Local 15-year death investigation rekindled by reconstruction of victim’s face

Police ask for help identifying woman 

A woman who was found dead in New Brighton 15 years ago has never been identified, but now the image of her face has reemerged through facial reconstruction technologies, and though it’s only a likeness, police are hoping it will lead to new information in the cold case. 

The investigation of the woman’s death began in the fall of 2000, when her body was found by two hikers just off a little-used path in Long Lake Regional Park. Police believe the corpse had been lying there for at least two months by the time it was found Sept. 15.

The New Brighton Department of Public Safety requested assistance from the FBI last year, specifically to have them reassemble characteristics of the woman’s face using facial reconstruction. The image was released to the public last week.

Precinct party caucuses are a week away

Parties prepare for Super Tuesday

Precinct party caucuses are a week away on March 1 — Super Tuesday — when voters in Minnesota and 12 other states will caucus for presidential candidates, among other party business.

The events, which begin at 7 p.m., are run completely by state political parties and deal with internal party business so caucus rules and happenings will vary, district by district.

Roseville Review area Republicans and DFLers who plan to caucus likely live in either House District 42B or 66A; officials in both parties are expecting lots of caucus participation during this presidential election year.

Mounds View puts an end to the trash talk

On any given Mounds View street all four city-licensed trash-hauling companies can be seen represented by their garbage bins awaiting pick-up. The City Council has decided not to pursue looking into organized collection, which would essentially reduce the number of garbage trucks on individual residential streets to one truck, while dividing and designating geographical sections of the city to the hauling companies.
