The gruesome discovery was made at about 11:45 p.m. on the 3500 block of South Cravens Road on the west side of the lake.

Fort Worth police said patrol officers found a fire 30 yards from the road and discovered it was a body burning.

Officers were able to quickly put out the fire, but investigators hope the victim's tattoos may help lead to her identity.

Officials said the woman was approximately five-feet, five-inches tall and 118 pounds. She had a metal stud in her left nostril, a tattoo of a heart knot on her right lower leg and a tattoo of a flower with stars on top of her left ankle.

Police said she appears to have brown hair and was wearing sparkly mauve toenail polish. Also, the lower first molars have root canals on both sides.

Anyone with information regarding the victim's identity is asked to call Fort Worth homicide investigators at 817-392-4340.
