12.27.2023

In today’s episode of Law and Disorder, we are going to discuss the case of “Baby Doe” who was discovered on June 15, 2015 on the shore of Deer Island, outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Baby Doe was ultimately identified as two-year-old Bella Bond, but until she was identified, it was the practice of Forensic Palynology that created the first real break in her case. This episode is Part 2 of our look into Forensic Palynology.

Part 1 goes in depth about Forensic Palynology, if you aren’t already familiar it.

Warning: this episode discusses the death and murder of a two-year-old child and may be triggering to some listeners.
