Update: Reconstruction sketch of victim's face released

mw.jpgSacramento sheriff's homicide detectives continue to 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.

Today, investigators released a reconstruction sketch of the victim's face, left. Investigators are releasing the sketch and re-releasing photos of photographs of three distinctive items of jewelry and clothing the victim was wearing.
