    Fort Worth police are seeking the public's help in identifying the remains of a woman found in a shallow grave March 20.

    A work crew called police officers to a wooded area near the 7300 block of Calmont where they found what they thought was a human skull.

    Investigators with the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office were called to the scene and confirmed the finding before unearthing more remains buried in a shallow grave.

    While officials have not yet determined how the woman died, they are asking for help in identifying her. 

    The woman is described as having a small frame and standing between 4 feet 9 inches tall and 5 feet 4 inches tall.  She was between the ages of 21 and 35, Hispanic and had layered, long brown hair that was up to 13 inches in length.  The woman  also has a porcelain bridge involving three teeth of the front right incisors and canine.

    Investigators said the woman's death most likely occurred last fall, but could have occurred anywhere from Oct., 2012 to early 2013.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Fort Worth homicide Det. Sullivan at 817-392-4340.
