NYPD Launches New Push to Find Killer of "Baby Hope," Found in Cooler 22 Years Ago

NYPD are making a renewed push to find the killer of a toddler dubbed "Baby Hope," whose body was found inside a cooler dumped in a wooded area in Manhattan 22 years ago Tuesday.

Authorities are circulating new posters and an NYPD Crime Stoppers van is in Washington Heights, publicizing the $12,000 reward and and asking for anyone with information to call 1-800-577-TIPS.

The child, who was never identified, was believed to be 3 to 5 years old, and was found by construction workers on July 23, 1991 along the Henry Hudson Parkway and Dyckman Street.

She was never reported missing by family, and reports at the time said she had been starved and sexually abused. The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System database lists her as weighing 25 pounds and being 3 feet, 2 inches tall.

She was bound and her hair was in a ponytail with a yellow elastic.

Police say the cooler could have been placed there anytime between July 13 and July 22.
