Police seek help identifying woman whose remains were found in Delco park

The Pennsylvania State Police is seeking the public's help in identifying the remains of a woman whose body was found earlier this year in Ridley Creek State park in Delaware County.

At this time, police said, foul play is not suspected.

Hikers walking in a wooded area along a trail in the park found the human remains in January, the State Police said Tuesday. The woman's body was fully clothed in cold-weather attire.

She is believed to have been white, about 25- to 40 years old and about 5-foot-3 to 5-foot-10. Police believe the woman died sometime in 2014.

Various items were found near the woman's body, police said, including a green plaid blanket, black cloth gloves, a black Pacific Trail jacket (size large), Gloria Vanderbilt blue jeans, three rings (a gold Irish Claddagh ring, a gold initial ring bearing the letter "C" and a gold ring with the engraved initials of "C.A. or C.R." on the interior),  two backpacks (a navy-blue canvas bag and a Route 66 black backpack),  two pairs of shoes (size "9" black Totes boots and size "9" gray-and-purple Skechers running shoes) and two empty pill bottles.

The Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Investigation Assessment Unit, the Florida Institute of Forensic Anthropology and Applied Science and the University of South Florida have developed a facial reconstruction of the unidentified woman.

All callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward, police said.
