New Developments In Skeletal Remains Found Last December In Montgomery

Do you recognize this woman? Do you recognize this woman?

Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- For the first time in department history, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is relying on a facial reconstruction specialist to help them solve a mystery.

"I can't tell you how close this bust is or how far away it is, but I do feel we're a mile ahead of what we had to go on," said Sheriff D.T. Marshall.

What investigators do know is the remains are those of a black female between 30 and 45 years old and she was somewhere between five foot one and five foot eight..

A highway crew discovered the skeleton about a week before Christmas last year. Since then investigators have gotten tips but nothing's panned out.

"We feel like she was murdered. We got some ideas but nothing we can elaborate on," said Marshall.

"She was wearing faded blue jeans and a Life South blood donor t-shirt. She was also wearing a High Point jacket with a fleur de lea pattern," said Investigator Mary Griffith.

Homicide investigators, meantime, hope the work of the specialist who spent two weeks building the bust with clay will provide clues they so desperately need; who was she and what happened. So close yet so far.

"We're kind of at a standstill. We need to have this person identified. Until then we don't have many leads to go by," Sheriff Marshall said.

Forensic investigators believe the woman's body may have been off Highway 331 near mile-marker 92 anywhere from two weeks to six months.

The specialist declined to be interviewed for this story saying the case is still unsolved. However, Ann Morland did tell us she used certain Forensic formulas to help craft the face.

Call the Secret Witness Line at 832-1200 if you have information that might help county investigators.
