NEW YORK (AP) — The name of the 4-year-old New York City murder victim known for 22 years only as "Baby Hope" has been added to her headstone.
Family members and investigators gathered Friday at St. Raymond's Cemetery in the Bronx at a graveside dedication for Anjelica Castillo.
Detectives nicknamed the then-unidentified child "Baby Hope," helped arrange her burial and paid for her headstone. A placard had previously read "the identity of this little girl is unknown."
Anjelica's identity was revealed last month after police announced they'd arrested a 52-year-old cousin of the child in the cold-case killing. He's been arraigned on a murder charge but his lawyer has questioned a police confession that sealed his arrest.
The child's body was found in a cooler alongside a Manhattan highway.
