It is hoped detailed descriptions of the clothing above will jog someone's memory so the Orange County Sheriff's Department can identify the remains of a petite woman found Jan. 6 in Caspers Wilderness Park in rural southeast Orange County.
It is estimated the remains were exposed to the elements for at least six months, according to deputies, who add preliminary testing determined they belong to a petite female, at least age 30, with shoulder length wavy dark brown hair with light colored highlights. She also had “a very distinct gold colored dental bridge on her left lower jaw and possibly had a broken nose at some point in her life,” according to a sheriff's statement.
The photographs are of clothing recovered with the remains and consisted of the following:
1. A size small, dark colored windbreaker type of jacket.
It has snaps and is manufactured by Auburn Sportswear. The front right side of the jacket has the embroidered words “Coach Williams” on it and the front left side of the jacket has a logo depicting a volleyball or a water polo ball.
2. A pair of dark colored athletic yoga style pants.
They are made of spandex/cotton with light colored stripes down the side of both legs and a rear positioned zipper. The inseam measured about 29 or 30 inches.
3. A pinkish speckled short sleeved or tank top T-shirt.
It features a black line design.
Deputies add she had a bright green hair scrunchie band that is not shown in the photographs. Contact the sheriff's department if any of this leads you to believe it is someone you know is missing.
