LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Texas authorities released facial drawings and sculpting's of a woman found dead along a Panhandle roadside in 1999. The white female was discovered near the town of McLean near Business I-40, just off exit 141, by a worker mowing in the area on August 12, 1999.

Texas Department of Public Safety officials on Wednesday released the forensic reconstructions in hopes of identifying the woman to aid the investigation into the death. A DPS release says foul play was never ruled out.

Because two rings with purple stones that look like amethysts were found on her, investigators named the woman "Amethyst Doe."

Her four lower front teeth were missing while she was alive. She was between the ages of 33 and 45. She weighed between 130 and 150 pounds and might have been pregnant at one time.

Her right leg and foot were deformed and shorter than the left. The right ankle had been fused with a screw, possibly causing a limp.
