WINTHROP (CBS) – As hundreds of tips pour in to police during their search to identify the girl who was found dead last month on Deer Island, investigators are confident the toddler’s body is not that of a girl who went missing in West Virginia several years ago.
A young girl was found on Deer Island June 25 inside a trash bag.
Police released photographs of a zebra striped blanket she had with her and the black and white spotted yoga pants she was wearing when found.
Massachusetts State Police, however, said they confident the girl found on Deer Island is not Lunsford.
Overall, police said the rendering of the girl has been viewed more than 32 million times on social media, which has “shattered” any response they’ve previously had on Facebok.
