Young Unidentified Female Wearing Vanderbilt University Apparel Still Not Identified
Investigators in Nashville, Tennessee are looking for help identifying a young female found deceased in 2018. The cause of death has not been determined, according to officials.
On September 8, 2018, Nashville Police said they located an unknown body in "advanced stage of decomposition." Years later, the victim has yet to be named.
According to investigators, the victim was possibly a Hispanic female and may have been in the age range of 15-25 years of age. She was located in the 4400 block of Sulpher Creek Road. According to a press release, there was no evidence of a traffic incident or hit-and-run in the area where the body was found.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children joined the case and helped authorities create a facial reconstruction image of what the young female may have looked like when she was alive. They are hoping someone recognizes the image and comes forward with information.
The victim likely stood anywhere between 5 feet to 5 feet 5 inches tall. One of the best clues to helping identify her may be the articles of clothing she was wearing at the time of her death. Detectives said she had on Vanderbilt University apparel and a black Under Armour pullover hooded sweatshirt.
The victim's leggings, according to authorities, were the "ZooZatz" brand and they had a white Vanderbilt "V" inside the gold star. The pattern was described as "geometric" and "wide-spread."
The press release adds, "She also wore a ZooZatz brand black running hip band with zip pocket with the Vanderbilt logo, a white metal From the Heart brand necklace that appeared to have been missing a charm, a green and black leopard print bra, black undershirt, white socks, and no shoes."
The victim's cause of death could not be determined, authorities add.
