Investigators in Parker County have a skull, some bones and a pink waist tie from a bathrobe that they say may be connected to a woman who died a year or two ago.

Two hunters found what appears to be a human skull and bones in the 500 block of Ragle Road in Weatherford about 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

“The remains were scattered on the southwest corner of the property in about a 50-yard radius,” Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said in a news release.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office forensic anthropologist said the remains are likely that of a Hispanic female, between her late 20’s and late 30’s, and between 4 feet 6 and 5 feet 3 inches tall.

The condition of the remains indicate that the woman died about nine months to two years ago.

“The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office, Parker County Sheriff’s Office and Texas Rangers are jointly conducting the investigation as a murder case,” Fowler said. “We are searching every available database for a possible match to identify the victim.”

A piece of clothing located at the scene, which is believed to be a bright pink waist tie from a bathrobe, was located near the remains.

“We are hoping someone recognizes it in order to help us identify the victim,” Fowler said.

Anyone with information that can help identify the victim or any suspects involved in this case is encouraged to contact the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at (817) 594-8845, or the Parker County Crime Stoppers Hotline at (817) 599-5555.
