    LAS CRUCES - The Las Cruces Police Department released several photos and Las Cruces Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000, which officials hope will spur tips that help identify the person whose remains were found Sunday off Rinconada Boulevard.

    LCPD released the photos of several pieces of evidence found near the remains. Investigators hope someone will recognize the items collected that, in turn, will help identify the remains. The items include five pieces of jewelry, the label from a coat and a pair of sunglasses. Investigators are also releasing the image of a small piece of paper with the hopes someone might recognize the handwriting.

    The human remains were found Sunday in an undeveloped area off Rinconada Boulevard. The remains were sent to the New Mexico medical investigator’s office but have yet to be positively identified. Investigators have also not been able to determine the gender or approximate age of the individual.

    I doubt this is Janet. Her family would have recognized those items and they wouldn't have posted them publicly.

    One mile away. One. I wish there were better ways to search for people in areas like this.
    Glad she was found. :(

    And I wonder why it would take over a year and a half to identify the remains? :confused:
