Sacramento sheriff's homicide detectives need the public's help in identifying a woman whose remains were found in March in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

Investigators believe the woman had been dead nearly four years before a fisherman found her March 29 in the 17000 block of Tyler Island Road. The woman, who detectives said was likely the victim of a homicide, was found in dense brush.

The woman was either white or Latino and stood between 5-foot-1 inch and 5-foot-8.

She was found with a light-colored zippered Grateful Dead jacket, top, with a multi-colored band around the collar and waist area, a beaded necklace, bottom right, with a tarnished crouching frog, and a dark blue pullover sweatshirt, bottom left, with the words "Delta Fire Crew" and two crossed fireman's axes with the No. 5 on the left chest area.

Anyone with information on who the woman might be is asked to call Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
