Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (AP) - A woman found slain a quarter century ago in Florida has been identified after relatives read about her case on a sheriff's Web site for unidentified victims.

Officials in the Broward Sheriff's Office said Monday that the brother and sisters of Mary Ann Lambert led them to a positive identification of the woman's remains through the ``Found and
Forgotten'' Program. Lambert's body was found in a field in Pompano Beach in September 1983. She was 21 and police won't say how she died.

Authorities say a key clue was a front tooth that Lambert chipped as a child growing up in Brooklyn, N.Y. Partial fingerprints that were resubmitted to a state lab in 2008 were also important. Detectives hope the break could help them solve the killing.
