girl in 1993.
Hundreds attended the funeral.

Blood and cadaver alerts

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
