TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department has released new information in a cold case from 32 years ago.

The Sheriff is hoping a facial reconstruction image will help identify a woman's body.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created the facial recognition image of the woman.

Investigators have also released pictures of the clothing the victim was wearing.

The body was found in the desert southeast of the Pima County Fairgrounds on April 8, 1981.

The victim was described as Caucasian with blond hair, 18 to 22 years old, 5'3" tall, 100 to 110 pounds and with a white opaque spot on one of her front teeth.

The victim was wearing a navy blue Chain Reaction brand blouse that had red sleeves with floral print, H.I.S. brand blue jeans, size three, with a patch near the left rear pocket, white ankle socks with pink pom-poms and brown suede type earth shoes. 

A blue denim OOPs California brand jacket with red and white striped cuffs and collar was located near the victim. Also found nearby was a second light blue jacket. 

Authorities are treating the case as a homicide because of signs of trauma on the body.

If you recognize this person or have information about this case you are urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
