OPELIKA, Ala. (WRBL) – A reward is being offered in the case of a murdered child in Opelika. CrimeStoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the identity of the little girl who has come to be known as Opelika Baby Jane Doe.

Partial skeletal remains belonging to the little girl were found at a trailer park on Hurst Street in Opelika on Jan. 28, 2012.

According to officials, the little girl was African American and between the ages of four and seven years old at the time of her death.

Officials believe she died some time between 2010 and 2011, with a focus on the time frame of Summer or Fall in 2011.

The girl had medium length black hair styled in corn rolls. Her height, weight, and eye color cannot be determined due to the state of her remains when they discovered.

During her life, the girl likely suffered abused and malnourished, according to an anthropological assessment of her bones.

A long-sleeve pink shirt with heart buttons and small ruffles near the neckline was recovered near the little girl’s remains, but it is unknown if it belonged to the child.

According to officials, chemical isotope testing on her bones determined the girl was born and raised in Alabama or one of the surrounding southern states. Additionally, officials say investigation has revealed the girl possibly had ties to the area of Orlando, Fla.
