BLANCHARD, Oklahoma – Blanchard police are asking for the public's help in identifying a female homicide victim whose remains were found in April of 2010.

According to Blanchard police, the woman's remains were found in a wooded area in west Blanchard on April 6.

With the help of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations, the University of Oklahoma's Archaeology Department and the Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office, a reconstruction of the skull and facial features was conducted by the OSBI.

According to an anthropologist forensic examination, the victim is described as possibly being a white female, about 20 to 30 years-of-age (most likely 23 years-of-age), approximately 5'1" to 5'6" (most likely 5'3") tall, and had a possible old leg injury or strain to the lower right leg. The victim also had a severe over-bite in which the front teeth overlapped the lower teeth. This victim seems to have not given birth, had four piercings in the right ear, two piercings in the left ear, and either a nose or upper lip ("Monroe") piercing. The victim had possibly received fake manicured nails in which a flower was painted on to one of them. The victim was dressed in pajama pants that had the writing "Naughty – Who's your mama?" on them, underwear that had the words "Go get ‘em" on them, and a Jerzee XL T-shirt.

Authorities are asking for anyone with any information that could aid in identifying the victim and help in the investigation of her murder to contact Chief Tom Linn or Detective Lt. Dennis Furey of the Blanchard Police Department at 405-485-9391 or the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations at 405-848-6724.
