LEBANON, Mo. — Investigators are asking for the public's help to identify the woman whose remains were discovered encased in concrete and stuffed in a toolbox.
A hunting party discovered the container on Nov. 15 in a wooded area of Laclede County in southern Missouri. A coroner estimated the woman had been dead for about 10 days.
On Monday, the Missouri State Highway Patrol offered new details about the woman in an effort to learn who she was.
Authorities say she was 25 to 45 years old, weighed about 145 pounds and had light brown hair and manicured fingernails. She had a surgical scar on her lower abdomen and has had a hysterectomy and gall bladder surgery.
Anyone with information should contact patrol Sgt. Jason Clark at 573-522-0980 or 866-362-6422.
