    Wish there was a better photo of the medallion. It looks like a fairly specific Marian devotion.

    This Jane Doe, known as "Gypsy" appears to be one of William Bradford's victims.

    Bradford was a biker and was known to have frequented the Tennessee Bar in Culver City CA in June 1984. He was also known to have taken his victims to the Lancaster area.

    This Jane Doe is said to have worked at the "Tennessee Bar", and her body was found in June 1984 in Lancaster.

    The document linked below details Bradford's crimes, though "Gypsy" Jane Doe is not mentioned. But the details described fit Gypsy's circumstances very closely.

    Bradford is one of the killers who had photo collections of women who police were trying to ID.
