Human remains may be identified by lab findings

By Susn Dupont

Cameron Parish Coroner

The Cameron Parish Coroner’s Office, Calcasieu Coroner’s Office and Cameron Parish Sheriff’s Office would like to release at this time the findings by LSU FACES laboratory of the remains of a human head that was found South of Hackberry on Mar. 1, 2018.

LSU FACES lab has determined the human remains are of a white or Hispanic female between the ages of 30-50 with medium length, brown hair. Time of death is estimated to be one to six weeks prior to discovery of the remains. DNA was extracted and entered into the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) but no match was obtained.

However, the DNA information will remain in the system. Investigations with several agencies have been conducted throughout the United States in order to identify the decedent with no positive leads at this time.

A composite sketch of the decedent is being done at this time by LSU FACES lab and will be released as soon as it is completed. More information will be provided when it becomes available.
