Authorities recently created a facial reconstruction photo of a female found dead in Houston last month. Although dozens of tips have poured in, she hasn’t been identified yet, and police are asking the public for assistance.

The Houston Chronicle reports that the  National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) created the picture to help Harris County, Texas, officials get closer to identifying the girl. She was found on February 16 at the 9900 block of Sharpcrest Street in West Houston. She’s between the ages of 15 to 25.  According to The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, the victim died from numerous gunshot wounds to her head, neck, and torso area.

A medical examiner’s office release noted that the victim was Hispanic, weighed around 108 pounds, and was five feet tall. When found, she was wearing three metal rings and had pierced ears. One of the rings had an elephant pattern, another had reflective stones, while another had a leaves pattern.
