The woman’s body, which was found in Caspers Wilderness Park (map) on Jan. 6, had been there for at least six months, according to a news release from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Preliminary tests indicated that the woman was petite, around 30 years old and had shoulder-length wavy dark brown hair with highlights, the release stated.

She also had a “very distinct” gold-colored dental bridge on her lower left jaw and had possibly sustained a broken nose at some point during her life, according to the release.

Along with the body, deputies recovered a dark windbreaker with “Coach Williams” embroidered on the front of the jacket, along with a logo depicting what appeared to be either a volleyball or a water polo ball.

They also found a pair of dark yoga-style pants, a pinkish short-sleeved shirt or tank top, and a green hair scrunchie.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the Orange County Sheriff’s Department by calling 714-647-7055.
