Highland Park — The FBI and Highland Park police are asking the public for help to identify a woman who was found slain in an alleyway in 1996.

Officials said the woman, whose remains were found May 20, 1996, was 15-22 years old and may have been biracial.

Her remains were found near a white shirt with yellow and black smiley faces, a white skirt, white socks and low-cut, black and white gym shoes. She was wearing a “Teddy Bear” watch with a leather band on her left arm.

FBI agents released a sketch of the victim and a picture of the watch.
