Officials recently released a 3D clay model in hopes that someone may recognize the woman.
"We have investigated several leads provided by callers, which have all been eliminated by use of dental records. She still remains unidentified," said Economy police Chief Michael O'Brien.
Economy police, along with the Beaver County Coroner's office and the Beaver County D.A.'s office, have been working to identify the woman's remains since she was found Dec. 12 on Mason Road. A resident walking in the area made the discovery in a wooded area off of the roadway.
A coroner's investigation indicated the head had been embalmed. There is not any indication as to how long ago that embalming took place.
Officials said the person appears to be that of a female, 50 or older, with whitish, gray hair and soft curls that appears to have been styled. Her full set of teeth were intact and in good condition. Her identity is still unknown.
"Unfortunately, dental records and DNA are not kept in a database where they can be readily compared and identified," O'Brien said. "We have to have a specific sample to compare the records to identify the remains. Our priority is identifying the remains. After an identification is made, we can move forward with this case."
Authorities have used a new tool-- the 3D Model likeness reconstruction-- to try to generate some type of recognition.
If anyone has any information that may lead to her identification, please call the Economy Borough Police Department at 724-876-0380 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
