Sister of 'Baby Hope': I wish I had met her

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - The sister of the slain girl long known as Baby Hope says she wishes she had a chance to know her sibling.

Laurencita Ramirez tells the New York Post she first found out she had a sister who was killed when she was 11 years old. She says it wasn't until last week that she heard about the "Baby Hope" case.

Police identified "Baby Hope" over the weekend as Anjelica Castillo. The 4-year-old was found stuffed in a cooler along a Manhattan highway in 1991.

Ramirez says her mother told her Anjelica would have looked just like her had she lived.

The 27-year-old Ramirez has the same nose, eyes and mouth as a police sketch of Angelica.

She says she never met Conrado Juarez, a relative charged with murder in her sister's death.
