LUDINGTON, Mich. - Preliminary test results are in and the body of an unidentified Boston girl is not Katherine Phillips, also known as Baby Kate, from Mason County.
A four-year-old girl's body was found on a Boston beach in recent weeks. The girl has not yet been identified. When computer-generated photos of the girl became publicized earlier this week, some saw a resemblance to Baby Kate, who was four months old when she was last seen in Mason County in 2011. Since she would now be four years old, Mason County officials checked in with Massachusetts officials to compare DNA profiles.
Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole confirmed to FOX 17 the preliminary results Friday morning.
Final DNA test results are expected later today.
Sean Phillips is serving a minimum of ten years in prison for kidnapping Baby Kate. He has also been charged with her murder and is awaiting trial. Baby Kate's body has never been found.
