THE BRONX - Detectives involved in the Baby Hope case for more than two decades honored the little girl during a special ceremony unveiling her new headstone.
Baby Hope's real name was engraved onto the stone at Saint Raymond's Cemetery after she was finally identified last month as Anjelica Castillo.
A break in the case came when police arrested the girl's cousin, 52-year-old Conrado Juarez, who they say confessed to the killing. Castillo's body was found in a picnic cooler in Manhattan in 1991.

NYPD officers on the case split the cost of the original headstone with Crown Monuments in 1994. They say they picked angel wings for the top because they always thought of Castillo as an angel, and finding out her real name stems from the word angel was all too fitting.
