Bella Bond Mourned on Anniversary of Body's Discovery

    Police in Massachusetts are asking residents to reflect on the death of a 2-year-old girl who was dubbed Baby Doe after her body washed up on a Boston Harbor island a year ago.

    State troopers are making the request as Saturday marks the anniversary of the discovery of Bella Bond. The girl was known for months as Baby Doe after her body was found in a trash bag by a dog walker and detectives sought her identity.

    A composite image of the girl was shared by millions on social media before she was identified in September.

    Police say the case has touched the agency.

    Bella's mother's boyfriend, Michael McCarthy, is charged with her murder. Her mother, Rachelle Bond, is charged with being an accessory. Both have pleaded not guilty.
