MARIETTA | Help needed identifying cold case victim | News
MARIETTA, Ga. -- Marietta Police are asking for the public's help identifying a body found nearly two decades ago.
The remains were discovered in June of 1993 near a construction site on Scufflegrit Road. For a while, police believed the body was that of a Cherokee County woman who vanished in 1992; a recent DNA test proved the remains do not belong to her.
Forensic artist Marla Lawson produced a facial reconstruction of how the victim may have looked when she died.
The woman is white and was most likely born between 1957 and 1962. She was about 5-feet-3-inches to 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighed between 100 and 120 pounds.
When the body was discovered, the victim wore a white halter top, a scarf with an orange and pink diamond design, a sleeveless tan jacket, elastic band socks, a 24" strand of white beads with imprinted blue flowers and gold metal beads, and multicolored beaded earrings.
Anyone with information in this cold case is asked to call Marietta Police at 770-794-6990.
