BARTOW COUNTY, GA — On August 13, a sanitation worker discovered a dismembered female body inside a dumpster at a Georgia landfill.

The Bartow County Sheriff’s Office has released an artist rendering of the woman, as well as an images of her tattoos in hope that someone might recognize her.

At a press conference on the discovery, Sheriff Clark Millsap said that the woman is Caucasian and between the ages of 18 and 35. She also measures between 5-foot-2 and 5-foot-6, weighs about 150 pounds, and has brown or red hair.

In addition, the victim has a distinctive tattoo on her chest of two Easter lilies with a sacred heart between them. The woman also has two names tattooed on her shoulder blades, but authorities are withholding what they are at the moment.

Sheriff Millsap added that the woman’s death was violent and obviously a homicide, as well as the most disturbing case he’s handled so far, stating:

“I’ve been doing this for almost 35 years and I’ve never seen anything like this before. She was cut in two pieces and they put all the pieces in each individual bags and placed them in one dumpster.”

Authorities are not sure when the woman was killed, but they believe the body was placed in the dumpster at about 5:30 P.M. on August 11.
