    Unlikely as she would have been 7 in 1997. Its unlikely the mother would die 3 years after. (Assuming the toddler died in 1994 to fit into the upper reach of the toddler age estimate).

    Only way it could fit in, is if the mother somehow tracked the perp down, but met a grizzly fate. That said, surely we can see if the mother is still alive?

    Excellent. So pricey bedding that we can assume came from someone's home and not a hotel.

    Looks like the Wamsutta Brand is currently sold at Bed Bath and Beyond.

    Wamsutta Mills was a textile manufacturing company located in New Bedford, Massachusetts, a port which was known as a center of the whaling industry. The company was named after Wamsutta, the son of a Native American chief who negotiated an early alliance with the English settlers of the Plymouth Colony in the 17th century. Wamsutta Company's textile mill was founded by Thomas Bennett, Jr. on the banks of the Acushnet River in 1846 and opened in 1848. It was the first of many textile mills that gradually came to overtake whaling as the principal employer in New Bedford. Other mills in the area soon sprang up. By the 1870s, cotton textile manufacture was more important to the local economy than whaling. Wamsutta Mills became well known for producing fine quality shirtings, sheetings and other fine cotton products. The Wamsutta brand continues to this day.

    In modern times, Wamsutta is a brand name of Springs Global US, Inc., a textile conglomerate headquartered in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

    I'm guessing the pillow case probably came from Bed Bath and Beyond, but there are a lot of them on Long Island. No telling where they might have been purchased really. But it definitely came from someone's home. I'd bet the farm on that.

    More on the Wamsutta Brand. The company was purchased by Springs.

    Springs was the largest industrial employer in South Carolina[SUP][10][/SUP] with $1.7 billion in sales in 1987 and 23,500 employees at 39 plants in six states plus Belgium, England and Japan. About 18,000 people worked at 24 plants in South Carolina.[SUP][11][/SUP]
    Springs was the largest employer in Chester County, South Carolina when on May 2, 1988, the company announced a $12 million plant in Fort Lawn to make comforters, draperies and other bedroom items. With 325 new jobs, the county would have 4000 people working for Springs. Already, Springs made bedspreads at the Riverlawn Plant in Fort Lawn.[SUP][11][/SUP]
    In August 1988, Springs announced that 200 jobs would be lost at its 93-year-old Lancaster complex. This would reduce the number of employees to 1300, down from 4500 in 1981. The number of fly shuttle looms was reduced during the same period from 7000 to 300.[SUP][12][/SUP]
    On October 20, 1988, Springs announced plans to spend $370 million over the next two years on modernization, as well as closing or selling some plants. This would include the Home Furnishings and Industrial Fabrics groups. Already, the White Plant in Fort Mill and the Katherine Plant in Chester were getting $20 million in improvements each, while in Lancaster, 200 jobs were being dropped as a weaving process was ended, and 179 lost their jobs in Anderson, South Carolina with the closing of the Lyons Plant.[SUP][10][/SUP]
    In 1989, Springs opened the Close Plant in Fort Mill.[SUP][6][/SUP]
    [h=2]Merger with Coteminas[edit][/h]Springs began its association with Brazil-based Coteminas in 2001, when the Close family took the company private. That year, Springs and Coteminas began a "trategic long-term alliance."[SUP][7][/SUP]
    In 2002, Springs bought the Beaulieu accent rug business including its Dalton, Georgia and Stratford, Ontario operations, and the Burlington Industries window treatment and bedding businesses.[SUP][7][/SUP]
    In 2003, 500 workers lost their jobs when the White Plant and the Lancaster Plant closed, and 130 more Grace Plant workers also were let go.[SUP][3][/SUP]
    In 2004, Springs closed the 1920s Lyman, South Carolina and 1960s Anderson, South Carolina plants acquired in 1985.[SUP][6][/SUP]
    On January 1, 2005, global textile quotas ended, allowing countries where employers paid their workers less than U.S. companies to ship more products.[SUP][7][/SUP]
    Early in the year, the Elliott Plant in Fort Lawn closed and 450 were laid off at the Grace Plant.[SUP][6][/SUP]
    In October 2005, Springs announced its home furnishings operations would merge with Coteminas, in an effort to lower costs, stay competitive and keep as many jobs as possible. Springs still had around 1000 workers at two Chester County plants. With manufacturing at 13 plants in Brazil and Argentina, Springs could have sheets and towels in stores faster than if production was done in China. Springs and Coteminas would each own half of Springs Global, and Springs would continue to make Springmaid and Wamsutta products.[SUP][13][/SUP]
    After spending $10 million improving the Katherine Plant in 2005, Springs announced machinery from there would be moved to South America, and 700 would lose their jobs by February 2007. Also, the Frances Plant in Fort Lawn was closing in December 2006, with 60 jobs lost.[SUP][7][/SUP]
    On June 27, 2007 Springs said that after 120 years, Springs would end manufacturing in South Carolina with the closing of its Grace and Close plants. The state would still have about 700 employees, most of them at distribution centers in Lancaster and Fort Lawn, and at the Fort Mill offices.[SUP][6]

    There are a lot of Bed Bath and Beyond Stores today but I don't remember there being so many around in 1997, especially on Long Island.
