  • Case History

    The victim was located at the rear of the Pilot Travel Center at I-70 and Route 37 in Licking County. An autopsy revealed that she had engaged in sexual activity not long before she was killed. Police believe she may have frequented truck stops.

    A sketch and her description were distributed to police departments and 3,200 truck stops across the United States.

    In March 1991, the Ohio attorney general's office set up a task force to investigate slayings of at least 11 women whose bodies had been dumped along highways in four states, including Ohio, between 1985 and 1990. Authorities said most of the slain women were known or suspected prostitutes who frequented truck stops.

    She was buried on June 18, 1990 in Spring Grove Cemetery at the county's expense.
