POSEY CO., Ind. (WFIE) - The Posey County Coroner tells us they couldn’t find anything on the body found Monday morning near the Mount Vernon Boat Club that could ID her, and are now asking for your helping.
The coroner tells us they believe the woman was around 40-50 years old. She’d been in the water for at least a week, maybe even a month.
According to the forensic pathologist, they believe the woman is white. She had false teeth on the top, and they believe she has had children.
The coroner says she was wearing a block Snoopy t-shirt with a camo thermal underneath. She was wearing Levi blue jeans and thermal pants.
The coroner says at the time she was found, she had no hair, no tattoos, no noticeable scars and was wearing a linked necklace and bracelet.
She also had one stud earring with a New Orleans Saints emblem.
The FBI has been notified. Investigators are sending her fingerprints to the FBI office in Quantico, Virginia in hopes of identifying the woman.
“We want to make sure we let someone know she’s been located we have her, and we want to get her back to her family, and that’s what we’re doing right now," said Bill Denning, Posey County coroner. "We’re trying everything that we can think of at the moment to make identification so we can get that family notified.”
Investigators say no trauma was found on the woman.
The Posey County Coroner tells us this case is like nothing he has dealt with before. He asks that anyone who may have information on this woman’s identity to call the police or the coroner’s office.
