For those of you who participated in the Who Done IT Wednesday Super Sleuth Challenge, today is the day to find out if you were right.
This is the true story of a crime that happened in Philadelphia where a baby was kidnapped from a house fire. They found her several years later, having been raised only a few blocks away. What a crazy twist!
When the original house fire happened, they found no remains of the baby, but a few bones. Investigators believed lack of more remains was due to the heat of the fire. Still, the mother did not believe her child was dead.
Attending a birthday party six years later the mother was astounded by how much the six year old girl looked like her as a child. Telling the girl she had bubble gum in her hair, the mother was able to take a hair sample which she had tested for DNA.
With the help of the police and other officials, they placed the daughter in protective custody until the matter could be resolved. When the results came in the mother thanked the police profusely for the help, being able to say little more overwhelmed with emotion.
The mother and daughter were finally reunited. CNN covered this amazing story. To read more about this story, click here.
