Avondale Police: Do You Know This Tattoo? Police Using Victim's Ink to Try and Identify Woman Found Drowned in Salt River
The Avondale Police Department is asking the public's help in identifying the body of a woman found dead in the Salt River over the weekend, and it's hoping a tattoo (pictured) found on the body will help.
Yesterday, a fisherman found the body on the bottom of the river near Indian Springs and El Mirage roads about 1 p.m.
The woman was described as between 20 and 25 years old, 5-foot-2 to 5-foot-4 inches tall, 100 to 110 pounds, with long brown hair and blue eyes.
The cause of death is unclear, but police say the body has some distinguishing characteristics -- like the tattoo, which is on the top of her foot, and a navel piercing.
The woman was wearing a tee-shirt with a yin yang symbol on the front.
Anyone with information about the body or the tattoo is asked to call Detective David Jones with the Avondale Police Department at 623-333-7227 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
