Including both murder victims and those who died of other causes, about 40,000 bodies remain unidentified in the United States.

Who Killed Jane Doe? - Tuscaloosa County Jane Doe - Netflix

The body of a white female aged thirty-four to thirty-eight was found in Slaughter Creek, near the Sipsey River in Romulus, Tuscaloosa County, Alabama on April 18, 1982. The victim had been beaten, strangled and sexually assaulted. She was 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighed approximately 110 to 115 pounds. She wore tennis shoes, knitted blue pants, a long-sleeved blue shirt, and white undergarments. It is possible that she was fishing at the area and was killed at the scene, as a disturbance of the earth was found at the location. She had a ruddy complexion (indicating that she regularly engaged in outdoor activity), wore an upper partial denture, may have given birth to a child in the past, and showed evidence of having done manual labor. She had dark-brown, shoulder-length hair and brown eyes. She also had a visible scar under her right eyebrow. Her remains were exhumed in 2013 for additional examination and to obtain a DNA sample.
