A woman whose dead body may have been inside a garbage bag for a month before discovery was wearing a Smurfette T-shirt and Harris County Sheriff's deputies hope this will lead to her ID.
According to HCSO, the garbage bag was found in the 12500 block of Walters Road in north Harris County on Tuesday, October 16. The woman was wearing a green shirt, but the design shown in this photo is the same, the HCSO said.
Investigators are hoping someone will recognize the woman from this information and from a description of her done by the Harris County Medical Examiner's Office.
According to the medical examiner's office, the remains are of a female about 5'2" to 5'4". She was wearing the above mentioned shirt with dark-colored capris pants size 5. It is believed that she may have been there for just over a month.
