    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    BOSTON —Investigators have set up two new ways for the public to provide information in the ongoing effort to identify a little girl whose body was found almost three weeks ago in a trash bag on Deer Island.

    Photos: Girl's clothing, blanket

    People can provide information via anonymous text by sending "GIRL" followed by the tip to 67283, or by calling a dedicated 24-hour hotline at 617-396-5655.

    "We know we are one tip away from solving this mystery," Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said.

    Special Texas lab joins Deer Island investigation
    Her DNA was recently sent to the University of North Texas, which he said specializes in familial mitochondrial DNA, the advanced technique of matching a person’s DNA to their close family members instead of simply identifying two identical samples.

    The process, which takes several months, could match the child to a close adult relative who may be in a national database like the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System, or CODIS.

    Stuffed animals, drawings made by children, and rocks spelling out messages were just a few things FOX25's Catherine Parrotta observed on Wednesday morning.

    This long article appeared on the Channel 5 website over the weekend. I think it might be from the Boston Globe originally but there's no credit or link. Lots of information about how the investigation has gone:

    http://www.wcvb.com/news/detectives-...sland/34715284

    "On that 41st day, the results of the pollen analysis came back. Baby Doe had played among the pines and oaks of New England; she was dusted with traces of privet hedges and cedar-of-Lebanon, which are not native but are often planted in the suburbs. The soot mixed in with the pollen told investigators her surroundings were urban. Somewhere near Boston, they concluded."

    There are not that many cedars of Lebanon around here. The only ones I know about are in Jamaica Plain at the Arboretum. I'm sure there are others, of course, but that means extremely local. https://goo.gl/maps/FoAXG

    Prior testing of pollen samples recovered from the trash bag the girl was found in suggest she spent time in the Greater Boston area prior to her death. The girl's body did not show signs of advanced composition, suggesting that she died in the area rather than at a distant location.

    don't know that I have ever seen the lack of advanced decomp confirmed before. Probably old news to you guys

    I wish these tests had revealed more

    Memorial mass held on Beacon Hill for Baby Doe

    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A memorial mass was held on Beacon Hill Wednesday to remember a little girl we have come to know as Baby Doe.

    The state's most powerful political leaders, including the house speaker, governor and attorney general attended the service at the Paulist Center on Park Street.

    Last month the remains of the child were found in a trash bag on Deer Island. Her identity is still a mystery.

    "All of us are trying to find some solace, and I think today we did that," House Speaker Robert Deleo told FOX25.

    His office organized the mass because he wanted to do something to show she is remembered.

    Interesting. I wonder if the trash bags used at the park could match the bag Baby Girl was found in?
