    According to NamUs, the DNA sample is available but not yet submitted. I interpret that to mean that it is not in the FBI DNA Database (CODIS). I don't know how current or accurate that information is though. It may that they haven't updated the NamUs casefile.

    This case was my very first interest in true crime. I remember reading the book and crying. I so wish they would identify this child, someone has lived with this secret for a very long time and this lil' child has gone for far too long without justice or even the dignity of her identity. If something isn't done soon with the DNA I fear her murderer will leave this life (if they haven't already) and will never be identified.

    Thanks Carl! I'm starting to think "Judy Brown", who contacted LE about the case three days after Baby Hope was discovered may be related to the little girl. Possibly her mother.

    What about....

    Vivian Paola Montanez Castellanos
    Missing since June 21, 1988 from Cucuta, Colombia.
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics

    Date Of Birth: August 21, 1986
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 22 months old
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Brown eyes; black hair.

    Circumstances of Disappearance

    On June 21, 1988, Vivian was taken to a park by her nanny who then fled with her. There were others involved in the kidnapping as well.
    The child's father has a manufacturing plant in San Antonio de Tachira, Venezuela across the border from Cucuta, Colombia (very close to each other). Two men from the factory, the nanny and another woman were trying to receive ransom from the family, but the Cucuta Police were notified and the people were caught and sent to prison for 3 years. They said that they abandoned the girl on a mountainous country road. They have always stuck to that story.

    In 1999 or 2000, the family received a lead from one of the kidnappers' family that the girl was in Denver, Colorado. This lead was pursued and the local news media did a story on Vivian Paola. There were never any new leads after that.

    The family believes the girl was taken into Venezuela and then sold, and possibly has been in the USA living for many years with a very controlling family. They also believe the girl is not allowed to have very many friends.

    ** Second last photo is age enhanced to age 4
    ** Last photo is of Vivian Castellonos's sister

    --------

    The only possible rule-out off the top is the fact that in pictures Vivian Castellonos had pierced ears in 1988, I looked into this a bit and found out holes with no earrings can heal in as little as 5 months possibly leaving little indentation. NamUs reads the UID's body condition: not recognizable - Decomposing/putrefaction. So if there was a little indentations it's possible that they were not noticed due to body condition.

    A new article on this case...

    http://www.metro.us/newyork/local/ar...-found-in-1991

    NYPD reopens cold case of dead toddler girl found in 1991
    DANIELA BERNAL
    NEW YORK
    Published: July 24, 2012 3:44 p.m.

    The NYPD re-opened a cold case Tuesday involving the remains of a toddler girl found stuffed in a cooler off the Henry Hudson parkway 21 years ago this month.

    In a sketch released by officials today, Jane Doe, renamed Baby Hope, is pictured with dark brown or black shoulder-length hair and bangs....
    This is the new sketch released. I hope it is OK to post this from the article...

    I remember this case on either America's Most Wanted or Unsolved Mysteries (maybe both) - very sad. The magazine True Detective also covered the crime in their May 1992 issue.
    This is my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    BTW - the author of that magazine article is given as Christofer Pierson.

    Whether connected to the murder or not, those Polaroids are puzzling to me. If you wanted to rid yourself of that sort of thing, why toss them beside a road? It would seem to me that a person would want to burn them to destroy them completely.

    I'm also surprised that the semen hasn't turned up a match. Maybe the guy died soon after committing this murder.

    Does anyone know is the girl's body was examined for the presence of drugs?
    This is my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    I came across a New York Times article about this little girl from September 21, 1991. It has some addition information that hasn't [to the best of my knowledge] been mentioned here or on the little girl's Doe Network page.

    No Name, Few Clues: The Case of 'Baby Hope' http://www.nytimes.com/1991/09/21/ny...pe.html?src=pm

    "We were confident it was someone from the New York area," Detective Giorgio said. "That area was known by whoever put the body there."
    The company [Igloo coolers] was able to determine that 79 coolers of that batch had been shipped to New York State. But the dealers did not keep records of purchasers.
    She [Judy Brown] dropped in some more coins and let slip that she was from Westchester.
    On Aug. 1, the Medical Examiner's office called in a consultant, Peggy C. Caldwell, a forensic anthropologist affiliated with Rutgers University. She urged investigators to expand rather than narrow the field. She said the child was not necessarily Hispanic...
    Ms. Caldwell also said that when a body decomposes in a small space, blood tends to discolor the teeth. The girl's teeth were only slightly discolored. She concluded that the body had started to decompose elsewhere and that it had been put in the cooler later, perhaps to move it.
    After reading the article, I wondered if "Judy Brown's" description of the couple was given to lead the police in the wrong direction (since no one else saw them and the forensic anthropologist did not necessarily think the little girl was Hispanic)? How old did "Ms. Brown" sound? How young did the woman who called the second time sound?

    This is the New York Times article when they buried her two years later -- http://www.nytimes.com/1993/07/24/ny...pe.html?src=pm

    I did find a couple (boy friend and girlfriend)that was reported missing from New York in November 1991.They were visiting from New York city.The ages are off. A witness saw a man and woman with a cooler near the area Baby Hope was found.Do you know any more on these people?Did Xiomara Rodriguez have any children or family members or know anyone that fit Baby Hopes Description or maybe they were hurt too.

    Okay it may sound like an outlandish theory, but what if Baby Hope has not been reproted missing, because she has already been declared as having died? Let's say Baby Hope was born and raise in a poor third world country and maybe one or her real parents had died and the surviving parent decided to come the America with Hope to begin a new life and meet an abusive partner who killed Hope, and it could be that Baby Hope's other family does not realize she was murdered.

    I'm sorry if this is something that has already been discussed, but I wonder if this little girl was brought to the US in some sort of illegal adoption from another country? I really don't know what the laws/process is to bring a child in. Did LE ever consider doing isotope testing on her to narrow down where she came from?
