Clothing & Personal Items
The victim's body was located off the shoulder of Porter Road, a rural area in Bear, New Castle County, Delaware. This location is just a few miles away from Interstate 95 and US Highway 40.
Her legs were stuffed inside of a large white cloth commerical laundry bag (24" X 36") which bore the markings "Bag O - Storage. American Laundry. Dry Cleaning. EX4 5277." The laundry bag was found to be from a laundry and dry cleaning company located in Trenton, New Jersey.
Initially, it was believed that she had died as a result of a botched abortion. It is now known that she died from not receiving medical care for an infection.
Recent ancestry testing suggests she may be of European, Italian, Greek, or Jewish descent. DNA was compared with genealogy websites and revealed a maternal connection with relatives in Virginia and North Carolina, but no one contacted knows who the victim is.
She is buried in Potter's Field in Delaware.
