Mass. Detectives Receive National Honor For Solving ‘Baby Doe’ Case

BOSTON (CBS) — Two Massachusetts State Police detectives received a national award for identifying 2-year-old Bella Bond and the suspects accused of killing her.

Lieutenant Robert Murphy and Trooper Daniel Herman were honored at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s 2016 Heroes’ Awards in Washington, DC, Thursday night.

In September 2015, a tipster helped crack the case. Bella’s mother Rachelle Bond and Bond’s boyfriend Michael McCarthy have been charged in connection with her death.
