The girl is believed to have been between 3 and 6 years old when she died.
She was found by a teacher in Sand Creek Wash in July 1960 and her death was ruled a homicide after a set of adult shoe prints were found near the site.
Police said she may have been dead for two weeks and her body was burned.
The girl’s remains were exhumed in 2018 for DNA samples.
The case made little progress until investigators raised $4,000 (£3,000) to pay for the new cutting-edge technology used.
Dr David Fruchtman, an expert in forensic science, told Fox News: “There have been incredible advances that have allowed forensic technicians to extract DNA from bones and teeth that are more likely to be found. on very old cases.
“You know, this little girl is somebody’s daughter, somebody’s sister.
“This little girl means a lot to someone and it’s amazing to see this technology used in this way to close and answer these questions from the back.”
