    Are there any newspaper articles on her? She reminds me of Baby Hope.

    This case reminds me of of the Atcel Olmedo case back in 2005. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Atcel_Olmedo

    My NamUs search came as: 0 cases found based on Female, 01/15/1971 to 07/21/1977, Hispanic/Latino, 0 to 6

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1902dftx.html - time-frame is iffy, age would be close, white, not hispanic, missing from TX

    My guess is that she was never reported missing.

    Unfortunately, this is almost certain to be one of those cases that will not involve a MP report, probably because her "caretaker" is the one responsible for her death, and for obvious reasons would never report her missing.

    So sad. She'd be the same age as my daughter.

    Jason, the person who wrote the article, added a comment in August saying she had been identified, but there were no details. Another commenter said her information was given to Todd Matthews at Namus, so if somebody is in touch with him, maybe he could give an update.

    This is a really sad one... I wonder if she could have been from Mexico or Central America, which could explain why she wasn't reported missing in the US. It struck me as a bit odd that a little girl her age would be wearing a shirt that read "I'm a little cowboy" (not cowgirl?). Could it be that the family didn't speak English, so they wouldn't have known what the shirt said? I can't see many parents (especially back then) knowingly buying a boy's shirt for a little girl. Assuming she was even reported missing, does anyone know about databases for the missing in Latin America?
