Composite drawing

WEATHERFORD – The Parker County Sheriff's Office has released a composite drawing created by a Texas Ranger forensic artist of skeletal remains discovered in December off of Ragle Road.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said a biological profile was developed by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office, followed by the composite drawing.

The profile is from a Hispanic or Asian female in her late 20s to early 30s, ranging from 4-feet 6-inches to 5-feet 3-inches tall, with a likely time of death to be from 2015 to the spring of 2018.

The skeletal remains were discovered by hunters on Dec. 29, 2018, in a pasture north of Lake Weatherford. Sheriff Fowler contacted several outside agencies in order to conduct a thorough search and investigation. 

“I would like to personally thank Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn, Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office Senior Forensic Anthropologist Dana Austin, the local and Austin-based Texas Rangers who lent us their forensic sketch artist and Search One K-9 Search and Rescue Team who assisted in the search and investigation,” Fowler said. “Every member of each organization who assisted us in our investigation played a vital role in the search. This investigation proves once again that a cooperative agency effort is always a successful effort.” 

Investigators are still seeking information on the identity of the female and information regarding the events leading to her death.

“We are seeking a definitive identification with family members to come forward and conduct a DNA comparison,” said Sheriff Fowler. 

Anyone with information about this case or the possible identity of the female is encouraged to contact the sheriff’s office at 817-594-8845.
