Investigators hope an artist's sketch of what authorities believe the woman looked like will help provide clues about the homicide victim's identity.
The woman's body was found Friday evening near a canal off of Tram Road just outside of the Beaumont city limits.
Investigators say someone on a hunting lease saw an open gate and drove inside to investigate and discovered the body lying on the side of the road near the canal.
Investigators are hoping the sketch of the woman will help provide answers about the woman's identity.
They say the woman is either in her forties or fifties. She was about 5'9" and weighed about 300 pounds.
