SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — The department released the picture Tuesday of how the girl would have looked like in 1973. Authorities said her remains were in a wooded area near Forest City Road near Lake Lotus in August 1973.
The girl is believed to have been about 14 years old. Authorities said new "isotope" testing reveals she was likely from the Pacific Northwest, and was possibly killed in July 1973.
"We are hoping with this new facial approximation, and that she's probably from the Pacific Northwest, that somebody will see this picture and say, 'I know this girl,' and make the phone call," cold case Investigator Jennifer Spears said.
