LATTINGTOWN - Police are working to identify the remains of a young woman that were found in Lattingtown yesterday, and they hope a distinct clue will be able to help them.

A gold chain necklace with a pig pendant was found on skeletal remains discovered yesterday afternoon at the end of Sheep Lane. Investigators believe the remains are that of a woman who was between 20 and 30 years old.

Pigs symbolize luck in some cultures, and police say the necklace is stamped 24 karats, a type of gold that is popular among some Asian and Indian communities. Detectives say that in the U.S., 14-karat gold is more popular.

Forensic experts are examining the remains and police are hoping that DNA or dental records could yield a break in the case as well.

Anyone who recognizes the necklace or who may otherwise have information in the case is being urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
