Investigators use digital forensic technology in 25-year-old cold case


VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - It has been 25 years since the bones of an unknown woman were found in Volusia County.

She was believed to be between 25 and 40 years old.

Volusia County sheriff’s deputies worked to find any evidence in the area where the woman’s bones were found – a wooded area off Clyde Morris Boulevard.

They came up empty-handed after the search, with the exception of a facial reconstruction done by an artist using clay.

A new reconstruction, made using digital technology, has revealed a very different picture of the woman. It is one that investigators believe is much closer to what she actually looked like.

They hope someone will see the new facial reconstruction and recognize the victim so they can finally close the decades-old case.

“We want to be able to identify her, that is the first step in may steps in finding out what happened to her,” Volusia County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Andrew Gant said.
