Still no ID for woman’s remains in SW Ohio; DNA didn’t help


XENIA, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say DNA testing hasn’t helped identify the woman whose skeletal remains were found by mushroom hunters in southwest Ohio in early May.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office says a forensic anthropologist determined the remains might’ve been exposed to the elements for three months to a year before being found in a wooded area about 15 miles southeast of Dayton.

Detectives say the woman was Caucasian, 25 to 50 years old, and between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-10. She wore a white tank top, white bra and blank sweatpants with a pink stripe and a pink heart on the left thigh with the word “babe.”

Investigators hope that sharing those details leads to tips to help identify the woman.

A DNA sample compared against databases of known people turned up no matches.
