OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities say they are trying to identify a woman after her remains were discovered near a popular lake.
Six years ago, the remains of a woman were found in a shallow grave near Lake Thunderbird.
The medical examiner’s office says the remains are likely those of a white female, possibly with Native American heritage.
Officials say she was about 5’5″ tall and between 30 and 45-years-old.
She had also given birth to at least one child.
Due to the rate of decomposition, investigators believe she had been in the grave between three and 12 months.
A distinctive tattoo of a sunburst was on a large portion of her back.
However, attempts to identify the woman by using DNA have produced no results.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation released an artist’s reconstruction of what the victim may have looked like when she was alive.
