A Tattoo is the Only Clue to Solving an Unidentified Woman's Murder
The body of a womans torso was located on June 28, 1997 in
Hempstead, New York. Police do not have much to go on except that she was
black or biracial and had a picture of this two inch tattoo of peach
shaped like a heart with a bite taken out of it and two drops falling. The
tattoo was on the deceased womans breast. Police eventually located
a tattoo artist out of Bristol, Connecticut who claimed to have created
that tattoo for a woman prior to 1997. There is not much known about the
victim except that she was seen with a friend from the Bristol area. The
deceased woman also indicated that she was from New York and was planning
to see friends in East Hartford that night. The tattoo artist estimated
her age to be 18-20 years old. The woman also had an abdominal scar, which
could have resulted from a caesarean section. It is possible that this
woman has relatives living in Connecticut that could identify this woman
by her tattoo. If you know who this woman is please contact the Nassau
County Police Department at 1-800-244-TIPS. For additional information

Does a Piece of Clothing Hold The Secret to The Identity of an Unknown Murder Victim
On March 25, 2000 in Clinton, Maryland, the remains of a woman were found.
The victims identity is unknown and it is believed that she was
killed by blunt force trauma. It is estimated that the victim had been
dead for about a month and that her age could have ranged from 15 to 30
years of age. She was of African descent, with brown eyes and black hair.
She wore 12 inch hair extensions. Items found on the deceased victim
include a jean jacket and plastic Tweety Bird wristwatch. There was also
the initial C.S written on a tag on a piece of clothing. Perhaps the most
telling clue of this woman's identity is that she was found wearing a T
Shirt with the logo "1995 Special Olympics World Games, New Haven,
CT, USA". Is it possible that this woman was a participant in the
1995 Special Olympics in New Haven. Could the initials C.S. be hers or a
family members? If you know who this individual might be, please contact
the Prince George's County Sheriff's Office at 301-772-4925. The picture
of the victim is a clay recreation of what the victim probably looked
like. For additional information on this case please click on the link for

A Hunting Trip Turns Up Something Interesting
On October 9, 2006, two bow hunters looking for deer made an unusual discovery. In a marshy area where the Salmon and Connecticut Rivers merge in Haddam named "Cove Meadow Peninsuela", one of the hunters found the skull partially submerged in the ground. It was later determined that the skull was that of a white male between the ages of 35 and 45 years of age. No other bones were found near the area where the skull was found. Police are not sure if the skull washed there from flooding from the northern part of the rivers, or if the victim died or was placed there.
A Gruesome Discovery With Few Clues To Go On
Police in Milford are still trying to discover the secret behind a gruesome discovery found near the banks of the Housatonic River in 1994. A torso was found dumped at the end of Oronoque Road, and has yet to be identified. The torso was found March 24, 1994, in a secluded neighborhood near the river banks. It was wearing shorts, wrapped in a bedspread and stuffed inside a canvas bag according to police sources. Police said they believe the remains were that of a black-haired Latino male who was between 24 to 30 years old, weighed 120 pounds and had a birthmark on his buttocks. In 1992, the body of an Asian man wrapped in a rug was also found off Oronoque Road in another unsolved case.
Man's Identity Still Unknown After Nearly A Century

The medical examiner listed the man's cause of death as being caused by shock. He had a fractured skull, tibia and both legs. He had been hit by a train. It is unknown if it was a suicide. But he was described as a white male around the age of thirty. He is buried in Hillside Cemetery.
