The woman was found wearing a size 18/20 maroon Lane Bryant tee and size large black and gray shorts. She is around 5'1", heavyset with medium-length light brown hair and missing some upper and lower teeth. She also did not have any piercings or tattoos, according to police.

APD says efforts to identify her have been unsuccessful and that cause of death, while not yet determined, does not appear to be suspicious at this time.
