Investigators attempt to solve 5-year cold case death of woman in Gravesend

Posted: Updated:

Investigators are still trying to solve the mystery of an unknown woman's death five years after her body was discovered in Gravesend.

The NYPD says a woman's dismembered body was found along a beach at Calvert Vaux Park. They say they have very little details on what happened to her, but that she has a faded tattoo with the name "Monique."

Authorities are trying to figure out if Monique is the name of the victim or possibly someone related to her. They say they hope it will lead them to more information about how the body wound up on the beach, and who is responsible for her death.

The NYPD was at the park Saturday passing out flyers in hopes for information that may crack the case.
