DAVENPORT, Fla. (AP) -- The Polk County Sheriff's Office says the remains of a woman whose body was found more than a year ago near a park have been identified.
The Lakeland Ledger reports (http://bit.ly/29OTloU) that DNA testing identified the remains as those of Jessica Rousseau, who was born on Aug. 28, 1982. She died in February or March 2015, but her cause of death remains unknown.
Last October, her remains were among nine cold cases statewide where facial reconstructions were created through a project at the Florida Institute for Forensic Anthropology and Applied Science at the University of South Florida. Using 3-D imagery, forensic artist Maggie Florence sculpted a replica of what the woman may have looked like. Although the image was widely circulated, no one identified her.
