This is an inappropriate graphic for the website. Have you become so de-sensitized to violence in the media that you can't understand this is disturbing to many paople?

I think it was more of a desperate request from the sheriff's department. How could anyone identify the child unless they see what she looks like?

How sad, she's just a baby, may she rest in peace.

Death IS disturbing! Too many now-a-days think that death is when you "loss the game and have to hit the re-start button".

Exactly.

Hopefully someone will know who she is. After this much time though, it'll be a miracle if this ever gets solved.

What is disturbing is that to the world this person never existed. She had two parents, possibly bothers and sisters.

Certainly she was not kept hidden for 13 to 19 years. It is sad that the world has not changed much in 30 years.

If it was that important to get out, there should be a link to the photo with a warning. There is no need to see that image. TV news still follows a precedent of warning viewers before graphic images are shown, the same should be done on the web.

If you really think you know who she is I hope you contact the Livonia sheriffs!

I'm curious as to why the Livingston County Sheriff hasn't added this case to the NaMus (National Missing and Unidentified System).

Fact: Sue means the Livingston County Sheriffs. Just another case where the educational system in Wayne County has failed us.

Ohh so she missed the FIRST FIVE WORDS of the story..... we can't expect her to read everything can we.

all i can say is its a good thing the writer of the story didnt make that mistake because sue would NEVER let them get away with it.
