    This article written in French, provides more information than the one written in English.

    Here is a representation of her tattoos. The photo is a little graphic, so I transferred the tattoo images onto an image of a live arm.

    The postmortem image of her tattoos is at the following link:

    Thank you so much for putting that thread together and the trouble you went to to make the arm photo more acceptable for posting. The translation from the French was a good idea too, I really hope someone IDs her soon. It's a shame there's nothing in the English press as there are many places up-river Ontario/Vermont/NY from where she was found and possibly that's where she came from? I wish they gave more information about how long she could have been in the water....so sad that weeks go by with no one to claim her....

    Identified. *Warning:* still has postmortem picture of arm. I do not see the point of publishing it after identification has been made. http://tvanouvelles.ca/lcn/infos/faitsdivers/archives/2014/09/20140922-092606.html

    Oh, I am glad she has been identified.

    Yes, a translated text from French often defaults to he/him/his especially when the nouns are masculine. In the first article from September 1st the body had not yet been identified as male or female but 18 days (!) later in the appeal for public help the body was identified as female.

    Sad case, particularly in the absence of any missing person's report.

    Based on what I remember from high school French classes, the pronoun they used, ses, can mean "his/her/its [plural noun]." A headline linked in the article says "une jeune femme" which specifies it's "a young woman." I know, French grammar is confusing.
