Okla. sheriff hopes to solve 'Lime Lady' killing

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Authorities in Oklahoma are sending out details over social media in hopes of finding clues in the 32-year-old unsolved killing of the so-called "Lime Lady."

On April 18, 1980, the body of a woman was found in the North Canadian River about 20 miles east of Oklahoma City. The woman has never been identified but became known as the "Lime Lady" because her killer used lime in an attempt to speed up the decomposition process.

But police say the lime actually helped preserve the body.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office is sending out tweets as part of a national campaign to draw attention to law enforcement agencies and their cases.

No one has been arrested in the case. Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities.
