CLEVELAND– The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office identified a woman who was found dead in a bag in 2016, but the search continues for her killer.
The woman, 40-year-old Brooke Cameron, of Cleveland, died of a gunshot wound to the head, the medical examiner’s office said. Her body was found in a vacant lot on Dibble Avenue on Oct. 17. 2016.
Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas Gilson said the remains were mostly skeletal and they were unable to determine the woman’s identity. He worked with Dr. Linda Spurlock, an assistant professor of anthropology at Kent State University, for a facial reconstruction and forensic sketch.
After months of asking for the public’s help, an anonymous tipster came forward in July that led to the woman’s name.
“Cases wherein victims go unidentified are especially challenging for investigators and leave families without closure, preventing emotional wounds from beginning to heal,” said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams.
Anyone with information about Cameron’s death is asked to call the Cleveland Division of Police Homicide Unit at 216-623-5464.
