    Do you know if there were signs of rape or sexual battery? Also was she fully clothed?

    The two accounts above differ slightly as to clothing - probably because of editing of the origional release. Generally, it is indicated that when found, this girl was wearing the following pieces of clothing:

    a white/beige pullover (either a sweater or description of her shirt)
    short sleeve top,
    Levi brand jeans of beige-yellow color,
    a white bra,
    a brown colored shoe,
    rawhide string necklace with a small round blue object affixed/attatched to it.

    There is no mention of the other clothing which might be expected, such as the other shoe, socks, panties, or jacket. Conclusions cannot be drawn by those omissions, however, because the person who wrote these lists, might simply have left them out. An example being that the bra is mentioned in one site, but not in the other.

    The available press and website reports do not mention whether or not she was raped, or sexually assulted, only that she was strangled to death. Because she had been dead for less than 24 hours when found, it is likely that police investigators did obtain that information from her autopsy.

    It is believed that she was killed elsewhere, and transported to the place where she was found. This might indicate that she was killed in Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia or Virginia as those are the states closest to where she was left. It is possible that she was transported from further away, but the haste in which she was dumped and left in the open would indicate that she was not driven far from where she was killed.

    I have some original articles when she was found. Let me send them to you, Richard.

    The link provides a look at this girl's actual morgue photo. The Doenetwork rendition looks much as she would have appeared in life. While most of the information in this article is posted above, stated for the first time is the cause of death: Strangulation.

    Good to see that the case is still open and active.

    --------------------------------

    From 18 Feb 2004 Article:
    Baltimore County police are seeking the public's help in identifying a young woman who was found murdered on September 12, 1976. Police are releasing a picture of the victim to seek help from the public in identifying the woman.
    Just before 10:30 a.m., a motorist found the woman's body near the roadway in the 5600-block of Dogwood Road in Woodlawn. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner determined the cause of death as strangulation. Detectives launched a thorough investigation but have been unable to identify either the victim or a suspect. It is believed that the woman was killed within the previous 24 hours at another location, and her body was dumped where it was found.

    The victim is described as a white female, in her late teens to mid-twenties, 5' 8", and 159 pounds. She had shoulder-length brown hair, brown eyes, and was wearing a white and beige pullover, short-sleeve top, beige and yellow Levi jeans, and a rawhide string necklace with a small, round, blue pendant. She had a 1 A? inch scar on her left thigh and a tattoo on her right arm just below the shoulder. The tattoo appeared to be the letters JP.

    Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP (1-866-756-2587). Callers can remain anonymous, and those calling Metro Crime Stoppers might be eligible for a cash reward up to $2,000. Information concerning the case is available on the Doe Network's web site at www.doenetwork.org , case number 279UFMD.

    modifying the above link, they must have moved the page. Anyone interested in this case should save her picture, if they move it again I may never find it.

    2003 Newspaper Article...

    Paper: Sun, The (Baltimore, MD)
    Title: Unsolved 1976 killing gets another look
    Date: January 8, 2003

    When a young woman's body was discovered on a road near a cemetery in Woodlawn in 1976, Baltimore County police had hundreds of leads -- people called nearly every day to say that their sister or friend or a dancer they'd seen on the Block resembled the victim, who had been strangled.


    But it has been a long time since anyone has called about the unsolved killing, and even longer since someone has tried to help detectives identify the woman, who remains known simply as Jane Doe.More than 26 years after her death, Baltimore County police tried again yesterday to generate interest in a case that has led them all over the country in search of information to help them figure out who the woman was, who killed her and why.


    "There's no particular lead, no new development in the case," said Bill Toohey, a county police spokesman. Detectives think someone in the area might know something about the case, he said.


    "It happens that way sometimes," Toohey said. "There may be someone still feeling remorse. There may be old relationships that have now broken. It's not unusual for a detective to show up on a doorstep years after [a killing] to see if someone has broken up with the person they were dating back then."


    Police said the woman was probably in her late teens to early 20s when she was killed. Based on the autopsy, they think she was strangled in the 24 hours before her body was found by a passing motorist Sept. 12, 1976, in the 5600 block of Dogwood Road, not far from Lorraine Park Cemetery. Police say her body was probably dumped there.


    The woman had shoulder-length brown hair and brown eyes, a scar on her left thigh and a tattoo on her right arm that appeared to be the letters "JP" but could have represented something else, police said. She was 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighed 159 pounds and wore a white pullover, beige-yellow Levi jeans and a rawhide string necklace with a small, blue object attached.


    This is not the first time county police have revived the case. As recently as 1998, police publicized the killing, hoping to generate new leads.


    "After this much time, it becomes harder and harder because people's memories fade," Toohey said.


    Late last year, county police assigned two veteran homicide detectives, Philip G. Marll and James W. Tincher, to a newly invigorated cold-case squad that is dedicated to old, unsolved killings.


    In the weeks and months after the woman's body was found, police received hundreds of phone calls and tips. Sisters, mothers, landlords, taxi drivers and drug dealers told police they thought they knew who the young woman was. But none of the tips checked out, according to a review of the investigative file.


    Detectives distributed fliers about the woman to dancers and bartenders on The Block, posted them around Fells Point and passed them out at area hospitals, clinics and jails. Missing-person reports, fingerprint and dental records were checked across the country.


    Detectives checked out similarities between the woman's death and cases from as far away as Illinois and California. Investigators accumulated a 6-inch-thick file, but nothing in it brought them much closer to solving the mystery.


    More recently, they added information to the Doe Network, an international Web site of unidentified murder victims, Toohey said.


    Anyone with information about the case is asked to call police at 410-307-2020.
