SAN DIEGO — Authorities asked the public Thursday for help in identifying a young woman whose body turned up on Pala Indian Reservation nearly three decades ago.

JaneDoeThe decomposed remains were found down an embankment alongside Old Temecula Road on Oct. 1, 1986, according to sheriff’s officials. A cause of death could not be determined.

The body was that of a white woman believed to have been between 18 and 20 years old when she died. The body was dressed in blue-and-white-striped pants, a white sweater and white boots.

The woman had a number of tattoos, including one of a red rose above her right breast; a red heart on her inner left breast; a butterfly and a swastika on her right buttock; a motorcycle wheel with a wing and “H & D” on her left buttock; a red lightning bolt on the right side of her groin; the phrase “Lovin’ Stuff” on her left hip; and a band of flower-like shapes encircling her left wrist.

Investigators have created a computer-reconstructed image of the woman’s possible facial features.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477 or contact the agency online at Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
