Arizona authorities hoping to identify remains of girl known as ‘Little Miss Nobody’
PHOENIX — An Arizona sheriff’s office is working in hopes of finally identifying the remains of a young girl who was found 60 years ago and dubbed “Little Miss Nobody.”
The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is looking to raise $4,000 to have the girl’s DNA tested in tandem with Othram Inc., a private laboratory.
YCSO has committed $1,000 to the cause, which is hoping to give closure and an identity to the girl six decades after her death.
“Little Miss Nobody” was found at Sand Wash Creek in Congress on July 31, 1960.
Her remains had been burned a week or two prior to her discovery and there was no further trauma, investigators said, making her cause of death difficult to determine.
The girl was estimated to be between 3 and 6 years old when found.
“Little Miss Nobody” was buried in 1960 and the case remained stagnant until 2018, when her body was exhumed for DNA testing.
Donations can be made on the DNASolves page for “Little Miss Nobody.”
Anyone with information on the case should contact cold case investigator John Shannon at 928-777-7293 or leave a tip anonymously by calling Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 and reference agency case #1960 or NamUs UPID10741.
