PASADENA, Md. (AP) - Anne Arundel County police say human remains found in a wooded area behind a shopping center in Pasadena were those of a young woman, and she was a homicide victim.
Police say the woman was between 18 and 20 years of age, 5-foot-6, with brown hair. She's believed to have died from trauma to the upper body.
The remains were recovered on Monday after a man spotted what appeared to be a human skull behind a shopping center on Ritchie Highway.
Homicide detectives are investigating.
