THE DETAILS SURROUNDING THE CRIME
An unidentified male child, nicknamed Beloved Doe, was discovered on March 13, 2003, in a dumpster belonging to an apartment complex in Houston, Texas. The child had been wrapped in a gray afghan-style blanket and placed in a red and white checkered bag (pictured below). He was wearing a diaper with a design of bears on the front.
A medical examination on the body indicates the child died of starvation. Aside from acute malnutrition, no other signs of abuse or injuries were found. The child may have received prior medical treatment at a hospital.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the identification of Beloved Doe, his parents, or caretaker.
Note: CrimeStoppers in Houston is offering an additional $5,000 for information!
