Burial Delayed For ‘Baby Doe’ Bella Bond

By Christina Hager, WBZ-TV  September 30, 2015 6:22 PM


BOSTON (CBS) – The burial plot has been picked, but Bella Bond won’t be laid to rest just yet.

New information in the murder investigation of the girl previously known only as “Baby Doe” has the medical examiner putting a hold on her body.

...A spokesperson for the district attorney says it’s because the cause of death is still in question.

snipped: He says it’s also because of new information developed after the arrest of Bella’s mother, Rachelle Bond, accused of helping dispose of the body, and boyfriend Michael McCarthy, accused of punching her to death.

IIRC, earlier news accounts said both defendants were pointing the finger at each other/blaming each other. It would seem that the examiners are trying to pinpoint "who is telling the truth" through further testing and analysis since it says "for the prosecutors to build their case".

IMO, they are both equally responsible and should pay accordingly.

Sweet Bella.

By Eliott C. McLaughlin and AnneClaire Stapleton, CNN
Updated 2:59 PM ET, Tue October 20, 2015


(CNN)A Massachusetts judge Tuesday granted a defense motion asking that it be allowed to conduct a second autopsy on 2-year-old Bella Bond before the girl's mother and her boyfriend appear at a probable cause hearing next month.

Judge Lisa Grant also approved the prosecution's request that Rachelle Bond continue to be held on $1 million bail in what became known as the "Baby Doe" case, while her boyfriend, Michael McCarthy, remains ineligible for bail. The probable cause hearing is scheduled for November 19.

Report: DCF oversight of Bond family lacking

Posted: Thursday, October 29, 2015 3:00 am

By Colin A. Young STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE
 

BOSTON — The Department of Children and Families ended its involvement with Bella Bond, the toddler whose dead body was found in a trash bag on Deer Island in June, too quickly and should have conducted more thorough reviews of her welfare, the Office of the Child Advocate reported yesterday.
 
In 2012 and 2013, DCF opened cases related to neglect, provided services to the child’s mother, Rachelle Bond, and then closed the cases after 45-day assessment periods. But Maria Mossaides, the state child advocate, said yesterday that the fact that DCF had previously removed two children from Rachelle Bond’s custody should have prompted a higher level of response in 2012 and 2013.

Additionally, Rachelle Bond was struggling with the same issues that led to her losing custody of two other children, the child advocate’s report said, and DCF did not fully assess her ability to care for Bella despite being aware that she had twice lost parental rights.

“It is clear that the Department of Children and Families should have not closed the case in 2013,” Mossaides said. “The decision to close was based on insufficient, then-current information.”

Evidence released in Bella slaying

Marie Szaniszlo Saturday, February 27, 2016

Prosecutors in the case against the Dorchester woman accused of helping her boyfriend dump her toddler’s body in the water off South Boston after he allegedly killed her have given the woman’s attorney a trove of materials they may use at her Dec. 1 trial, including two underwater photographs and a photograph of a weight.

Rachelle Bond and Michael P. McCarthy are accused of using weights identical to ones found at the Quincy plumbing business McCarthy’s father owns when they allegedly dumped 2-year-old Bella Bond’s body in the water.

Baby Bella Bond/Doe


'She was a demon': Heroin-addict ex-boyfriend of Baby Doe's mother was 'obsessed with the occult, sensed evil spirits in their apartment and said it was the toddler's time to die'

After her June 25, the girl's mother says he told her: 'She just died. It was her time. She was a demon,' CNN reported from the trial.

Rachelle Bond helped him dispose of her daughter's body. She pleaded guilty to accessory after the fact in February.

Michael McCarthy, Bella's heroin addict ex-boyfriend, is accused of murdering her. He is pictured at his Boston murder trial last week +9

Michael McCarthy, Bella's heroin addict ex-boyfriend, is accused of murdering her. He is pictured at his Boston murder trial last week

She claims she was so afraid of the man that she went along with what he was saying and that her drug addiction also stopped her from speaking out.

McArthy denies killing the toddler, claiming it was all her mother.

His lawyers told a court on Tuesday: 'He had nothing to do with her tragic death. Michael did not even know that Bella was dead until the police who arrested him told him.

'The prosecution's case rests entirely upon the uncorroborated and unbelievable testimony from Rachelle Bond.'

They flipped the prosecutors' claims, insisting that it was in fact Bond who was obsessed with evil and satanism.

McArthy's lawyers cited a diary she kept to support their argument, telling how she'd used it to document her outlandish beliefs that world leaders rape and kill 'babies' and 'drink their blood'. ..."

Mother of murdered Baby Doe testifies that her heroin addict ex-boyfriend was a follower of Alex Jones and believed government workers were 'shape-shifters' before he 'killed her'

".... Rachelle Bond, 41, told a courtroom how Michael McCarthy was an avid follower of pro-Trump radio host Alex Jones and that he had become obsessed with conspiracy theories and the occult when he killed two-year-old Bella in June 2015.

McCarthy, 37, thought government workers were 'shape-shifters', she said and that he was pushing his 'off the wall' beliefs on to her. ...."

Mom's boyfriend is found guilty of murdering two-year-old 'Baby Doe' whose body washed up in a trash bag in Boston and went unidentified for weeks

"....A Massachusetts man has been found guilty of second-degree murder in the killing two-year-old Bella Bond, who was nicknamed 'Baby Doe' after her unidentified body washed up on a beach in the Boston area. ...."

".....Prosecutors had charged the heroin addicted McCarthy with first-degree murder, but the judge said jurors could also consider two lesser charges — second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter.

Under a second-degree murder conviction, a person is eligible for parole after serving 15 years in prison.

The judge recessed after the verdict was read to see if there were any objections to McCarthy also being sentenced Monday.




Bond pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact for helping McCarthy dispose of the girl's body.

Under a plea deal with prosecutors, Bond is expected to be released after McCarthy's trial, serving less than two years in jail...."

WOW. True miscarriage of justice.
Mother so drugged up and irresponsible she has let her child be repeatedly tortured and then brutally murdered.

Judge LETS the mother skate!!!!



Baby Doe's mother smiles in court as she is sentenced to time served and probation for helping her ex-boyfriend dispose of her two-year-old daughter's battered body

"..... The mother was seen smiling in court as the sentence - commanding her to go to a residential substance abuse treatment facility for heroin addiction - was passed.
She has spent the last two years in jail for her part in her daughter's killing, which saw the child going unidentified for weeks.

Last month Bond's ex-boyfriend, Michael McCarthy, was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison in Bella's killing.

As part of her plea agreement, Bond testified against McCarthy at his trial, telling jurors she walked into a bedroom and saw the heroin addict punching her daughter hard in the abdomen.

She said she did not report her daughter's death to police because McCarthy threatened to kill her. ..."
