TOWSON, Md. -- Baltimore County police hope a facial reconstruction will help identify a woman whose body was found in 2007 in a wooded area.

A resident on Botavia Farm Road found the badly-decomposed body in August 2007.

Forensic experts said the body had been there for about a week.

Police said they don't know the cause of death but ruled the case suspicious.

Baltimore County detectives could be one step closer to identifying a body found more than three years ago.

Police say a facial reconstruction could hold the clue they need to identify the woman.

Gigi Barnett has more on the technology that could lead to a breakthrough.

Just behind the Baltimore County hotel off of Pulaski Highway near a garden in the back of the El Rich motel, police discovered an unidentified decomposing female body.

That was three years ago. Today police still don't know who the female victim is, but they know what she may have looked like.

Forensic detectives just finished a clay bust of the victim. Now police say the search turns to finding anyone who may be missing her.

"Our detectives have been looking through missing persons reports, putting information about the body that we found into that database hoping that we could connect it to a name," said Cpl. Mike Hill, Baltimore County Police.

Leads in the case have been few. Detectives scoured national and local missing persons databases, but nothing matched and so far, no one has come forward to claim her.

"We know that we have DNA with this body. But the problem is that we have no reports with a missing persons report. We're just a bit clueless about this right now," said Hill.

Police say she's probably a white or Hispanic woman, and was about 5- foot-2 and 102 pounds when they found her.

Her age is unknown, and how she died is too.

"They do not know what the cause or manner of death is in this woman. That's one of the reasons why we really want to find out who she is," said Hill.

Although police discovered the victim's body three years ago and they now have a bust of her, the investigation is still open thanks to the cutting-edge technology that could crack this case.

"The fact that we're keeping up with technology, it really enhances what detectives can do and employ new technology on those cases," said Hill.

If you have information on this victim, you are asked to call police.
