PLEASANTON (CBS 5) — Pleasanton Police released additional details Wednesday about a woman whose body was found in a trash can last month.

Authorities released sketches of what the woman may have looked like and the distinctive jewelry she was found wearing.

Police said the body was found along the 11000 block of Dublin Canyon Road on May 24th. An autopsy was conducted on the woman, but her identity and cause of death have not been determined. So far, fingerprints and dental records have not led to a match.

Authorities have previously said the body is not likely 15-year-old Sierra LaMar of Morgan Hill. LaMar has not been seen since the morning of March 16th.

The woman had shoulder-length dark hair, was 5’6” tall, and weighed around 130 pounds, according to the Alameda County Coroner’s Office. She was wearing an Old Navy shirt and pajama bottoms when she was found.

Authorities also said she was found wearing blue fingernail polish and red toenail polish. The woman had three ear piercings in each ear, including earrings in the shape of feet. She had no tattoos or distinctive markings.

According to a forensic anthropologist, the woman is believed to be either Asian or Hispanic, with the possibility of Caucasian with Asian or Native American traits. Her age is estimated between her mid 20s to 40 years of age.

Authorities are asking anyone with information related to the case to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at (925) 931-5100.
