Case dates back to 2006
August 19, 2009

It was the grisly discovery made back in October 2006 by a man walking in a field near South Service and Holt Roads that has Durham Police stumped. The man stumbled upon a human skull in the late morning of Oct. 27. He notified police immediately from his cell phone and since then police have been trying to identify the remains. A post mortem examination completed by a Forensic Pathologist in Toronto has determined the remains are female. Police have reconstructed images of the woman’s face using computer- generated models as well as a three-dimensional clay reconstruction model in attempt to identify her. This is one of the first cases in the province where both clay and computer generated reconstruction techniques have been used to identify human remains, say police.

She is believed to be between 18 and 30 years of age and is caucasian. Durham Police released the information to various public websites like the OPP Project Resolve, the Doe Network and Ontario’s Missing Adults in the early stages of the investigation but to date, no identification has been made on the remains, police explain. After the man found the bones, police conducted an extensive search of the area, which lasted for more than one month, ending in November 2006.

Police also found a woman’s digital watch, a 1980 Canadian penny, a piece of red ribbon and a red, small, heartshaped object. If you have any information about the remains contact Project Resolve at 1-877-934-6363, visit the website, or contact Detective Nash of the Durham Regional Police at 1 -(888) 579-1520 ext. 5402.
