FORT WORTH -- Skeletal remains found last month in a shallow grave in west Fort Worth are now believed to be of a Hispanic woman who likely died this past fall.

Though investigators are still trying to identify the woman, further examination of the remains has revealed that she had a dental bridge.

A crew working in a wooded area north of the 7300 block of Calmont Avenue called police March 20 after finding a human skull on the ground.

A search of the area uncovered a shallow grave containing more human remains, police said.

Though a cause and manner of death have not been determined, the case is being investigated as a homicide.

On Monday, the police department released a new profile of the suspected victim based on a further examination of the bones.

The victim is believed to be a small-framed Hispanic woman, 4-feet-9-inches to 5-feet-4-inches tall and between the ages of 21 and 35. She had layered long, wavy brown hair up to 13-inches long, police say.

Investigators believe the woman died between October and early this year, but likely in the fall.

She had a fixed dental bridge that is composed of porcelain and non-precious metal, police say.

Anyone with information about the woman's identity is asked to call homicide Detective Kyle Sullivan at 817-392-4340.
