Police ask for public’s help to identify deceased woman

MIAMI (WSVN) - Miami Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a woman who was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds to the head.

The victim is described as being around 40 or 50 years old. She was about 5 feet 5 inches tall and around 100 pounds. The woman has red hair and was wearing sneakers, a gold necklace, gray tank top and blue jeans. Her thumbnails were also about three inches long and decorated with glitter.

A neighbor called police at around 4:30 a.m. after hearing shots fired in the 1800 block of Southwest 14th Terrace, according to Miami Police. When police arrived, they found the victim dead on the sidewalk.

“I hear three shots, and because I live by myself, I was scared,” said neighbor Nidia Andrade. “I was looking through the window and everything, but I didn’t see. But the neighbor was the one who called me and said, ‘Nidia, you have a body in front of your house. I said, ‘Oh my God.'”

The victim did not have any money or identification in her pockets. Authorities do not have a suspect and have not identified the body.

If you have any information that might help identify this woman, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
