New photos of woman found in field dead

Albuquerque, NM {KRQE} - Investigators know a lot about her, they just don't know who she is.
They also don't know how she ended up dead on the side of a highway.

Now investigators have put out new pictures of her.
Jane Doe was found in this field, near the Los Lunas Albertson's last October.
Originally investigators hoped a picture of her cross necklace and a sketch would lead to a quick identification, but months of checking missing persons reports have led no where.
We've checked dental records against her, Dr. Peter Loomis with the Office of the Medical Investigator (OMI) said.

They have ruled out nine missing women from around the country.
Loomis has posted new pictures on a national unidentified remains website, namus .
A couple pieces of jewelry, one a necklace a cross, and then a broach that was affixed to the bodice of her dress, and then even her sandals, we have those, said Loomis.
And there is a picture of her face. Investigators said she's in her late 30's or early 40's, with reddish-brown hair, and about 5 feet 7 inches.
Her jewelry was unique, but that's not all.
Loomis said, She had extensive dental work, very expensive dental work including a series of dental implants in her mouth.
Investigators still don't know how she died. The final report from OMI hasn't been completed.

But, Dr. Loomis said this case has more clues than most other Jane Doe cases he deals with.
It is unusual and it is a little frustrating, Loomis said. I really feel this woman will be identified, it's just a matter of time.
The woman was wearing a black sun dress with a maroon shirt over it when she was found.
Investigators believe she may be from out of state or even out of the country.
Medical investigators have been working to enter cold cases into that unidentified remains website, and it's paying off so far.
In the last month they have been able to identify seven bodies. All of those cases were more than a decade old.
