    On March 30th 2010, a family member of Lisa Harris contacted HCSO after seeing the victim’s tattoo displayed by the Tampa Bay media. Detectives met with the family members who provided information and obtained Harris’ medical records.

    Detectives working with the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner’s Office were able to make a positive identification. Cause of death is still pending. 

    On 28 March, 2010 Deputies recovered a deceased female found floating in the Hillsborough River inside the Hillsborough River State Park.  HCSO was notified by two park visitors that they had discovered a body underneath a clump of trees floating in the river. HCSO divers  responded and pulled Harris's body from the river.

    Detectives need anyone who may have information or knowledge of Lisa Harris’ recent activity to contact HCSO at 813-247-8200 or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.

    HCSO would like to thank the Tampa Bay Media in their assistance in this investigation. Your participation in providing the public with the photo of the tattoo was critical in helping detectives identify Lisa Harris.
