Circumstances of Discovery

Skeletal remains of an adult female and fetus were located 10 feet from a roadway in a wooded area north of a state fishing access and boat launch road in the Town of Huron, NY. This area is midway between Rochester and Syracuse, NY. There is access to Lake Ontario from this location. Police believe the assailant dumped the body in the location, most likely in June or early July of 2002.

This case is one of six unsolved homicides of woman in the area over the previous two years, but no confirmed connection has been made. Investigators have interviewed residents in the area as well as doctors who might have treated the woman during her pregnancy.

She may have been a migrant worker.
