Private funeral set for 2-year-old girl dubbed Baby Doe

The Associated Press

BOSTON — A private funeral has been scheduled for the 2-year-old girl known for months as Baby Doe after her remains were found in a plastic bag on a Boston Harbor beach.

The service for Bella Bond will be held Nov. 28. Bella's father, Joseph Amoroso, has said the daughter whom he never met but talked to on the phone would be buried with her paternal great-grandmother at a Winthrop cemetery.

Prosecutors say Bella was killed. Her remains were found in June on Deer Island.

A composite image of the girl was shared by millions on social media before she was identified in September. Her body was released this week by the Massachusetts medical examiner.

Her mother's boyfriend, Michael McCarthy, has been charged with murder, while her mother, Rachelle Bond, is charged with being an accessory. Both pleaded not guilty.
