Over the years, the state's medical examiner's office used a variety of DNA techniques to try to identify Young. Those tools predicted that Young had brown skin, brown eyes and black hair. It also determined that Young was likely of West African, South African and Northern European descent.

The Portland Police Bureau has been notified about the breakthrough in the case and "encouraged to conduct further investigation to determine, if possible, the circumstances of Sandy Young's death," Oregon State Police said.

But in a interview with a Portland TV station KOIN 6, Young's nephew, Lorikko Burkett Gibbs, said there are still a lot of unanswered questions.

"I know it's still being investigated, but I think there needs to be more investigation about this," Gibbs said. "The person who did this needs to pay for what they've done."
