Police have launched a bizarre ID appeal by releasing pictures of the teeth of a woman who died in a fire.
Investigators in Mainz, Germany, hope that the astonishingly healthy-looking choppers may jog someone’s memory.
The blaze victim was found dead and completely charred under a motorway bridge in the early hours of 15th June.
Baffled police in Rhineland-Palatinate state have no clue as to who she could be.
They say her badly burned remains were spotted under a bridge on the BAB 61 Federal Motorway and near the B 48 Federal Highway.
The BAB 61 (Bundesautobahn 61) is a German motorway that connects the border to the Netherlands near the city of Venlo in the northwest to the interchange with A 6 near the town of Hockenheim.
After the horrific finding, Mainz Criminal Police Department took the baffling decision to release a photo of her striking tooth profile.
They hope friends, relatives or even a dentist might recognise her.
Officers say that despite the victim’s severe injuries, she had impeccably healthy teeth, and a specific dental chart characterised by a short right canine tooth, as well as protruding and forward-pushed canines.
The German police estimated the victim whose hair was tied in a ponytail to be between 20 and 45 years old, and up to 175 cm (68.9 in) tall.
The police along with the public prosecutor assume the woman was a victim of a criminal offence.
People who are able to provide relevant information about the uncommon case are requested to contact the Mainz Criminal Police Department.
