    According to the link above someone is speculating the Head found in the Botanical Gardens in the Cement bucket could be associated with this headless and handless body...I find it a bit interesting I wonder if LE has tried to match them also?

    Uhm Facebook page of this Jane Doe cites estimated date of death 1900-1960, but Namus cited 1980, is a strange discrepancy.
