Police Hope Reconstruction Will Help Solve Murder

Police are hoping that a facial reconstruction will help solve a decade-old mystery of a woman who was found dead in New Brighton, Minn.

On Sept. 15, 2000, a badly decomposed body was found in a swampy area of Long Lake Regional Park on 1500 Old Highway 8 Northwest.

The woman was not clothed and police believe she was murdered, although a specific cause of death was not determined.

Investigators haven't been able to identify the body in the 10 years since.

An autopsy however determined that she is likely a white female around 35-45 years old. They think she had brown or reddish colored hair and was between 5'4" to 5'6" tall.

The exam also showed a healed fracture to the right middle finger, osteoarthritis in her back, and dental work that includes three root canals and removal of four wisdom teeth.

An upper left tooth was missing too. The medical examiner said it would have been visible when she smiled.

To help visualize what the woman may have looked like, a facial reconstruction was done to show some of the characteristics. Police say it is not an exact likeness since the eye color and complexion aren't known.

Anyone with information is asked to call the New Brighton Department of Public Safety at 651-288-4100, or leave an anonymous tip at 651-288-4137or online here.
