'Footprints in the sand' could be key to identifying woman's body

FAIRMOUNT, OH (FOX19) - Police are hoping an inscribed key ring will help identify a woman's body that was found lying in a Fairmount driveway.

Officers responded to the 1500 block of Knox Street where they began investigating it as a 'suspicious death.'

The woman is described as an African American, possibly in her mid 20's, 5'5" and 170 pounds.

Police said she had a set of 5 keys on a key ring with the inscription "footprints in the sand" on one side and "Whenever a door closes God opens a window" on the other side.

Investigators said they have attempted to identify the woman via the Kroger and Speedway cards with no luck.

The investigation is listed as ongoing by the Cincinnati Police Department's Homicide Unit.
