NEW YORK (AP) Detectives solved the decades-old mystery of "Baby Hope," a little girl whose body was discovered inside a picnic cooler beside a Manhattan highway in 1991, and arrested a relative of the child Saturday after he admitted he sexually assaulted and smothered her, police said.
Conrado Juarez, 52, was arrested on a murder charge and was awaiting arraignment. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Juarez claimed he killed the girl at his sister's apartment and that she helped him dispose of the body. The sister has since died, police said. They were cousins of the little girl's father.
The girl's name, age and circumstances of her death were unknown for more than two decades. But earlier this week, police announced that a new tip and a DNA test had allowed them to finally identify the baby's mother, a dramatic turnaround in one of the city's more notorious cold cases.
On Saturday, they also revealed the girl's name: Anjelica Castillo, age 4.
The child's naked, malnourished corpse was discovered on July 23, 1991, beside the Henry Hudson Parkway by construction workers who smelled something rotten. Detectives thought she might have been suffocated but had few other clues as to what happened.
The case became an obsession for some investigators who nicknamed the girl "Baby Hope." Hundreds of people attended a funeral for the unknown girl in 1993. Her body was exhumed for DNA testing in 2007, and then again in 2011.
In July, detectives tried another round of publicity on the 22nd anniversary of the discovery. They canvassed the neighborhood where her body was found, hung fliers, circulated sketches of the girl and a photograph of the cooler and announced a $12,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
Former detective Jerry Giorgio, who had the case from 1991 until his retirement over the summer, said he remained confident the case could be solved. Assistant Chief Joseph Reznick, who also worked the case, said they never gave up.
"I think reflecting back on what we named this little girl, Baby Hope, I think it's the most accurate name we could have come up with," Reznick said.
Giorgio left the NYPD and went to the Manhattan district attorney's cold case squad, from which he retired this year. "I missed the tipster call by a couple of weeks, damn it," he said.
The tipster, who saw the recent news stories on the case, led police to Anjelica's sister, who told detectives she thought her sister had been killed. Police matched DNA from Anjelica to their mother. The mother, who was not identified, didn't have custody of Anjelica at the time of the girl's death she had been living with relatives on the father's side, including Balvina Juarez-Ramirez, police said.
Juarez-Ramirez is the sister of Juarez. Police closed in on the suspect and waited for him Friday outside a Manhattan restaurant where he worked as a dishwasher. He told them he noticed Anjelica while visiting the family apartment and killed her, police said.
"When she went motionless, he summoned his sister from another room," Kelly said.
Then, the sister got the blue cooler which still contained full cans of Coke. They took a livery cab from Queens to Manhattan where they dumped the cooler, then separated.
Her parents never reported her missing, though they had contact with the suspect. Juarez had never been considered a suspect before. Police refused to say whether he had previous arrests or had been accused in other sexual assaults.
Kelly called the arrest a superb case of detective work, and said he was proud of his officers.
"For me, it makes you proud to be a member of this organization they were unrelenting," he said.
The detectives assigned to the case were instrumental in organizing a burial in a Bronx cemetery for the girl in 1993. Hundreds attended the funeral; Reznick gave the eulogy. The girl was dressed in a white frock and buried in a white coffin.
The detectives paid for the girl's headstone that reads: "Because we care

Maggot toss has been a great success through the years, this year is no exception. The contest is bringing in a larger crowd now that women are tossing out the trash. All the money taken in is being given to local veterans.

NO. Maybe in a park with known gang activity .Extrapolate that individual is in a gang in gang attire.
Was targeted as a gang member. Therefore gang related. Not a fooking hate crime.Sorry issue

Read the article, boneheads, hispanic crimes are proportionate to their population. This means the cops are NOT racially profiling in Hazleton. What is so dam difficult about that?

There's more Latino sex offenders arrested than any other demographic. Especially among the illegal invaders.

Sad. Hazletown may have Hispanic immigrants but they come at a high cost. Most are earning low wage so they get lots of free without paying for their kids education or anything else. They are sucking off the system. Also crime is rampant. If you migrate somewhere you should be on your best behavior to show gratitude they have none. They intend to destroy instead. But more so the entire premise that these invaders revitalise a town is not true. The town as time goes by will be more of a town in Mexico. It will be in the states but no longer part of.except geographically. White flight is rampant in these places and the Latino business that is proclaimed as great only cater to Latinos. Whites will be mostly non existent. So the revitalization does whites no good. Unless you choose to live in a Latino community you will feel like an outsider and then move to where you feel American and your culture matters. I will say that no Hispanic country has a single town where whites from the states have taken over and pushed Latinos out. But here they do it nonstop.

Most are not immigrants. They are NY and NJ hoodrats that speak a bastardized version of Spanish with heavy use of bastardized English known as ebonics. They are typical American hoodrats masquerading as Hispanics. They cannot even fuhk right. They just do rape culture things like donkey punching and dirty Sanch. Ezes.
