WATERLOO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Investigators are seeking the public’s help to identify a woman whose body was found in a garbage bag in 1978 along a Jackson-area road.
The Michigan State Police post in Jackson this week released artist renderings of the woman, whose body was discovered Aug. 29, 1978 on Clear Lake Road in Jackson County’s Waterloo Township. Police believe her body was dumped around 9:20 a.m. that day.
Another dead woman was found that morning and identified in 1978.
Police say the unidentified woman is believed to be black and between 28 and 40 years old at her death. She was about 5 feet, 3 inches to 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighed 130 pounds. She wore an auburn, wavy, collar-length wig and may be from the Detroit area.
