Police use forensic artist in west Fort Worth missing person case


by Ben Posey

Fort Worth police need help identifying a woman whose remains were found in a field west of the 7300 block of Calmont Avenue on March 20.

Investigators called in forensic artist Suzanne Baldon of Waco to create a mask of clay applied directly to the woman’s skull which was released to the media this past Friday.

The woman is believed to have been a small-framed Hispanic woman, 4-foot-9 to 5-foot-4 and between the ages of 21 and 35. She had layered long, wavy brown hair up to 13 inches long, police say.

Police say the body could have remained buried much longer if a work crew hadn’t found her skull while digging in a wooded area northwest of the intersection of Calmont Avenue and Alta Mere Drive.

Judging by the stage of decomposition, investigators believe she died between October 2012 and early 2013.

Investigators are not releasing the cause of death.

Anyone with information about the woman’s identity or information about the death should contact the Fort Worth Police Department Homicide Detective Kyle Sullivan 817-392-4340.

A reward up to $1,000 will be offered to anyone who provides a tip that leads to an arrest for the crime or clearing the case.
