Forensic Anthropology Team Creates Sketch To Help Identify Body

KENT, Ohio - A body found in Canton more than three months ago was in such bad shape that there wasn't even a face to identify, but thanks to Kent State University scientists, there is now, 19/43 News reported.

The body was found Christmas week near Trump Avenue in Canton Township.

Without knowing who died, it was almost impossible for police to find the killer. So, investigators called in the forensic anthropology team at Kent State.

The scientists studied the evidence and created a drawing of the victim (pictured, above). They said that the body was that of an African-American woman who was approximately five-feet, seven-inches tall. They estimate that she was between 22 and 26 years old.

Detectives said that they hope someone recognizes the face in the drawing and calls the Stark County Sheriff's Department with her name or other information.
