The woman's body was found 1975 but she may have been killed in late Summer or Fall of 1974.
Investigators have never identified her.
"We know a lot about her we just don't know who she is," said Detective Sgt. Jerry Williams.
The mystery began when Pattrick Moore found the woman's remains while hunting in Eastern Maury County on Valentine's Day.
His wife Betty Jane Moore says the discovery haunted her husband until the day he died.
"He was saying just imagine somebody's child somebody's brother or sister just left like that to rot," said Moore.
The new picture is giving the murder new attention.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children produced it with the help of a skull scan performed at the Maury Regional Hospital.
The victim is a black female believed to be between 15 and 25 years old when she died.
She's 5'3 to 5'5 tall and would have weighed between 127 and 137 lbs.
Investigators believe she was wearing flowered blue slacks and a red shell blouse when she was killed.
"If we could find somebody that's kin to this person we can match em up through DNA," said Williams.

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
