Boston ‘Baby Doe’ identified, mum arrested


The girl known as “Baby Doe” — who in June was found dead, wrapped in a trash bag on a
rocky shoreline in Boston Harbor — has been identified as Bella Bond, a law enforcement source said on Friday.

Rachelle Bond, the girl’s mother, and her boyfriend, Michael McCarthy, have been arrested
in connection with the death, the source said. The charges against them were to be announced Friday
McCarthy is not Bella’s biological father, according to the source.

The case of the mysterious girl, whose adorable brown eyes and cherubic face — as rendered by
forensic artist Christi Andrews and distributed by authorities in Massachusetts — caught the
attention of millions.

The couple was picked up after Boston homicide detectives received a tip on Thursday.

McCarthy is in custody at a Boston-area hospital and Bond is being held at a separate location.

The arrests came after a search warrant was executed in Boston’s Mattapan neighborhood on

Authorities were to hold a news conference later Friday, a source said.

The tiny remains of Bella– Baby Doe– were found on June 25 wrapped in a black trash bag, wearing polka dot pants lying next
to a zebra blanket along the shore of Deer Island, a narrow peninsula just east of Boston’s Logan
Police released photos of the blanket and the polka-dot leggings she was wearing.

Authorities previously said they believe that “Baby Doe” was about 4 years old at the time of her death. She was 3 feet 6 inches tall and weighed about 30 pounds.

Her remains were discovered along the shore of Deer Island, which has a 2.6 mile recreational perimeter accessible to the public, according to the National Park Service. The island is near the Port of Boston, one of the busiest on the eastern
It was unclear how long she had been dead but there was some decomposition when her remains were removed from the trash bag.

Authorities analyzed pollen found on the girl’s pants and blanket and determined that it “came from trees and plants around Boston,” Jake Wark, a spokesman for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, said last month.

“This pollen analysis also suggests that ‘Baby Doe’ may have been placed on the shoreline, rather than
washed ashore from a great distance,” Wark said.

  19. Hello! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group
    of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche.
    Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on. You have done
    a marvellous job!


  20. The biggest pointer that the majority of brand-new
    your net biz owners can ever get their hands on would be to
    constantly beware on dealing with other people online.

    Considering that web marketing has actually taken the spotlight in the current
    years, low life fraudsters have likewise seen it to be a great place to swindle
    good and honest individuals’s cash.
    Eric- Those days yes however lately I have actually been very hectic and only talk through the phone.
    Normally I would request for solution for a certain brand name which my TV maintenance and repair buddies are
    familiar with. Occasionally customers want the
    held up quick and the fastest option is to call up my maintenance
    and repair good friends. With this way, I conserved
    lots of time. My TV repair work buddies also do call me
    for answers if they face issues in TV repair.

    But this situation didn’t take place in a large business.

    Considered that you could count the company’s staff
    on one hand and not utilise all the fingers, it was more
    like the pinkie wasn’t dealing with the thumb.
    Since they do not believe they can do it themselves or they do not have time, the most significant reason that
    people desire to outsource this part of their online marketing is.

    The author of the post went on to highlight a “Want a free roofing system?” advertising indicator published by a roof business.

    Probabilities are, as soon as the roofer has the unwary
    property owner in his clutches that “totally free” roof is going to
    end up costing a pretty penny. Lesson number two, to steal another overused maxim, “There is no free lunch”.
    or roofing as the case might be.
    Make a business plan; you have to have a strategy. Plan out your daily activities
    for one month at a time. Bring them out, weigh the outcomes,
    customize internet marketing if need be then prepare for
    the next thirty days.
    Ok, so, you join the online forums, online forums and more forums
    seeking some details or posting a question? What you get is information overload hits, and you toss your hands in the air in surrender.

    Having a solid assurance is a vital part of your sales
    copy. If you desire individuals to purchase your product, you need to first offer them some reassurance.
    By revealing self-confidence in your very own product, you help to instill that feeling in others.

    Their worries about buying will certainly be put aside if you can prove that you are confident about what you’re selling
    and that you will presume all the threat. This works
    like a psychological trigger and automatically makes
    the prospect feel comfortable.

    article writing. Select a few which you can utilise right away before your

    the lenders, finding a workplace area to work out of, employing loan officers (if you decide to), and getting the essentials of your business established.

    With all these “get-rich-quick” pledges, the Web masters are in fact offering
    the WRONG expectations to people. Think it or not. the experts are the ones that contribute to the
    high failure rate in affiliate marketing.
    So, make sure of who you are picking up from!
    With classified advertisements, the problem is that once you stop publishing ads, the cash stops being available in. With
    these types of Affiliate marketing marketing,
    you can go on trip and still get paid. You will certainly make cash from house while you sleep since your advertisements will
    certainly be working for you 24/7, instead of you constantly working publishing
    advertisements! You will certainly remain to earn money the rest
    of your life based off the work you did now. As soon as
    you have enough ads out there, you might ultimately stop entirely and remain to
    generate income. Your online Affiliate marketing company
    would be operating on autopilot!
    The author of the post went on to highlight a “Want a totally free roofing?” advertising indicator posted by a
    roofing company. Probabilities are, once the roofer has the unsuspecting
    homeowner in his clutches that “totally free” roofing system
    is going to end up costing a very penny. Lesson number two, to steal
    another overused maxim, “There is no complimentary lunch”.
    or roofing system as the case may be.
    For numerous, working from house beginnings with the concern internet marketing “What will I do as a business?” Although this is a valid concern that has to be attended to, the next huge issue
    is how to promote yourself, and your brand-new work from home venture?

    Work at home jobs with no fees are on the Internet.

    You can sign-up with a business as their affiliate, and accept have them pay you just when you make a sale.
    There is no limit on how many suppliers that you can partner
    with. Putting forth the time and effort can produce multiple streams of
    earnings for your online business. Affiliate marketing has lots of benefits and have been shown to make you the most money
    in the least quantity of time. You do not need to call customers and you can put your website on auto-pilot and make commissions 24/7.

    If you scan this swiftly, you will comprehend the situation the author is trying to communicate however there
    are problems in the way this paragraph is composed and, if you check out the whole page, you will certainly discover problems with the continuity of the
    story. The first problem is that, due to bad construction, this paragraph does not in fact make sense.
    For example, one sentence reads “When there was a knock at the door.” A comma instead
    of a stop after “TELEVISION” would help a bit to making good
    sense however it would still be an awkward sentence.

    Likewise, I understand how a crowd scatters but how does a single person handle “scattering” on his own?
    He most likely implied “scrambling” however the reader must
    not have to work to analyze definition, its part of
    the author’s job to make the meaning clear.
