Text, phone hotlines added to seek tips on 'Baby Doe'


BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts authorities have added an anonymous text-a-tip-line and telephone hotline to help identify a young girl whose remains were found almost three weeks ago in a trash bag on a Boston Harbor beach.

The Text-A-Tip number is 67283. People with information are instructed to use the keyword GIRL followed by the tip. The tip is relayed anonymously to the state police, who won't have the sender's number.

The direct case hotline is 617-396-5655.

Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley, State Police Superintendent Col. Richard McKeon and Winthrop Police Chief Terence Delehanty announced the measures Wednesday.

Police have been trying to identify the child since June 25, when a woman walking her dog on Deer Island found the remains. The girl is believed to have been around 4 years old, with long brown hair and brown eyes.
