‘humans Of New York’ Fascinate Photographer Brandon Stanton

Police detained him at a Manhattan restaurant on Friday, more than 22 years after the girl’s death, he said. Juarez was arrested on the murder charge and was awaiting arraignment, according to New York electronic court records. The girl, dubbed “Baby Hope” by investigators, was never reported missing and was only recently identified. Kelly named her as 4-year-old Anjelica Castillo. Her bound, asphyxiated body was discovered stuffed underneath cans of soda inside a blue-and-white cooler alongside the Henry Hudson Highway in northern Manhattan in July of 1991. She had been starved and sexually abused, police said. New York police announced on Tuesday they had identified the girl’s mother after following through on a tip they received over the summer. Her identity was confirmed through DNA testing and she was cooperating with the investigation, they said. After the girl’s death, members of the police department paid for her funeral and many worked for years in hopes of identifying her or her killer. “Today, NYPD investigators are giving young Anjelica her due justice,” Kelly said. Kelly said that Juarez had told investigators that he ran into Castillo in a hallway when he went to an apartment in Astoria shared by seven of his relatives.

But not for long. When it gets dark, he says, he’ll take out his camera he doesn’t use a flash and go looking for “pockets of light” or well-lit streets and see what he finds. The random anonymous people (and occasional dog) he snaps will join his voluminous collection, Humans of New York, an ongoing blog and now a book (St. Martin’s Press, on sale Tuesday).
