Baby Jane Doe was found on June 25, 2015, on the western shore of Deer Island and police turned to social media to help find out who her identity. She has a name that means beauty and her name is Bella Neveah Amoroso Bond, but she was murdered by those she loved. According to, Police have arrested her and her mother’s boyfriend Michael McCarthy 35 for murder and her mother Rachelle Bond 40 for accessory after the fact.

Baby Bella’s biological father never met her, yet Joseph Amoroso is defending the mother. He believes that the mother Rachelle would have never harmed Bella purposely, but she did nothing to protect her daughter when her boyfriend beat the life out of Bella. According to The Examiner, she had a month while the poor lifeless body of Bella Bond sat in her mother’s refrigerator to turn him in to police. Rachelle helped McCarthy cover up the murder of her baby girl and she helped move the body.

According to The Examiner, Rachelle has a criminal record with the law for possession of heroin and prostitution, as well as a history with Department of Children and Families (DCF). The mother Rachelle had two other children that were permanently placed in different homes and she lost her parental rights to these children. In addition, DCF had contact with Bella as an infant and her mother Rachelle in 2012 and 2013, but the cased was quickly closed and DCF has had no contact since.

According to the The Inquisitr, Bella was beat to death, because she was supposedly a child of Satan and she was possessed. Bella’s was 2 ½ years old and short life was full of misery, while living with a drug addicted mother and her mother’s boyfriend who had drug or mental problems. However, both suspects are pointing there finger at each other, but Bella’s mother says that McCarthy punched her in the stomach until she was lifeless.

According to The Inquisitr, the mother told everyone that DCF took her sometime in June, in order to cover up what they had done to this beautiful baby girl. Bella had a right to feel safe in her own home, but instead she was abused and beaten to death by someone she loved. She should have been protected by her mother, yet she did nothing to stop the abuse or the child’s violent death. Rachelle lied to everyone about where Bella was and at anytime, she could have called the police to tell the truth but she did not.
