Sarasota County, Florida -- The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is releasing new computer-generated images of a woman, known only as Jane Doe, who was found dead on February 6, 2007.
At that time, bones were discovered in a wooded area 50 yards south of Ashton Court in Sarasota. The subsequent investigation determined the human remains were that of a woman who was buried in a shallow grave. She had been dead for up to a year. The manner or cause of death has not been released.
The new images were created by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office with the use of craniofacial reconstruction software. The victim is described as:
- A white female in her thirties or forties
- 5'4-5'9" tall, 145-165 pounds
- Long brown hair with blonde streaks
- Her eye color could not be determined and may be different than what is depicted.
The skeletal analysis indicated the victim may have fractured her nose and right wrist at some point in her life. She had breast implants that were manufactured before the issuance of serial numbers. She was wearing a shirt "Made in Italy" and a skirt with a leather belt made by "Spice Wear."
Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators have used many resources to try to identify this woman for the past seven years to no avail.
Anyone with information on this case, or anyone who knows someone who disappeared prior to February 2007 who matches this physical description, is asked to call Criminal Investigations at 861-4900 or contact Crime Stoppers at 941-366-TIPS (8477) or online at www.sarasotacrimestoppers.com.
