KSP asking for help identifying cold case murder victim

Kentucky State Police has released additional information regarding a cold case murder victim.

State police said that in 1988 a deceased female was located in a rural area of Owen County near a roadway. Due to the body’s decomposition, the victim has not yet been identified.

New information has led investigators to believe the victim may have affiliations to the Columbus, Ohio and possibly the Miami, Florida areas, according to state police. With the assistance of the Texas Rangers Evidential Art & Facial Identification technology, a new composite has been prepared that depicts how the victim may have looked at the time of her death.

Anyone with information that may assist in identifying the victim is asked to contact Kentucky State Police at 502-532-6363.
