Police Release Sketches of Unidentified Woman Found in Trash Can

Categories: Local News
Pleasanton police are desperate to identify a woman whose body was found dumped in a trash can last month, and have released these sketches, hoping it will help them solve this sad mystery.

Police said the body was found along the 11000 block of Dublin Canyon Road on May 24. Medical authorities performed an autopsy, however they were unable to determine her identity or how she died. What's more, fingerprints and dental records have not led to any match.

According to press reports, the woman had shoulder-length dark hair, was 5-foot-6, and weighed about 130 pounds, according to the Alameda County Coroner's Office. She was wearing an Old Navy shirt and pajama bottoms when she was found.

She had blue fingernail polish and red toenail polish, and three ear piercings in each ear, including earrings in the shape of feet. She had no tattoos or distinctive markings, police said.

A forensic anthropologist told media outlets that the woman is believed to be either Asian or Hispanic, with the possibility of Caucasian with Asian or Native American traits. Her age is estimated between her mid-20s to 40 years of age.

Authorities are asking anyone with information related to the case to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at (925) 931-5100.
