Boston: Cardinal O’Malley Makes Offer to Bury Baby Doe

The archbishop of Boston is among at least 10 people offering to take the remains of a little girl who was found dead inside a trash bag and became known as Baby Doe and give her a proper burial.

Prosecutors confirm Cardinal Sean O’Malley was one of the people who offered.

Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley says Baby Doe was just shy of 3 years old when her body was found in June on Deer Island in Winthrop by a woman walking a dog. He said Friday the girl’s name was Bella Bond and she was murdered.

Baby Doe’s mother is under arrest on a charge of accessory to murder after the fact. The mother’s boyfriend has been charged with murder. The mother is in custody. Her boyfriend is in a hospital for drug treatment.

The Massachusetts House speaker says the two are blaming each other for the death.

Bella came to be known as Baby Doe during an investigation that included a massive social media campaign to learn her identity.
