Circumstances of Discovery

The victim's skeletal remains were discovered in a wooded area north of I-10 near the Holt exit.

The victim was believed to have been hitchhiking. She is understood to have caught a ride from the Tampa Bay area, and may have had connections to Miami. Allegedly the victim was trying to travel to Reno, Nevada.

The suspect in the case, Keith Hunter Jesperson, confessed to the murder. He was not sure, but thought her name was possibly Suzanne, Suzette, or Sue. According to Jack Olsen's book, "I: The Making of a Serial Killer," Jesperson thought the unidentified woman might also be named Suanna, Susannah, or Sushanna (or Shoshana). He also noted that she was carrying around things like bark and moss and he wondered if she might have been some sort of fortune-teller. She also carried a music device (boom box or Walkman), which Jesperson later gave to his friend.

She is victim number six on the Happy Face Killer's list.
