Over 20 years ago, police discovered the body of a young child in a dirty cooler off Hudson Parkway in Washington Heights. Though her remains were already decomposing, test showed she had been starved, beaten, and sexually assaulted. No one ever reported her missing, her identity was never discovered, and her funeral was paid for by the cops investigating the case. Late Monday, it was reported that DNA evidence had led police to the girl's mother, and that an arrest has been made after the trail had been cold for over two decades.
