    Case History

    The victim was located 8 miles west of Decatur, Arkansas off of Highway 102 in Rogers, Arkansas on May 7, 1990. This area is close to the Oklahoma and Missouri state lines.
    Several bones were recovered along with what appeared to be shotgun wadding. Buckshot pellets (#4) were found in the ground under the skull. A neighbor reported seeing a fire in the area in February 1990, but never went to investigate. He believed someone was burning trash.
    Investigators believe the victim or the bones may have been run over with a vehicle to make identification difficult or impossible. After the victim had been shot, she was set on fire. There wasn't enough remains to provide for a reconstruction.

    The overkill & burning makes me think the killer is either a pimp or a an abusive partner.

    Coger's father, Larry, a former Huntsville pharmacist, was convicted in 1994 of killing an exotic dancer in Fayetteville and trying to burn her body in a Madison County creek bed.

    I think the Jane Doe (judging by the listed medical conditions) may have been involved in a sport that required running on a regular basis.

    Also a little more approximation on the location. The site of discovery is listed in a newspaper (Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette) as being on Blue Bird Road, which is closer to the Oklahoma state line.

    This poor woman's story makes me very sad.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)
