OSP releases approximation sketch of dead child
Oregon State Police detectives attempting to identify the remains of a child discovered Dec. 10 in the H.B. Van Duzer Forest State Scenic Corridor released a sketch Monday of the deceased female in hopes members of the public can assist in determining the child’s identity.
According to OSP, investigators were called to the area off of Highway 18 northeast of Rose Lodge where the child’s remains were found. Examination by the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office concluded she was between 3 feet 10 inches to 4 feet 6 inches tall, and between the ages of 6 1/2 and 10 years old with long brown or black hair.
“Due to the condition of the remains, she had likely been deceased at least 30 days before she was discovered,” an OSP news release issued late last month read. The child’s remains were recovered with the help of Lincoln County Search and Rescue.
The sketch released Monday by authorities was provided with assistance from the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office. The investigation into the child’s death remained ongoing as of Tuesday afternoon, and further information on the case was unavailable as of the New-Times’ deadline.
Anyone with information that might help investigators identify the child is asked to call 1-800-442-0776 or *OSP (*677).
