Precious Doe Case Solved!

If you've followed some of the forensics TV shows, you might have remembered the case of Precious Doe -- they named her that because they didn't know her name. She was a child of less than four years old, whose body was discovered in woods near Kansas City in 2001. Authorities have tried for years to identify her body because they know that once you identify the body, you take a huge step toward finding the killer. They used reconstructive techniques to make models of what she might look like, and then used all the media at their disposal to get the photos out there.

Of all the cases I've seen on TV, this one is one of the saddest I remembered watching. It was bad enough that she was a murdered child. Even worse, she was a murdered child without a name. No matter how hard authorities tried, no one came forth to identify the girl. At the same time, it showed the good side of people, too, as many people worked together to try to get that girl a name. An advertising company even donated billboards to the cause, and people put up a permanent memorial to her.

Now, not only has she been identified, but they have arrested her mother
and stepfather for the murder. :-( Allegedly, the !@#$ stepfather got high on
PCP and beat her to death. Even worse, it seems that they could have gotten medical
attention for her, but they didn't because there were warrants out for
them. Ugh.
