Man indicted in 'Baby

Sierra Club endorses

Hope' New York cold case Lumm for second ward

I

52-year-old cousin
of victim charged
by state's grand
jury on Tuesday
NEW YORK (AP) - A man
accused of killing his 4-year-old
cousin, known for two decades
only as "Baby Hope," was indict-
ed Tuesday in one of the city's
most haunting cold cases, as his
lawyer continued to question a
police confession that sealed the
man's arrest.
Conrado Juarez, a 52-year-old
kitchen worker, remained held
without bail and wasn't in court
as prosecutors said a grand jury
decided there was enough evi-
dence to continue charging him
in the girl's death. His lawyer
had decided Juarez didn't need
to be at the brief proceeding.
Manhattan Assistant District

Attorney Melissa Mourges didn't
disclose the specific charge
or charges, which is typical in
Manhattan at this stage of the
prosecution.
Juarez was arraigned earlier
this month on a charge of mur-
der, one of the few offenses with
no statute of limitations in New
York state.
The child's body was found
in 1991 in a cooler alongside a
Manhattan highway. Juarez
would have been about 30 at
the time. Afterward, detectives
nicknamed the then-unidenti-
fied child "Baby Hope," helped
arrange her burial and paid for
her headstone.
Police marked the 22nd
anniversary of the discovery
of her body by putting up fli-
ers and announcing a $12,000
reward for information. A tip
then finally led investigators
to her name - Anjelica Castillo
- and to Juarez's arrest this

month.
Police and prosecutors say
Juarez confessed to sexually
abusing and suffocating Anjeli-
ca. At the time, the girl was liv-
ing with his sister. The sister has
since died.
Juarez later told newspapers
that the girl died accidentally
and that he only helped his sis-
ter dispose of her body. He said
detectives pressured him into
saying he killed her.
His lawyer, Michael Croce,
has underscored that Juarez's
statements to authorities came
after about 12 hours of interro-
gation and that prosecutors have
yet to disclose whether any DNA
or other physical evidence ties
him to the girl's death.
"I don't trust any statements
that were made, by any individu-
al, after being in custody for such
an extended period of time,"
Croce said after court Tuesday.
Juarez is due back in court

Environmental
group supports
candidate's parks
preservation work
By MATT JACKONEN
Daily News Reporter
After interviewing the three
candidates for the seat on City
Council, the Sierra Club, a well-
known national environmental
conservation group, announced
their support for independent
candidate and current Council-
member Jane Lumm (I-Ward 2).
James 'D'Amour, political
chair of the Sierra Club Huron
Valley Group, said in a statement
that Lumm's beliefs have clashed
with the club's in the past, but
her current work and record
make her a good choice for the
organization.
"TTrtrle rvrtoti

community has earned her our
continued endorsement, on the
issue of parklands protection in
particular," D'Amour said. "She
has been earnestly cooperative
and wanting to work with us
on all of our issues, from parks
protection, to the Pall-Gelman
plume, to alternative energy,
and shares our concerns on new
challenges such as the threat of
hydrofracking in the Ann Arbor
area."
The Sierra Club backed Lumm
in her 2011 campaign to rejoin
city council after giving up her
seat in 1998. The club chose not
to endorse her then because of
her opposition to some aspects of
their greenbelt work.
Lumm said she supported parts
of efforts to improve the green-
belt, but did notwholly agree with
their use of funds in the purchas-
es. Specifically, she did not want
Ann Arbor to have to fund pur-
chases made outside the city.
dT h b mh nP oa A-7A.xP

one of the reasons she garnered
the group's support this time
around was because of her sup-
port of conserving parks.
"Over the course of this recent
tenure, I sponsored a resolution
to place on the ballot a charter
amendment requiring voting
approval before parkland could
be permanently repurposed,"
Lumm said. "It didn't pass, but
I indicated that I intend to bring
thatback again. If I'm re-elected,
I think there will be sufficient
support on council."
Apart from park conservation,
Lumm said upkeep of the Huron
River and managing creek sheds
are other important environ-
mental issues facingthe city.
Lumm joins the ranks of other
councilmembers backed by the
Sierra Club, including Mike
Anglin (D-Ward 5), Stephen
Kunselman (D-Ward 3) and
newly elected Jack Eaton (D-
Ward 4), who will take his seat

arrested for lying
about past conviction
CHICAGO (AP) - An Arab-
Americancommunity activist from
the Chicago suburbs was arrested
Tuesday on immigration charges
for allegedly lying about her con-
viction for a deadly bombing more
than 40 years ago in Israel.
RasmiehYousef Odeh, 66,spent
a decade in an Israeli prison for
her involvement in a 1969 attack
that involved bombs planted at a
crowded Jerusalem supermarket
and a British consulate, accord-
ing to a federal indictment. Only
one bomb - one of two placed at
the supermarket - exploded, kill-
ing the two people and wounding
several others. Israeli authorities
have saidthe attacks were planned
by the Popular Front for the Lib-

An Israeli military court sen-
tenced Odeh to life in prison in1970,
but she was released10 years later in
a prisoner exchange with the Popu-
lar Front. Israel released 76 prison-
ers in exchange for antIsraeli soldier
captured in Lebanon, according to
Odeh'sindictment.
But U.S. authorities accuse
Odeh of failing to mention her
conviction and time in prison on
immigration papers when she
came to the U.S. from Jordan
in 1995 and before she became a
naturalized U.S. citizen in 2004,
the indictment says.
Odeh was arrested Tuesday
morning at her home in Ever-
green Park, just southwest of
Chicago, according to prosecu-
tors. She moved to the Chicago
area shortly after gaining citi-
zenship in Detroit in 2004, said
Khaalid Walls, a spokesman for
U.S. Immigration and Customs

Her defense attorney James
Fennerty said Odeh has been a
close friend of his for years and he
never discussed her conviction in
Israel or the 10 years she spent in
prison.
"I never really asked her," he
said. "She's one of the nicest peo-
ple. ... She's always caring. She's
not a threat to anyone."
Odeh works as an associate
director at the Arab American
Action Network, a Chicago-area
nonprofit group that advocates
for new immigrants and tries to
combat anti-Muslim and anti-
Arab prejudice, according to its
director, Hatem Abudayyeh.
According to the network's
website, Odeh has a law degree
and has worked as a lawyer. It
says one of her focuses has been
working with domestic-violence
groups and addressing various
women's issues.
