Family members and investigators gathered Friday at St. Raymond's Cemetery in the Bronx at a graveside dedication for Anjelica Castillo.
Detectives nicknamed the then-unidentified child "Baby Hope," helped arrange her burial and paid for her headstone. A placard had previously read "the identity of this little girl is unknown."
Anjelica's identity was revealed last month after police announced they'd arrested a 52-year-old cousin of the child in the cold-case killing. He's been arraigned on a murder charge but his lawyer has questioned a police confession that sealed his arrest.
The child's body was found in a cooler alongside a Manhattan highway.
