Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Deputies Asking for Help to Identify Murder Victim

ID #16-62

On 12-14-2014, the remains of an unidentified female homicide victim were found down the side of Highway 9 in the hills above Saratoga, Ca. in an area near Booker Creek Road.

The victim was found to be wearing size Zero “Just USA” brand blue jeans; size Medium pink colored panties; size 36A black colored “Lily of France” brand bra; and a size Small blue floral print “Ambiance Apparel” brand blouse.

Based on a forensic anthropology examination conducted by the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office, the victim is estimated to have been 15-24 years of age, 4’11”-5’03” tall, primarily of the Caucasian Race, brown colored hair, with a petite build.

It is estimated she died sometime between April 2014 and when her remains were found in December 2014. This estimation is based on the manufacturing date of the blouse. Attempts to identify the victim proved unsuccessful.

UPDATE: In October 2015, Homicide investigators submitted the victim’s skull to the FBI for a facial approximation. In December 2015, the FBI completed the facial approximation and provided that to the Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s Office Homicide investigators are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the victim and have submitted this case to the website.

The case is available for public viewing, including images of the facial approximation and an exemplar photo of the blouse.

The NamUS Unidentified Persons Case number is 14683. NamUS stands for the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System.
