New Hampshire State Police want the public’s help in identifying a woman who was found dead on the side of I-89 north in Hopkinton, New Hampshire in the early hours Monday morning.
Authorities released a description of the woman, as well as a photo of a tattoo located on the left side of the small of her back, in the hope that someone may recognize her.
The photo, shared below, which authorities enhanced for clarity, shows a tattoo of a bird feather with small birds flying out of it.
