Updated Composite of Cold Case Homicide Victim
Clay County, Missouri – October 3rd, 2016– In April of 1985 the skeletal remains of a female were discovered in a field near Missouri 210 Highway and Boyer Road in southwest Clay County. Initial information from the case was that the victim was believed to be a Caucasian female from 18 to 22 years old, but Cold Case Investigators hope that the newest information available will help identify the victim.
Investigators have been able to determine that the victim was an African American female, and was between 17 and 23 years of age at the time of her death in 1985.
This information became available through the use of technology, medical examination, forensic science, and computer imaging by the University of Northern Texas, Center for Human Identification, Laboratory of Forensics Anthropology, The University of Kansas Hospital, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Anyone who recognizes this person is asked to contact the Clay County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Unit at (816) 407-3716, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
