About this Case:

The skeletal remains were located by hikers near the Smokehouse Campground on U.S. Forest Service Road 402 (divide Road) on July 7, 1994. The area is commonly called "Windy Point", thus her nickname Jane Doe of Windy Point. the skill was delivered to authorities in a plastic spring water bucket. It showed marked mummification with adherence of tissue to both the internal and external portions of the skill and about the base and face. Searchers recovered an intact humerus and intact scapula, with mummified tissues. there were also portions of spinal cord and the right pelvis, and multiple bone fragments. No antemortem trauma could be identified based on the existing remains. The remains sustained carnivore damage. No identification was found near the remains. The medical examiner whose office conducted the forensic facial reconstruction from her skull found no useful trace evidence. The cause and manner of death are forensically undetermined, but some law enforcement officers suspect foul play. Investigators believe the woman was slain at another location, brought to Windy Point possibly in the fall of 1993 and then covered with tree limbs to conceal her whereabouts.
