Original story (Sept. 27):
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A homicide victim whose body was found more than 23 years ago in Northern Pulaski County has finally been identified.
That's according to the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office (PCSO), which says it will reveal the person's name in a Friday afternoon news conference.
The PCSO says the remains were discovered on Feb. 18, 1994 on Settlement Rd. in the Palarm community, which is not far from Maumelle.
We have learned only that the individual was a woman.
Investigators combed through missing person reports, followed many leads and submitted the victim’s fingerprints to the FBI with no results due to deterioration of the skin.
The FBI has since then developed software that can identify fingerprints that are poor in quality and the Arkansas State Crime Lab resubmitted them.
The Sheriff's Office says it will give details about the victim and ask the community for information on the death at Friday's news conference.
