Clothing & Personal Items
The victim was found partially decomposed on October 6, 1995, next to the Tolland State Forest, in Tolland, in western Massachusetts along the Connecticut border. There was no identification on the body, which was discovered by a camper who was filling his trailer with drinking water. She had no sleeping gear. Authorities believe the woman was shot in the same area where her body was found - near a station where campers dispose of trash and sewage.
An FBI data bank found no matches for her fingerprints, indicating she probably had never been arrested. Along with contacting police nationwide, the authorities have especially canvassed the New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and New England areas.
She may have spent time in Albany area of New York. Isotopes from her hair show that she could have spent the better part of a year in the Capital District. She was wearing a style of sweatshirt that was only sold in three stores in this part of the country: all three of those stores were in the Capital Region. The sweatshirt could only have been purchased in 1994 at a now defunct store called The Stockroom. The Stockroom had locations at either the Rotterdam Square Mall, Wilton Mall or the Northway Mall. The victim also had a pack of Carlton cigarettes that had a New York state tax stamp. The stamp itself was used by a company in Latham, which distributed cigarettes throughout the Capital Region. Evidence links this case with another homicide; eight days earlier, another "Jane Doe" was discovered behind a shopping plaza in New Britain, Connecticut. Each woman had been shot in the head and has remained unidentified. The women may be related.
