Winnipeg Police are renewing efforts to identify a woman pulled from the Red River three months ago.
Police released a forensic sketch of the woman, along with photos of jewelry she had been wearing when pulled from the river June 15 just south of the north Perimeter bridge.
WPS spokesman Const. Jason Michalyshen said the drawing is a facial reconstruction and not an exact likeness, adding he hoped the additional information will be enough to attract someone who can identify her.
"It’s far too long a period of time, in any situation, where a deceased is not reunited with family or friends," Michalyshen said.
The woman is believed to be between 35-50 years of age, about 5’-5", with a slim build. She may have worn dentures.
"On occasion when we do locate a deceased person, usually we can identify relatively quickly," Michalyshen said. "From time to time, we’re faced with some challenges … That certainly appears to be the case here."
