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.

Suzy Tomlinson's bear books address 'troubles' younger kids encounter
Teddy isn't just a teddy bear, at least not in a local author's recent book series. 
Sure, he's a little stuffed animal who talks, but Suzy Tomlinson of Shoreview created this bow-tied bear and his friend David, a little boy, in part to portray her relationship with her brother, David Dobis, who died of stomach cancer in 2002 at the age of 53.
