Police Need Help Identifying Human Remains From 1994

Investigators from the Michigan State Police Alpena Post and the Alcona County Sheriff’s Department need your help in solving a case from 1994. Both forces are trying to identify human remains that were found in northern Michigan 23 years ago.

The remains were discovered by a bow hunter in a wooded area near Bamfield Road between Curtisville and the Alcona Dam in Alcona County. Michigan State University anthropologist claims the remains are that of a Caucasian female, 30 to 50 years old.

Evidence shows a fracture to the skull indicates she may have experienced some type of trauma during the time of her death. DNA samples were taken and scientists at the University of North Texas Health Science Center for human identification created a full DNA profile.

A case profile has been posted on the national missing and unidentified persons system database. Three forensic artists have created descriptions on what the woman may have looked like before her death.

If anyone has any leads to this case please contact the MSP Alpena Post, at 989–354–4101 or the Alcona County Sheriff’s Department at 989–724–6271.
