Assistance Requested in Identifying Body Found in Stafford

STAFFORD, VA (WWBT) - The Stafford County Sheriff's Office is requesting the public's assistance in helping identify the identity of the body found partially decomposed in the woods near the I-95 south bound ramp off of Route 610 – Garrisonville Road in Stafford County. The body was discovered on Tuesday, March 2, 2010 by a Stafford County Sheriff's Office Animal Control Officer who was looking for a lost dog. 

The Stafford County Sheriff's Office is investigating this incident as a homicide. The victim is described as a black female, age mid teens to mid 20's, approximately 5'2" and 110 pounds with long black hair. She had well-manicured fingernails, well maintained dental work and pierced ears. The victim was fully clothed and was wearing a light blue sweater dress (juniors 14-16), black Capri pants/leggings and gray socks with no shoes. Authorities released pictures of the victim's clothing in hopes of finding out who she is.

The victim died from a gunshot wound and was left in the location sometime in November or December 2009. The location of the gunshot wound on the victim is not being released at this time.

"Somebody may have seen or heard something relating to this case," stated Sheriff Charles E. Jett. "We are hoping a tip will lead to the identity of this victim as well as the individual or individuals who are responsible for her death. This young lady is someone's daughter, relative or perhaps she is even a mother and she deserves to have justice in this case."  

The Stafford County Sheriff's Office has sent information out to law enforcement agencies across the country seeking assistance in helping identify the victim.  

If anyone has any information about this incident they are asked to contact the Stafford County Sheriff's Office at 540-658-4450.
