Washtenaw County Sheriff need help identifying homicide victim from 1985

(WXYZ) - The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office along with the Medical Examiner's Office are asking for your help identifying an unknown homicide victim from 1985.

With the help of technology recently available, the Michigan State Police have created 3D images which represent how the victim may have appeared at the time of her death.

In January of 1985, deputies located the remains of the female victim in Superior Township. She was buried in a shallow grave near the Woolman Oval Apartments, which were abandoned in the 1970s.

The body was exhumed and examined. She's believed to have been a black female between 15 and 25 years old. She was about 5' tall, and weighed about 115 pounds. She was dressed for cold weather and likely went missing sometime in 1984.

Anyone who believes they may have information about who this woman is, please call the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office at 734-973-7711 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP.
