The Kentucky State Police (KSP) investigate criminal activity across the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky, and, in many instances, the information provided by individual citizens allows law enforcement officials to make important breakthroughs in difficult cases.
With this in mind, members of the KSP Post 3 in Bowling Green, KY are requesting help from the public in identifying an unknown white female (see approximate clay reconstruction of the female to the right).
Though located near Interstate 65 in Simpson County, KY on October 9th, 2011, investigators believe that the female’s death may have occurred any time throughout the two months prior (August 1st, 2001 – October 1st, 2001). Further analysis of the body revealed that the female was approximately 25-35 years old and around 5’ 6” – 5’ 9” in height.
Other characteristics specific to the victim that may help to indentify her identity are as follows: light reddish-brown hair approximately 12-14 inches long; a healed fracture in the upper right arm near the shoulder; the “outline” tattoo of a rose on the left breast; and many missing or severely decayed teeth.
Additionally, KSP investigators also recovered two rings believed to belong to the female. One ring is a gold band similar to a wedding ring while the other is silver with a painted enamel blue background with flowers and leaves (see photos attached below). Each of the photos displaying the rings was made available/uploaded via the KSP officials on January 13th, 2011.
A cause of death for the female is currently unreleased via the official KSP report.
NOTE: Created by State Forensic Anthropologist Dr. Emily Craig, the three-dimensional facial reconstruction seen in the main photo is based solely on features found on the female’s skull. The recreation is not meant to represent a portrait of the female; it is simply based around scientific guidelines and can only suggest the shape/proportions of the female’s face.
