Victim Update - North Hopkins Road Homicide

Department detectives have now updated the victim description from the North Hopkins Road homicide. Detectives hope the description and the attached photos of the victim’s tattoos will prompt a member of the public to help identify the victim.

Detectives now describe the black female as in her late teens to early 20’s, four feet, 10 inches tall with a thin build and a buzz-style haircut.

She was wearing a grey T-shirt with the words "Free and Proud" on the front. The jersey she was also wearing is a Nike Philadelphia 76ers number ‘3’ Allen Iverson model.

The tattoo photos are below. They have been darkened to better show the tattoo letters. They are a tattoo on her left forearm, "Sammy G", tattoos on her right knuckles, "G-O-D’-S" and tattoos on the left knuckles, "G-I-F-T".

At approximately 8:39 a.m. Monday, officers received a call from a passerby who had found the body of a black female in a wooded area northwest of the 3700 block of North Hopkins Road .

The Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause and manner of death.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip.
