Despite the perfect condition of her teeth, there were several distinctive characteristics that could help to identify her: A tooth in the upper right side of her mouth was chipped, but it is unknown if the chip occurred before or after death.
One front tooth was short and stubby compared to the same tooth on the other sign (unknown which tooth). She still had one of her upper baby teeth behind the adult tooth, i.e. the adult tooth had grown in but the baby tooth had not fallen out (unknown which tooth). She also had one upper tooth that was 90% rotated (unknown which tooth).
Fingerprints: Not available.

Clothing: Gitano jeans (size 9-10), Fruit of the Loom panties (size 7), and a black Stop Light California short-sleeve, button-down shirt with an attached floral vest. She wore no socks, shoes or bra.
Additional Personal Items: There was a penny in each jeans pocket. It is unknown if the pennies were left on purpose, or simply disregarded when her killer was emptying her pockets.
The victim was found lying face down in a stream bed by Road 535 in a remote area of Monroe Township by teenagers who were crossing under a railroad trestle looking for berries. They observed something lying in the stream which they thought was a deer, but upon further examination discovered it was a body. The area is approximately three miles south of I-80 and is not a well-traveled road.
Authorities are convinced there are individuals in Clarion County who had contact with the woman and can help state police identify her and her killer. They do not believe the woman is from the county or the immediate area, but believe she was brought to the area by a local individual. They also believe she was in Clarion County at most a month, before she was killed.
On Sunday, May 27 - Memorial Day Weekend - about 5,100 people attended a day-long, outdoor rock concert about 15 miles from where Jane Doe was found. The concert, called Music Alley, featured rock bands The Stand; Down To The Wire; Lawyers, Guns & Money; B.E. Taylor and Cleveland. It was held on a farm only 5 minutes from Exit 6 of I-80 and drew crowds from Pittsburgh, Ohio and beyond. There are no indication that she attended the concert.
In the summer of 2002, authorities received an anonymous letter about the girl. Law Enforcement put out a plea, asking the author of letter contact them again, but the writer never responded.
She has been nicknamed "Penny Doe."
