It has been nearly four months since a suitcase containing bones was found along I-75 in Butts County. And while investigators have not identified the woman, there were enough clues to create a composite sketch, the GBI said Thursday.
A motorist searching for a lost item near Exit 201 found the suitcase in late December. A medical examiner confirmed the bones inside were human.
An anthropological examination found the remains to be an African-American female between the ages of 19 and 45, GBI spokesman Bahan Rich said. The woman’s height was between 5 feet and 5-foot-8. A well-healed fracture was found on the right leg directly at the ankle, Rich said. The remains also revealed a pronounced gap between the top two front teeth.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the GBI office in Milledgeville at 478-445-4173, the Butts County Sheriff’s Office at 770-775-8216 or via email at Tips@gbi.ga.gov.
