Help sought in identifying woman's body found in O.C. wilderness park

Sheriff’s deputies in Orange County are asking for the public’s help in identifying a woman whose body was found in Caspers Wilderness Park earlier this year.

Authorities said tests have revealed that the woman was petite, approximately 30 years old and had shoulder-length wavy dark brown hair.

The body, which was discovered Jan. 6, had been exposed to the elements for at least six months, detectives said. The wilderness park is located off Ortega Highway outside San Juan Capistrano.

Among the items found with the body was a dark windbreaker with the words “Coach Williams” embroidered on it and a logo depicting a volleyball, or possibly a water polo ball, on the front, the sheriff’s department said in a press release.

The woman was wearing yoga-style pants and a pinkish short-sleeved tank top and had a bright green hair scrunchie.

Authorities said it appears she had possibly suffered a broken nose at some point in her life, and had a “very distinct” gold-colored dental bridge on her lower left jaw.

Deputies are asking anyone with information to call (714) 647-7055
