More than two decades after her murder, Baby Hope's real name now appears on her tombstone.

An official unveiling will be held Friday at St. Raymond's Cemetery.

The child's name, Anjelica, was first posted on the gravesite, written on a piece of paper by police officers.

Her identity was only revealed on October 8 after DNA testing identified her mother.

Days later, a cousin, Conrado Juarez was arrested and charged with sexual abuse and murder.

Baby Hope, as she was known, was found dead in 1991.

The 4-year-old was found stuffed in a cooler alongside a highway in Manhattan.
