    On Wednesday, January 30, 2002, at approximately 4:30 p.m., the Illinois State Police responded to a complaint concerning the discovery of skeletal remains near mile marker 22 on Interstate 64. The complaint originated from workers of the Illinois Department of Transportation who were working in the vicinity and discovered the remains. The skeletal remains were situated off the roadway on the east side of the Silver Creek overpass in rural Mascoutah, Illinois.

    The autopsy could not determine the cause of the death and it is believed that the victim has been deceased for several months. She is thought be a victim of serial-killer Maury Troy Travis, who is also a suspect in the homicides of two other unidentified victims; 334UFIL and 302UFIL. Police believe the three were raped, tortured and killed by Travis, with some of the slayings videotaped. But Travis never identified the three women, and he hanged himself in a St. Louis jail cell three days after he was charged with three other killings.
