Now that “Baby Doe” has been identified as Bella Bond, more information is being released in the mystery surrounding her tragic death. Police have reportedly taken the young girl’s mother Rachelle and her mother’s boyfriend Michael, in for questioning, according to NBC News.
The police reportedly acted on a tip from a family member of Bella, according to The Daily Beast. The outlet also adds that the family member noticed Bella was missing and that her mother had been saying that the toddler had been taken away by social services.
A neighbor, Siomy Torres, told the Boston Globe that “the woman’s most recent boyfriend had arrived at around the same time the child disappeared.”
As of now, Rachelle and her boyfriend are not under arrest. As for the cause of Bella’s death, a spokesman for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office stated the “investigation remains very active.”
Who Is Bella Bond?
Rachelle’s Facebook shows tons of photos of sweet little Bella, including a handful of videos.
The break occured after a search warrant was executed at a Maxwell Street home in Boston, according to ABC News. Currently, the identity of the girl has not yet been officially released, pending positive identification from the State Medical Examiner.
In June, Bella was found in a trash bag by a woman walking her dog on Deer Island. She was found wearing polka dot leggings, along with a zebra print fleece blanket.
