In memory of Anjelica Castillo
Age: 4 years old

Also known as Baby Hope.

Manhattan detectives who found her 18 years ago gave her a name — Baby Hope — and a proper burial. But they're still trying to give her justice. Detectives are hoping advances in DNA may finally help figure out who she was and catch her killer. Detectives from the 34th Precinct finally buried the child two years to the day after she was found. She was laid to rest covered in a white communion dress. Detectives at the 34th Precinct pooled money together to bury Baby Hope.

Update as of Oct 13, 2013: Cousin arrested in "Baby Hope" killing after 22 years.
