50 years later, case still unsolved after woman's body found in a bag near Kingman

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help to solve a cold case after a woman's body was found in a canvas bag east of Kingman 50 years ago.

On January 23, 1971, an unidentified woman was found in a desert area next to a dirt road two miles east of Highway 93 on Hackberry Road.

She was inside of a white canvas sack with the words "Deer-Pak Ames Harris Neville Co." printed in green. It was tied with a white cotton rope, officials say.

The woman, who remains unidentified to this day, was estimated to be 40 years old. She was 5'4" and weighed 125 to 140 pounds with curly brown hair.
