SIU COLD CASE INVESTIGATION
The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigation Unit (SIU) is requesting the public’s assistance with identifying a previously unidentified female victim from a 1971 Homicide case. On January 23, 1971, the victim was located in the desert area near a dirt road, 2.2 miles east of US Hwy 93 on Hackberry Road. The victim was located in a canvas sack that had been tied at the top with a white cotton rope.
The sack was a white cotton, loosely woven sack with the words “Deer-Pak Ames Harris Neville Co.,” printed in green. The female victim was described as approximately 40 years of age, 5’4”, weighing approximately 125-140 pounds, with curly brown hair. She was dressed in a size 14 multi-colored long sleeve blouse, a black long- sleeved black cardigan sweater, and burnt orange stretch pants with the following tab inside, “Symphony, It’s what’s happening” size 12. She was wearing a pair of black leather, ankle high boots and bobby sox, possibly white at one time.
The victim was not wearing any type of jewelry. An artist from the Museum of Northern Arizona made a sketch of what the victim might have looked like based on the features of her skull. Attached is the sketch and photos of the clothing worn by the victim at the time she was located.
