State Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a woman found dead in the Charles River early this morning.

Members of the State Police Underwater Recovery Unit and troopers with Troop H responded to the Harvard Bridge at 6:20 a.m. on an eyewitness report of a woman who had jumped into the water.  The police pulled out her remains shortly after the call.

“She wasn’t carrying any identification,” Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said. “The public’s assistance may be our best chance of finding and notifying her family.”

The woman is described as a black female about 5’4” tall and slightly under 110 pounds.  Her age was not determined, but police say she looks young.  Her hair is shaved on the sides, with a longer tuft on the top.  She has a tattoo of a musical note on her left upper chest, and is wearing a gold ring on her right nmiddle finger inscribed with “1987 AS Newbury” on the outside and “MJ” on the inside.  Upon removal from the water, she was wearing a black leather jacket, a black T-shirt, black sweatpants or fleece pants, and black tennis shoes.

Anyone who may be able to identify this woman should call the Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit at 617-727-8817
