Ellis County Sheriff asking for help identifying dead woman

Posted on 31 Jul 2012 at 2:58pm

Ellis County Sheriff investigator Joe Fitzgerald is asking the LGBT community in Dallas for help in identifying a body found in a heavily wooded area in the county.

She is approximately 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighing about 115 pounds. She is believed to be of African-American heritage. She was wearing a black or dark gray tank top, blue jean shorts and white Nike tennis shoes with purple shoe laces.

Fitzgerald said information connected her to Dallas and Irving and possibly to the LGBT community.

Trauma indicates the murder did not occur there.

“Someone killed her and threw her to the side of the road,” he said.

Investigators believe she disappeared on July 17. She made some purchases in Irving on that day. The body was found on July 23 and she may have been dead for five days and was badly decomposed. The sheriff’s office released a sketch of what she may have looked like when alive (above) and pictures of tattoos and identifying marks (below).

What bothers investigators is that there have been no reports of a missing person matching the description of the woman found. Anyone with information about her identity should contact Joe Fitzgerald in the Ellis County Sheriff’s office at 972-825-4928.
