Baby Doe, a little girl whose body was found on a Boston beach, has been identified and a person has been arrested and taken into custody over her death.
Police executed a search warrant on a home in Boston neighborhood Thursday night, which led them to determine the girl’s identity. It has been nearly three months since Baby Doe was discovered.
Last month, based on an analysis of pollen that was found clinging to her pants, investigators determined that she was likely a local. “The amount and the types of pollen that were on those items suggest that she was from the Boston area,” Jake Wark, spokesman for Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley, told NBC News. “That’s somewhat reassuring, because that’s been a theory from the start.” h/t nbcnews
The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office told news outlets that the “investigation remains very active but, beyond that, we have no updates to share.”
Authorities have not yet released Baby Doe’s name.
