NEW YORK, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- New York, the city's leading neighborhood news source, congratulates its Criminal Justice Editor and "On the Inside" Columnist Murray Weiss for winning a top New York Press Club Award for his reporting on the Baby Hope murder investigation. It's his third Press Club award since joining four years ago.

Weiss was the first to report that the NYPD had cracked the " Baby Hope" murder case, which had been unsolved since 1991 when an unidentified 4-year-old girl was found dead in a cooler in Washington Heights, by identifying the child's mother. He also broke the story when the prime suspect, the girl's cousin, was arrested.

His coverage not only chronicled how police finally solved the 22-year-old murder, but also the emotional aspects of the case, from the toll it took on the detective who first tried to solve it to the joy of police and residents when Anjelica Castillo's name replaced Baby Hope on her headstone.

"Weiss has been following the Baby Hope case since it happened, and kept tabs on the NYPD's renewed investigation into the unsolved murder last year," said Michael. P. Ventura, managing editor, New York. "We're proud that his outstanding reporting was recognized with a New York Press Club award."
