Police have released composite photos of the girl as well as pics of the kind of bag she was found in and the clothes she was wearing in the hopes that someone can identify the girl. She is described as African-American, anywhere from 8-13 years old approximately 4’5 and weighed about 55 pounds. Police say there was no visible trauma to the body and are working with local agencies to try to find out who she was.
“It is a suspicious-death investigation. There were no obvious signs of trauma,” sheriff’s homicide Lt. Scott Hoglund told the Los Angeles Times. “We don’t have any idea who this child is.”
Sadly, she was found in a top that read Future Princess, but someone took away that possibility.
