By Ed Brock

Clayton County police investigators are releasing some more information on the body of a woman found last week at a construction site.

A contractor who came to the site off Slate Road early Friday morning found the remains of a Hispanic female. Police are still trying to identify the woman who they say is a victim of foul play.

The woman was between 20 and 30 years of age, was between 5'3" to 5'4" tall and weighed between 125 and 130 pounds. She had long brownish auburn hair, curly/frizzy in texture.

At the time she was found she was clothed in a white pullover shirt with a logo of a large star surrounded by smaller stars with the word "Atlanta" across the front of the shirt.

She had on red "hot pants" shorts and a pair of anklet socks white in color with black toes. She had a gold Seiko watch and a gold bracelet on her left wrist that had an oval insert with the words "I Love You."

The woman also had one pierced ear ring with a Disney character charm attached.

There is a large tattoo covering the length of her left forearm. At the top of this tattoo is a second tattoo which may be the name "Arnold." The woman had a small tattoo on her right hand in the web between the thumb and the forefinger of a single word that may be "Vanita" or "Vanida."

Also the woman had several small scars on both wrists and she had a larger scar on her left upper arm.

Anyone with information on the girl's identity is asked to call the county's Criminal Investigation Division at (770) 477-3605.
