Identity of "Little Miss Nobody" to be announced Tuesday
Yavapai County sheriff’s officials believe they now know the name of a little girl whose burned remains were found in a remote desert area nearly 62 years ago.
Officials are planning to give a full update and overview of the investigation Tuesday at Yavapai Community College in Prescott. Dubbed “Little Miss Nobody,” the girl’s partially buried remains were located in a wash on July 31, 1960.
Investigators believed the girl was between 3 and 6 years old and her remains were buried about a week or two before being discovered.
Authorities say the case was ruled a homicide. The girl's remains were exhumed in 2018 so DNA samples could be taken.
