MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office has asked the public’s help in identifying skeletal remains found last month.

The sheriff’s office tweeted Friday that the remains of a woman were found in July off Mt. Herman Road.

Investigators believe the remains are that of a Black woman, about 20-35 years old, and between 5'4" and 5'10" tall. A cause of death is still pending.

The sheriff's office says so far, missing person reports in the area have failed to provide any possible identification.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Dennis Ward at 615-904-3060.
