Kentucky State Police have released pictures of pieces of jewelry found on the body of a woman whose remains were discovered alongside the northbound lanes of Interstate 65 in Hardin County Wednesday.
Police said that a mowing crew found the body Wednesday morning in a grassy area near mile marker 99 in Hardin County.
Police say the woman's race is undetermined due to decomposition. They say she was estimated to be between 20 and 40 years old, between 5-foot-2 and 5-foot-5 and weighed about 145 pounds.
Police say her hair was shoulder length, dark brown and wavy few red streaks or highlights. They say she had short, well kept fingernails with remnants of red polish and toenails polished with silver glitter polish.
The jewelry is described as a ring on right middle finger with a gold metal ring with central solid turquoise-colored oval stone surrounded by clear stones (perhaps diamonds) set in ornate gold filigree. She also had a gold-colored earring with complex design resembling a bee or other insect, with pink-colored stones in the upper sides and a single clear stone at the bottom.
