HOUSTON (CBS Houston) On Monday, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office homicide investigators released a composite sketch of a woman whose remains were found in a garbage bag last year. Investigators that someone will recognize the victim and share her identity with authorities.

“The newly released composite sketch was developed from the skeletal remains found in a garbage bag in the 12500 block of Walters Road in north Harris County on Tuesday, October 16, 2012,” added officials with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the medical examiner’s office, the remains are that of a female who stood between 4’7″ to 5’3″. “The shirt the victim was wearing was green in color with the design of the cartoon character ‘Smurfette’ picking the petals off a white flower,” added officials. “The victim was also wearing dark-colored Capri pants size five. She may be a teenager or a small-framed young woman.”

HCSO homicide investigators have very limited information about the case but hope that by viewing the sketch, the public can help providing an identity for the victim as well as information about her death.
