Deskins was one of three bodies found wrapped in plastic garbage bags in an East Cleveland neighborhood.
Authorities released her identity at a press conference Monday morning.
Deskins was listed in the Northeast Ohio Missing Persons Database effective July 1, 2013.
The press conference held by city officials was part of an investigation surrounding 35-year-old Michael Madison, a registered sex offender suspected in the three murders.
Police exclusively told WKYC early Monday that Madison had confessed to one of the killings. Authorities also say Madison has been cooperative.
The other two victims have not yet been identified.

The medical examiner says the bodies were each in the advanced stages of decomposition and it could take days to determine how they were killed.
After the three bodies were discovered, authorities conducted a search to see if additional remains were in the area of Shaw and Hayden avenues.
After combing through dozens of abandoned homes, the search was called off Sunday.
