    canada Police seek publicís help identifying woman, North Vancouver

    Police seek publicís help identifying woman whose remains were found in North Van in 2012

    Homicide investigators have released a 3D facial reconstruction of a Jane Doe whose remains were found near a North Vancouver foot path nearly two years ago.

    The womanís remains were found off a gravel pathway in a wooded area in the 2000-block Curling Road on August 18, 2012.



    Police have continued to investigate the case as a homicide because efforts were made at the scene to conceal the remains. Investigators believe the remains had likely been at the site not more than six months.

    They have been working to solve the case, but have not been able to identify the woman, who does not match any missing persons report.

    The victim, believed to have been in her mid-20s to early-40s, had shoulder-length, wavy black hair, a small frame and was about 5-foot-2 to 5-foot-6 in height.

    She had a back injury that involved two broken vertebrae months or years prior to her death, said police, and she may have required a visit to the ER and a brace at the time.

    Police also released photos of the victimís teeth, which showed discoloration on the upper front teeth and would have been noticeable up close.

    At the time of her death, she was wearing a black VS Miss skinny jeans and brown Adidas shoes. The items of clothing were only sold in Europe or online, said police.

    Anyone with information about the womanís identity is asked to call police at 1-877-551-4448 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.

    This was the sketch made 2 years ago:




    Also a picture of her teeth and clothing:







    Jeans and logo





    Adidas shoes were brown, not black. Police said the clothing appears to only be sold in Europe or possibly online. Logo says Miss on the end, it's not on this picture VS.Miss

    VS.Miss, not a very expensive brand, also while searching google, not a famous brand either. ( Makes me wonder why you would buy it online from a seller in another country, the costs of sending, the risk the pants wouldn't fit properly, the costs for sending it back to the seller)

    I found advertisements and stores selling the jeans in: Germany (also on ebay), Switzerland, Poland, France, Netherlands, UK (amazon and some other websites), and Nigeria. In France and Nigeria the websites are most rare;

    Exept for the dimple in her chin, and her age, as she would have been 54 in 2012, her sketch and teeth could maybe match Wendy Whitehead.
    She is a woman from the UK, went to live in the Netherlands with her husband, and went missing in 2001. She was in a violent relationship, her passport was missing, bankaccount untouched, husband said she took off, not much of a chance this being her, but who knows..

    Still trying to find missing persons from Europe who might fit the sketch, or the clay face reconstruction..From the clay face reconstruction I would say she would be from eastern Europe, mostly Greece, because of her cheekbones and the nose. I still can't find any of the Adidas shoes in brown, as if they were rare somehow?

    Sure looks like a good match, especially the teeth.

    UPDATE: Female victim of 2012 homicide identified, police look for clues




    The remains of the victim of the North Shore homicide dating back to 2012 have now been identified.

    The woman, who went under the name of “Jane Doe,” has been identified as 31-year-old Fatemah (Sara) Norouzy-Pooresfahany.

    Her remains were found off of a gravel pathway in North Vancouver in August 2012.

    Norouzy-Pooresfahany is originally from Iran.

    She was living in North Vancouver with her mother for several years.

    They both left Canada to return to Iran.

    In December 2011, Sara returned to Canada by herself.

    She had minimal contact with her mother after she returned to Canada and in September of this year, her mother returned to Canada to look for her daughter.

    Norouzy-Pooresfahany’s mother got in touch with the North Vancouver RCMP, which ultimately resulted in IHIT getting involved.

    The victim’s identity was confirmed through DNA analysis.

    Sara had no fixed address, but was known to frequent between Burnaby and North Vancouver.

    She would occasionally stay at homeless shelters.

    Investigators believe Sara was last alive at the end of July. Her remains were located less than three weeks later.

    IHIT is now looking for any information in connection with her death. They are looking to speak with anyone who has any information about Sara’s lifestyle, identify associates and friends and determine what led up to her final days.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT tipline at 1-877-551-4448, or, if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
