BALTIMORE, MD - The Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police are asking for the public's help to identify a deceased homeless woman found last month near the I-95 Exit 57 ramp at O'Donnell Street in Baltimore so that family notification may be made.

MDTA officers responded to a welfare check on Dec. 7, 2017, and located the woman's body in a makeshift tent. At the time, the woman reportedly had not been seen for at least two weeks. No foul play is suspected.

MDTA officers believe the unidentified women had been living in the area since Aug. 2017. She is described as between 40- and 60-years-old, 5'3" in height and weighing 90 pounds. She reportedly spoke both English and Spanish.
