OWEN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Do you know this Jane Doe?

Kentucky State Police in Campbellsburg have asked for the public's assistance in identifying a 1988 cold case murder victim.

That year, officials found a woman in a rural area lying in close proximity to a roadway. Due to severe decomposition, the woman has not yet been identified. KSP is hoping to change that.

New information has led investigators to believe the victim may have affiliations to the Columbus, Ohio and/or the Miami, Florida areas. With the assistance of Texas Rangers Evidential Art & Facial Identification, using new advancements in technology, a new composite has been prepared that depicts how the victim may have looked at the time of her death.

If you know this woman...please call Detective Johnson with the Kentucky State Police Post 5 at 502-532-6363.
