Baby Hope is the nickname given to a baby girl found in the Arkansas River in 1996.

Case

The newborn had been born alive but died from drowning after being placed in the river. Her death was ruled a homicide.

Her case was initially believed to be related to Baby Faith, who was discovered four days later, but it was later revealed they were unrelated.

She was identified in March 2020. It is believed her mother is solely responsible for her murder and she committed suicide after being questioned by police in October 2019.
