  • Case History

    A school teacher driving along Highway 91 near Colquitt Ford Road discovered the victim in a ditch, 15 miles south of Albany on May 24, 1985. She was alive but unconscious when discovered. She died eight days later from her injuries. A white pillow was by her side. Investigators believe she was either thrown or fell from a vehicle, possibly the back of a truck. There was no indication that she had been raped or attacked.

    Her body was exhumed in 2012 for DNA collection. She is buried in the Newton Cemetery. Her headstone reads "Jane Doe - Died June 1, 1985."

    In 2014, bone from the decedent was submitted for stable isotope analyses of oxygen and strontium isotope ratios. The oxygen isotope ratio provided information on the decedent's drinking water (thus location) in the 8 to 10 years preceeding her death. Coupled with the strontium isotope ratio, it further narrowed the possible geographical locations which include:

    1. In New England states, including portions of Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine; or
    2. In mid-Atlantic states, including portions of New York, southwestern Pennsylvania, and eastern West Virginia; or
    3. West of the Mississippi River, including portions of New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, and Oregon.

    The predictions of the analyses excluded states in the Southeast (including Georgia), the Midwest, and the Mountain West.

    View the Geographical Information System (GIS) map representing the geographical locations that are consistent with the oxygen isotope ratio.

The areas in red on the second map represent where she most likely lived in the 8 to 10 years before her death.
