Metro police Friday identified a murdered woman whose body they said was burned beyond recognition.
Through dental records, police identified the body of Saret Vit, 22, of Mainsail Lane in Hermitage. The autopsy suggests Vit was murdered before her body was set on fire.
A 911 caller at 9:25 Thursday night reported finding the body on fire in a field at the intersection of Brick Church Pike and Knight Road.
Police earlier told The City Paper they had an idea of who the victim was, therefore making it easier to quickly match dental records and move forward with the investigation.
Detectives from the North Precinct are working to develop suspects and a motive.
