“This woman’s identity has remained a mystery for nearly two decades, but we hope this image will result in some new leads,” Attorney General DeWine said according to 10TV. “Someone had to have known her before she died, and perhaps this picture created by our forensic artist will spark someone’s recollection of a friend or family member who hasn’t been seen for several years.”
