(Cleveland) - The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner and Cleveland Police say they have exhausted all their efforts to identify a woman whose decomposed body was found in a vacant lot on Cleveland's east side last October, so now, they need your help.
A DNA profile of the woman has now been determined, and that is available for comparison with potential matches. The Medical Examiner's office says even if you have not reported a family member as missing, they'd like to hear from you if this woman's description fits that of someone to whom you are related.
These sketches are based on what the woman is likely to have looked like when she was alive.
The woman was white, in her 30s or mid-40s, about 5'5". She had long dark hair. She was wearing Genuine Dickies brand gray boxer shorts or pajama bottoms, size medium. It's believed she was pregnant at least once.
She had a gunshot wound to the head, and was missing several upper and lower teeth, but her front teeth were intact. Forensic examiners could not determine her weight or eye color.
The body was found at 5605 Dibble Avenue, just east of East 55th Street.
Anyone with information about the woman should contact the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office at 216-721-5610, and press option 1.
