The Massachusetts State Police and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children have released a new facial reconstruction picture from a forensic artist of an unidentified girl who was found dead in Chelsea more than 17 years ago.
The body of the unidentified female was found on Crest Avenue on Nov. 13, 2000.
The victim is believed to be between the ages of 17 and 25 at the time of her death. She is described as a medium-to-light skin black female with a possible mix of Asian, Cape Verdean or Indian decent.
She did not have any scars or tattoos, but was wearing purple nail polish on her toenails.
State police have identified and arrested a suspect in the homicide.
That suspect, who was not identified by police, stated that the victim was involved in sex trafficking at the time of her death. She also identified herself as "Lisa" and may have been from the Philadelphia area.
