    Remarks of District Attorney Daniel F. Conley on Arrests in the Homicide of “Baby Doe,” Bella Bond

    BOSTON, Sept. 18, 2015–Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley today delivered the following remarks on the identification of Bella Bond, known only as “Baby Doe” after her body was found in a trash bag almost three months ago, and charges against two defendants:

    “Her name was Bella.

    “Based on interviews and evidence recovered pursuant to multiple search warrants during the past 24 hours, the child we knew as Baby Doe has been identified as Bella Neveah Amoroso Bond. She was about two and a half years old when she died, and a resident of Dorchester. Pending DNA comparisons are still necessary for scientific certainty, but we are extremely confident in this identification.

    “85 days ago, Bella’s body was found in a trash bag on Deer Island. We hoped against hope that her death was not a crime, but the evidence carefully and professionally gathered by the men and women with me today suggests otherwise – this child, whose very name means beauty, was murdered.

    “In light of that evidence, I have authorized the arrest of MICHAEL PATRICK McCARTHY, age 35, for Bella’s murder. McCarthy is currently hospitalized for a medical condition unrelated to this case.

    “Bella’s mother, RACHELLE DEE BOND, age 40, has been placed under arrest as an accessory after the fact to her murder.

    “Based on the facts and evidence developed thus far, which are consistent with the Medical Examiner’s findings, we allege that McCarthy caused Bella’s death, that he did so intentionally, and that he and Bond took specific steps to keep Bella’s death a secret and avoid prosecution.

    “We expect both defendants to be arraigned in Monday in Dorchester Municipal Court.

    “At just shy of three years old, Bella Bond was a true innocent. And the tragedy of her death is compounded by the fact that her short life ended not by illness or accident but, we believe, an act of violence in the very place she should have been safest – her home.

    “Sadly, this is the case for too many victims of child abuse whose tiny voices are silenced. But we will speak on her behalf and seek justice for the crime that took her life.

    “The men and women with me today left no stone unturned toward that end. Assistant District Attorney David Deakin, the chief of our Family Protection and Sexual Assault Unit; Colonel Richard McKeon, Det. Lt. Jack Lannon, and the Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit; and Chief Terence Delehanty and the detectives of the Winthrop Police Department.

    “I want to thank the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children for their non-stop assistance and contributions to the case.

    “And I especially want to thank the Boston Police Department. Homicide detectives received the critical tip that led to a marathon of investigative work over the past 24 hours that brought us to this point.

    “I want to thank you, the media, as well, for covering the search for this child’s identity so faithfully. Every step we took as investigators was magnified and enhanced by the work that reporters, editors, photographers, and videographers put in. The same goes for everyone who linked, shared, or tweeted our calls for assistance – we could never have knocked on 50 million doors, but we had the equivalent of that reach thanks to social media.

    “But I also want to note that this isn’t then end of the case – it’s the beginning. And in deference to the rules of criminal procedure, we are sharply limited in what we say at this early stage, before the defendants have even been arraigned. I ask you to bear this in mind because there’s a great deal we can’t say at this point, but before we take any questions I’d like to give Col. McKeon, Chief Delehanty, and Commissioner Evans a chance to speak.”

    –30–

    All defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

    About the COD that Rachelle is alleging....That's absolutely horrible Though wouldn't something like that show up in an autopsy? I don't know, I guess we'll see on Monday. I'm just praying for this little girl.

    The leggings in the picture on FB were the reverse (black w/white dots vs. white w/black dots) of the ones with Baby Doe, with smaller dots, and lots of kids wear polka dots so maybe not that telling.

So I can't find fault with any of Rachelle's friends who didn't call it in, who possibly even shared the image on FB not realizing it was Bella.
    I agree. Looking at the pictures side by side I don't think I would have made the comparison, especially when there have been other possibilities posted that looked much more like the picture. The nose, mouth and face shape were right, but the eyes, brows and hair were very different, different enough to make someone who even thought about it think it wasn't her.

    They look aged from the older mugshots of the two, so unless they were both re-arrested between the prior mugs posted and now I would guess those are the current ones. Are you saying this dept. does not use a blue background normally or just that most depts don't? Because I've seen all kinds of backgrounds at different depts, sometimes even pictures taken in the same dept can look like a different background based on lighting, angle, time of day or whatever. Sometimes they are even taken in different spots depending on where/when in the booking process the pictures are taken.

    Then again, many states use a blue background for driver's license pictures, which would make her smile a lot less infuriating, but then wtf is up with MM's DL pic? lol I just don't know, but I thought the source said those were today's pics.

    I was just typing this up as the last post was closed.

    LE often holds back details for good reason. If Bella's COD is what is alleged, there would likely be broken ribs; a piece of evidence that the autopsy would reveal but that only the perp(s) and witnesses would know.
    You can hold back from the suffering of the world. You have free permission to do so and it is in accordance with your nature.
    But perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could have avoided.

    I see a few possibilities here:

    1. They may have withheld the COD, despite what they said publicly.
    2. Decomp may have made bruising and bleeding harder to detect (maybe?)
    3. RB is lying.

    I hate to say it but if her COD was in fact due to stomach punches, I just hope she passed as quickly as possible. If not, she could have been alive for several days and died from a very painful infection known as peritonitis and/or sepsis. She may have been very sick for several days, exhibiting severe flu-like symptoms. I'm sorry for mentioning that but its a significant possibility with abdominal trauma.

    bbm -- I'm behind so apologize if someone has already mentioned this. But if she was on her stomach for a while after death, the blood would have settled to the front of her body, which could really obscure any bruises incurred while she was alive.

    Yes, I agree. If Bella was 'punched in the stomach' I am wondering the same thing.

    AND then again maybe the ME and LE chose not to say anything relating to COD with the public.

    Also I bet RB (I will not say Mom when referring to her) is a LIAR.

    Quite possibly. It's my understanding it can also be difficult to ascertain whether blunt force abdominal trauma in children is a result of an accident or abuse without corroborating evidence to support either as well. They may have needed RB's confession as the final puzzle piece.

    Even if she did, that still doesn't prove she was murdered, kwim? I'm thinking, assuming her body was fully intact (no decomp), that they may only have had evidence of an injury - not necessarily what caused it.

    I am really, really sorry to be typing about such a gorgeous little girl so clinically.

    i'm with you there. if she is telling the truth I agree with you, I hope it was quick, because that is definitely something that could have dragged out for days.
    I had bleeding in my stomach a few years ago from an ulcer and I was not well for a few days, lots of pain. I took so much Advil that it made the ulcer bleed even more (ibuprofen is very hard on the stomach, I can't take it AT ALL any more, Dr's orders) so that it opened up caused me to pass out within a couple of hours. If it hadn't opened though I can imagine I would have been in agony for days until I passed out or possibly died from the slow blood loss. We can only pray that didn't happen here.

    I actually hope the mom is lying about that, because any way you look at it it's horrible, because it wasn't something that happened in an instant and she might have never seen coming.
