Authorities are working to identify the woman whose body, in an advanced stage of decomposition, was discovered on September 8, 2018

Nashville, TENNESSEE – Metro Police said the body was in an advanced stage of decomposition and it was found in the 4400 block of Sulpher Creek Road.

Metro Police said that forensic analysis determined that she was black and possibly Hispanic.

She was approximately 5’-5’5” tall with black, curly hair. She is estimated to have been 15-25 years old.

Due to her potential young age, a forensic artist with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created a facial reconstruction of the woman (photo attached) depicting what she may have looked like.

She was wearing Vanderbilt University apparel, including a black Under Armor pull over hooded sweatshirt and ZooZatz brand black leggings that had the white Vanderbilt “V” inside the gold star in a wide-spread geometric pattern.

She also wore a ZooZatz brand black running hip band with zip pocket with the Vanderbilt logo, a white metal From the Heart brand necklace that appeared to have been missing a charm, a green and black leopard print bra, black undershirt, white socks, and no shoes.

Due to the condition of her body, the Medical Examiner was unable to determine a cause of death.

There was no evidence of a traffic/hit and run crash on the roadway, Metro Police said.

Anyone with information about the woman’s identity is asked to contact Cold Case Detective Matt Filter at 615-862-7803.
