Pleasanton police are desperate to identify a woman whose body was found dumped in a trash can last month, and have released these sketches, hoping it will help them solve this sad mystery.

Police said the body was found along the 11000 block of Dublin Canyon

Road on May 24. Medical authorities performed an autopsy, however they were unable to determine her

identity or how she died. What's more,

fingerprints and dental records have not led to any match.

According to press reports, the woman had shoulder-length dark hair, was 5-foot-6, and weighed about 130 pounds, according to the Alameda County Coroner's Office. She

was wearing an Old Navy shirt and pajama bottoms when she was found.

She had blue fingernail polish and red toenail polish, and three ear piercings in each ear, including earrings in the shape of feet. She had no tattoos or distinctive markings, police said.

A forensic anthropologist told media outlets that the woman is believed to be either Asian or Hispanic, with the possibility of Caucasian with Asian or Native American traits. Her age is estimated between her mid-20s to 40 years of age.

Authorities are asking anyone with information related to the case to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at (925) 931-5100.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
