Body found off I-275 has been identified as Hamilton woman, officials say

COLERAIN TOWNSHiP, Ohio -- Officials say they have identified the tattooed body found Aug. 1 as a Hamilton woman, Megan Leanne Anderson.

Workers mowing grass discovered the badly decomposed body on the side of Interstate-275 near I-74.

The Hamilton County Coroner's Office had said foul play was not suspected in the woman's death, but they had asked for help in identifying her. 

Colerain police are continuing to investigate. They ask anyone with information to call them at 513-321-2677.

The woman had several tattoos, including two roses and a vine on her left wrist and writing on the back of her right shoulder that looks like "Budweiser," according to the coroner's office. She also had a tattoo on her neck that may be a nautical star. 

Officials had displayed some of the clothes she was wearing:  a pink bikini swim suit halter-style top (size small) under a dark medium T-shirt, medium size black shorts and size nine black bejeweled sandals. She also had a white metal ring with a pale stone on her left ring finger.

The coroner's office had said she could have been Caucasian, Hispanic or mixed heritage. They estimated she was between 30 and 50 years old and between 5'4" and 5'9" tall with a medium build and straight, medium-length dark to medium-brown hair, some of which may have been highlighted or dyed golden brown.
