Queens, New York
The headless body of a young boy, between the ages of 3 and 5, is found wrapped in a Disney blanket and stuffed in a duffle bag
The child was named John Valentine Hope as he was found near Valentine’s Day. Upon examination, it was determined he had been murdered but the manner of death was not established. Additionally, the boy was likely not decapitated but his head separated from his body by either fish or decomposition.
His death remains a mystery, though he has been ceremoniously adopted by the Children of Hope organization and given a funeral.
