Margaret River link to Belanglo body

The remains of a woman found in the Belanglo State Forest two years ago may have links to the Margaret River region.

Police revealed today that they had received information that a woman whose remains were found in the New South Wales forest in 2010 may have lived and worked in the Margaret River area in the decade prior to the discovery of her remains.

Information received by police indicates that the woman may have been a backpacker or worked in a vineyard, and may have been of German or European background.

The woman's remains were found near Daly's Pool in the Belanglo State Forest by trail bike riders in August 2010.

They have since been extensively forensically examined and a reconstruction carried out by an anthropologist has led police to release an image of what they believe the woman looked like.

It is believed that she was aged from 13 to 25-years-old, and may have died anytime within the last 10 years.

The length of her hair is approximately the length that it may have been at the time of her death.

A distinctive t-shirt was also located at the site, with the word 'Angelic' written on the front.

Anyone who can assist in this investigation is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
