Composite released of girl found dead on Massachusetts island

WINTHROP, Mass. - Investigators have released a computer generated composite image of a girl found dead last week on Deer Island in Boston Harbor in an effort to identify her, reports CBS Boston.

The child, whose body was discovered by a woman walking her dog on the island's western shoreline June 25, is believed to have been about four years old, police say.

Police have received dozens of tips in the case, but none have helped determine who she is, reports the station. Investigators are reviewing reports of missing children and have notified police across the country. Her cause of death has not yet been determined.

"Who she is remains a mystery to us," Suffolk District Attorney Dan Conley said during a Thursday press conference.

The composite image was developed by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The girl was about 3½ feet tall and weighed just over 30 pounds, which was normal for her height, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office and Massachusetts State Police. She had brown eyes and brown hair that was about 14 inches long.

Investigators also released pictures of a pair of leggings and a zebra print blanket that were found inside a trash bag near where the girl was found, reports the station.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit at (617) 727-8817, Massachusetts State Police at (508) 820-2121 or Winthrop Police at (617) 539-5806.
