Little Miss Nobody
Little Miss Nobody was the name given posthumously to an unknown American female child and murder victim found in Congress, Yavapai County, Arizona on July 31, 1960.
Little Miss Nobody's partially buried body was found in Sand Wash Creek Bed on Old Alamo Road in Congress, Arizona on July 31, 1960. A local family searching for rocks reported finding the remains. The forensic pathologist performing the autopsy reported the remains were of a Caucasian female between the ages of 5 and 7, approximately three feet six inches to four feet five inches in height, and weighed fifty to sixty pounds at the time of death. X-rays taken during the pathological exam did not show any previous bone breaks or fractures. It was determined she had been dead for one to two weeks and had a full set of baby teeth. The report went on to say that because the girl's body was in an advanced state of decomposition, a positive visual identification was not possible. Records kept at the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, however, state the child's face was in a recognizable state. The victim's toes and fingernails had reportedly been painted a bright red color and her brown hair dyed auburn or reddish brown. The body was clothed in white shorts and a checkered blouse. Investigators found a pocket knife near the body.
