After months of investigation in the case of "Baby Doe," state police executed a search warrant in Dorchester last night.

In June, "Baby Doe" was found wrapped in a trash bag in Boston Harbor. More than 50 million people saw or shared the composite photo released by state police, in hopes of identifying the girl.

A spokesperson for Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley would only say the investigation, "remains very active." A spokesperson for State Police said, "the investigation is ongoing."
