Police: Body found near interstate was female

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Police in northern Kentucky say a body found in the wood line along Interstate 75 last week was that of a white female.

Kenton County Police Chief Brian Capps told The Kentucky Enquirer (http://bit.ly/19m82Xu) that a forensic anthropologist determined the gender after conducting a second autopsy on Tuesday. The woman was estimated to be about 30 years old.

He said DNA or dental records would be used in an effort to determine an identity, which could take several weeks.

Mowing crews found the partially decomposed body near truck scales on the southbound side of the roadway.
