Authorities ID 1991 homicide victim previously known as ‘Tiger Lady’
Law enforcement officials say that they have identified the body of a 1991 homicide victim previously known by her tattoo as “Tiger Lady.”
The Warren County Prosecutor’s Office says that it will provide more details at a news conference on Friday. But officials say that the victim was a teenager missing out of Pennsylvania. Prosecutor James Pfeiffer said investigators determined the female was from Coatesville, Pennsylvania. Her name has not been released.
The teen’s body was found off Interstate 80 in Knowlton Township near the Pennsylvania border on Oct. 26, 1991. Her death was ruled a homicide, but investigators were never able to determine how she died.
The prosecutors will be joined at the news conference by the State Police Office of Forensic Sciences, Center for Human Identification, BODE Technologies and the Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Pfeiffer has made it a priority to use DNA technology to help solve cold case homicides since he took office last year.
