Fishermen found the victim's nude body on the bank of the North Canadian river, east of Jones. The body had been completely covered with lime to expedite decomposition, however the wrong lime was used and it actually helped preserve the body.
The victim is believed to have been dressed at the time of the murder as a dime was hit by a bullet and driven into her body. Evidence indicates that whoever shot her was walking or running towards her when the shots were fired. It does not appear that she was sexually assaulted.
She is known as "Lime Lady."
