DRPS Major Crime Homicide Investigators recently returned to the scene near Bowmanville where female human remains were discovered in October 2006 to conduct additional forensic searches in a broader area.
Homicide and Forensic officers have been combing a broader area since early November, in their efforts to locate additional evidence and identify the unknown female victim. Although the original search area was quite large, investigators decided to expand the search area even further in hopes of finding other items.
The investigative search has revealed several new artifacts that may be related to this case, including a ladies gold ring (size 9½) and an additional piece of clothing identified as a unique multi-coloured shirt. In addition, investigators have now been able to create a DNA profile of the unnamed female victim, although no matches have been made.
The shirt has a "Blue Rodeo" brand name tag. A photo is attached.
