After the scene was searched by the Evidence Collection Unit and Homicide Detectives the remains were transported to the OCME for a post mortem examination. Preliminary assessment by the OCME has revealed the decedent is a Caucasian or Asian female, approximately mid-twenties to thirty years of age with an approximate height of 5’03.   It is believed the remains are that of someone who went missing within the past year. Further examination of the remains is being completed to obtain as many physical descriptors as possible to assist with the identity of the individual as well as cause and manner of death.   The Anne Arundel County Police Department is working with neighboring jurisdictions in an attempt to positively identify the remains.
This is a very fluid and active investigation where the Anne Arundel County Police are urging anyone with information to come forward by calling the Anne Arundel County Homicide Unit at 410-222-4731.  If people with information wish to remain anonymous they can also contact the Anne Arundel County Police Tip Line 410-222-4700 or Metro Crime Stoppers.
