Hopefully someone will be able to identify this girl, and there can be closure. Even if that happens, however, the implications of this rather disturbing quote will remain:

“If she looked like this in life, I think we can all agree she’s precious and she really deserves the dignity of a funeral and a burial and in her own name,” Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley told CNN on Thursday.

But what if she hadn’t been cute, Mr. Conley?
