Police on Tuesday released computerized images of an unidentified woman whose remains were found in 2015.
Authorities released the images in hopes that someone would recognize the woman, whose remains were found Aug. 29, 2015, in the 700 block of Mitchell Road.
A human skull found at the scene was sent to a forensic artist with the Texas Rangers and the artist created the images.
Detectives say they believe the woman was a homicide victim whose remains had been at the location for at least five years. The victim may have disappeared between 1998 and 2011, and detectives have DNA and dental evidence.
Never miss a local story.
In 2016, authorities returned to the scene in search of more evidence, but nothing was found.
A year ago, the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office commissioned forensic artist Suzanne Baldon of Waco to create a clay bust based on the skull of the victim
The medical examiner’s office has used clay re-creations in about 10 cases during the past 20 years, and of those, four people were identified, authorities said.
Officials at the medical examiner’s office provided a biological profile of the victim that includes these details: She was a black female between the ages of 35 and 50; and she is believed to have been between 5 feet, 2 inches tall and 5 feet 10 inches. She possibly had a healed fracture of the upper part of the breastbone.
