Houston police have released a composite sketch of a woman whose skeletal remains were found at 5005 Neches about 1:35 p.m on November 30, 2011, in hopes someone can formally identify her.
Based on a report from the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, the woman is described as black, anywhere from 35 to 55 years old, and between 5 feet 1 and 5 feet 7 inches tall. They were unable to determine how much she weighed. Her teeth were reportedly in poor condition. A cause of death has not yet been established. The sketch composite sketch and of a metal cross found in the area of her body are attached to this news release.
The woman’s partial skeletal remains were found by a crew hired to clean vegetation from a vacant lot near the interchange of the Eastex Freeway (North U.S. Highway 59) and the 610 North Loop. The remains were scattered and remnants of clothing nearby appeared to have been in the lot for several months. Officials say some of the bone fragments showed some signs of having been burned.
In addition, a silver metal cross (pictured) with the Lord’s Prayer in Spanish on it was found in the area of the remains.
Anyone with information on the possible identify of the woman is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
A homicide investigator will be available to answer questions in the case in the Media Briefing Room on the first floor of HPD Headquarters at 1200 Travis at 2 p.m. today.
