Detectives hope a ring can help ID a woman.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Orange County deputies are offering a $5,000 reward as they try to identify a badly decomposed body that was found earlier this month in an Orange County condominium.

A death investigation was launched Aug. 8 after after the owner of the Tymberskan condo on Tymberwood Lane noticed a foul smell and called authorities.

Orange County sheriff's deputies said the body was that of a black woman who was 5 feet 3 inches tall and 20 to 40 years old. She had a tongue ring and a silver ring on her left hand.

Orange County sheriff's spokeswoman Jane Watrel said the case is currently a death investigation and detectives are trying to ID the woman.

"We have a mystery on our hands," Orange County sheriff's spokeswoman Jane Watrel said. "We need your help. We are trying to figure out who owned these (rings). We hope this will jog someone's memory."

The manner and cause of death are not known.

"We're waiting on the medical examiner," Orange County sheriff's Detective Brian Sabelli said.

Sabelli said it's not known how long the body had been in the condo, which had no signs of forced entry.
