The Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's
assistance in identifying a young woman whose charred remains
were discovered at the Greyhound Rock County Park.
A park visitor discovered the remains of the woman, who is believed
to be in her mid-teens to early 20s, in the parking area of the
park on Saturday at 7:45 a.m., the sheriff's office reported.
Investigators believe the woman was killed at a different location
before her remains were dropped off at the park, which is located
off state Highway 1 just north of Davenport.
According to the sheriff's office, the woman, who was probably
a runaway or missing person, was likely set on fire in an effort
to destroy evidence.
The remains indicate that the woman was about 5 feet 2 inches
tall with a petite build and long wavy hair.
Anyone with more information regarding the identity of the woman
is asked to contact the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office at
