CLEVELAND (AP) - Authorities say the skeletal remains of a woman found in a plastic bag in a Cleveland field last year have been identified with help from an anonymous tipster.

Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas Gilson said Wednesday the body found Oct. 17 by a man searching for scrap was that of 40-year-old Brooke Cameron. Gilson’s office determined last October that she was shot in the head.

A press release including a forensic sketch and information that she was likely of Native American or Asian descent was released in July. Authorities said an anonymous tipster contacted police the next day, enabling a tentative identification that became positive with the help of forensic dentistry and X-rays.

Police haven’t identified a possible suspect or motive in the Cleveland woman’s death.
