NYPD Seeking Information in Decades-Old Cold Case

NEW YORK (AP) — More than two decades after the body of a child was found inside a cooler, the New York Police Department is seeking help identifying the girl dubbed "Baby Hope."

On Tuesday, the 22nd anniversary of the unsolved crime, police offered a $12,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.

The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/13Dce4b ) says police put up posters and handed out fliers with sketches of how the victim might have looked.

The cooler was found in Washington Heights, on an embankment off the Henry Hudson Parkway.

The girl was believed to be between 3 and 5 years old. Tests showed she was malnourished and had been sexually abused.

DNA testing has yielded no matches with databases of convicted felons or active missing person cases.
