Arizona's 'Little Miss Nobody' identified 62 years later
“Little Miss Nobody” finally has a name. The Yavapai County Sheriff’s office said Tuesday a little girl whose burned remains were found 62 years ago in a remote area of Arizona was 4-year-old Sharon Lee Gallegos of New Mexico.
Her partially buried remains were located in a wash July 31,1960.
Her age was then estimated at 3 to 6 years old.
The Prescott community in central-north Arizona paid for a funeral and the remains were exhumed in 2018 to take DNA samples.
The sheriff’s office and a Texas DNA company recently raised $4,000 for specialized testing to finally identify her.
