Investigators Recreate Face Of Woman Found In Shallow Grave

(Fort Worth police)

FORT WORTH (June 15, 2013)--Fort Worth police are hoping a clay reconstruction of a dead woman's face will help them identify her.

A work crew found the body of the petite Hispanic woman with long dark hair in a shallow grave on the west side of the city, but Fort Worth homicide detective Kyle Sullivan says leads generated after the body was found ran cold.

A national missing person's database also turned up no leads.

Investigators asked a forensic artist to create a mask of the woman's face by applying clay to the woman's skull, he said.

Police presented the reconstruction at a news conference Friday hoping someone will recognize the woman.

The cause and manner of the woman's death have not been determined.
