She was believe to have been between 5 feet and 5 feet 3 inches tall.

Police also released images of the yellow striped top she was said to be wearing when her body was found.  

The county medical examiner’s office said she had been dead for two to four months when she was found on November 4 1982. 

Detective Lt. Shaun Spillane told The Daily News that year: ‘We don’t know who she is, how she died or where she died.’

Hemlock needles are said to have been found in her clothing at the time, suggesting she had been in the woods before her death.  

Anyone with information is asked to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers on 1-800-244-TIPS or to call 911.
