PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — “Little Miss Nobody” finally has a name. The Yavapai County Sheriff’s office said Tuesday a little girl whose burned remains were found more than 60 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. The sheriff’s office and a Texas DNA company recently raised $4,000 for specialized testing to finally identify her.
Authorities say they do not know who took and killed the child.
