Orlando police officers are seeking clues in the death of woman, whose dismembered body was discovered in Lake Underhill on Monday.

Officers on Tuesday placed signs around the lake, reaching out to the public for any details.  They feel someone may have seen or heard something that could give them some leads.

“During the week, I'm here at 5 a.m., and there's a bunch of people here jogging," said jogger David Rosen, "mostly the same people you see every day.”

“It's definitely appalling," jogger Jeremy Rivera added.  "Stuff like that doesn't usually happen around here, because this lake is so populated with runners and walkers and joggers.”

Still, they say this crime won't stop them from enjoying the park and looking out for one another.

“Just keep coming out here,” Rosen said, “and if I see anything going on, I won't be the guy that just walks by. So if I’m here, they're safe if I have anything to say about it.”

Police describe the victim as a black woman in her early 30s, standing between 5 feet, 7 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches in height, and weighing a little more than 200 pounds.  

Investigators have released a photograph of a shirt worn by the victim, in the hopes that it might bring any witnesses forward.  

Orlando Police urge anyone with any information about this murder to please call the Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS (8477).  A $5,000 reward if being offered for tips that lead to an arrest in this case.
