Circumstances of Discovery

The victim's decomposing remains were discovered by Lebanon County deputy game protectors in a wooded area off Moonshine Road, or Route 443. The remains were not buried but covered with tree branches, brush and a 48"x32.5" piece of green plastic. A white seal on the plastic read "National Sanitation Foundation, Testing Laboratory 8505." According to records, such a testing laboratory did not exist.

During the time of the discovery, four girls were reported missing from the area. All have been located. Investigators are looking at the possibility that the victim may have been from out of the area.
