Forensic officials identify skeletal remains of woman found last October

Authorities need help in finding Cold case suspect

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Officials have identified the woman whose remains were found last October.

The victim has been identified as Brooke Cameron, officials announced Wednesday.

She was murdered at least 10 months ago, but many details of her death have been a mystery.

Police found the woman’s remains in a bag on Dibble Avenue last October. She had been shot in the head. Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner Thomas Gilson said her remains were largely skeletal when found. 

Gilson also said Cameron disappeared months before her remains were found. Her family reported her missing when they didn't hear from her in December 2015.

Authorities say they believe she was dead for several weeks before her body was found. Dr. Linda Spurlock, an assistant professor of anthropology at Kent State University, examined the victim's skull for facial reconstruction. A sketch of the woman was released last month.

Additional examination led forensic experts to believe the woman may have been Asian or Native American.

Once the sketch was published by local media, an anonymous tipster reached out to Cleveland Police July 11. 

Officials said Cameron moved to the Cleveland area in 2015 with a boyfriend, who has since been extradited to New Mexico. Cameron remained in Cleveland.

Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said no suspects have been identified relating to Cameron's death.
