Police Develop Facial Reconstruction to Help ID Body Found In Pa. Woods

PHILADELPHIA (CBS)— The Pennsylvania State Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a woman whose remains were found in a wooded area back in January.

Police say hikers were walking in a wooded area along a trail in Ridley Creek State Park, Pennsylvania when they found the body of a woman fully clothed in cold weather attire.

Investigators believe the remains are that of a 25-40 year old white female, approximately 5’3” to 5’10” tall.

Numerous items were discovered near her body, including a green plaid blanket, black cloth gloves,  a black Pacific Trail Jacket size large, Gloria Vanderbilt blue jeans, three rings (a gold Irish Claddagh ring, a gold initial ring bearing the initial “C”, and a gold ring with the engraved initials of “C. A. or C.R.” on the interior), two backpacks (navy blue canvas bag, and a Route 66 black back pack), two pairs of shoes (size “9” black Totes boots, and size “9” grey and purple sketchers running shoes), and two empty pill bottles.  She is believed to have died sometime in 2014.

State police have developed a facial reconstruction of the unidentified woman to aid in their investigation.

Anyone with any information is asked to call The Pennsylvania State Police.
