Sheriff Maxey Cerliano and the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office request information on a cold case involving human remains.

On May 21, 2002, human remains, including a skull, was discovered by a road construction crew on Highway 135, south of Swamp City Road in the Gladewater area. The remains were examined by a forensic anthropologist and they were determined to be of a white female, 17 to 25 years of age, about 5’1 to 5’4’ in height, slim or petite build and an unrepaired cleft palate. Due to the condition of the bones, it was believed that she died about two years earlier, in 2000.

Several months ago, a scan of the skull was sent to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Virginia for reconstruction using 3D technology.

Those results have returned and attached are images of the girl.

Anyone with information regarding this Jane Doe are asked to contact Kirk Haddix at (903) 236-8411 or Crime Stoppers at (903) 236-STOP.

Also I believe she had some missing teeth on the top front row that was noticeable when she smiled or laughed. But she did have some deformedy in the teeth that remained.

In 1984-1985 is when I knew this carmen with the cleft lip and she looked to be about 17 then so that would make her to be around 32 years old in the year 2000. But she would defenantly look a lot younger than 32 I'm sure even at that age. Her face would be a little more chubby on the bottom. The owner of the golden dragan had a daughter that ran the place and knows just about everyone. I don't remember her name though or the owner.

she looks like a girl I knew who hanged at the Golden Dragon and another bar on that strip on Hwy 80 in Longview TX. The girl was hispanic and had the same kind of cleft palate and she wore a pony tale sometimes with shoulder link hair. I am 5.4 so she would be around the 5.1 ft. to be more accurrate. She was also petite. Looked like a kid at the time I knew her. If it's the same girl..her name was Carmon. Don't know her last name. But someone will remember the name Carmon with the cleft lip.
