The Mexican authorities have released this digital portrait of the baby girl who was found dead under a bridge having been beaten and sexually abused as they look to identify her family.
The tot, named the ‘Baby of Aragon’, was found under the bridge on Zapatas Avenue in the Valle de Aragon area of the city of Nezahualcoyotl in the central Mexican state of Mexico by an unnamed man who then called the police on 28th June.
Local news outlet Infobae report forensic analysis of her body showed she had been sexually abused and had suffered a traumatic brain injury.
The tot also had injuries to her knees and thorax and had seemingly suffered serious physical abuse known as ‘battered-child syndrome’.
The authorities are working to identify the girl and have described her as between six and 24 months old, 62 centimetres (2 feet), with white skin, a round face, flat nose, coffee brown eyes, and straight, light-coloured hair.
The authorities have released the digital portrait of the girl to help identify her and have offered 300,000 MXN (10,575 GBP) as a reward for anyone who can help identify the baby or those responsible for her death.
Bryan Carlos LeBaron Johns, a member of the American-Mexican LeBaron family who were attacked in November 2019 in Sonora state, leaving six children and three women dead, also offered a reward of 100,000 MXN (3,533 GBP) for information to help identify the girl.
