    NC - Wake Co., Female 474UFNC, 35-45, burned alive, may be Canadian, Apr'68

    More than 35 years after a young woman was burned alive, investigators say they have gotten the break they needed in the case. They say they have a suspect, but it is just one part of the decades-old mystery because they still do not know the identity of the victim.

    On April 27, 1968, a woman in a green and white polka dot dress was seen walking down Ten Ten Road in Southern Wake County.

    The women believed a farmer was burning something until the next day when the woman's body was discovered in that spot.

    The whereabouts of her remains are unknown, but investigators say they have hair and blood samples from the original investigation. They also have a description.

    "I know her hair was dark brown with a small amount of gray," Stewart said. "She had a surgical scar below the left side of her naval. She wore a size 7-1/2 shoe. Her blood type was A-positive."

    There are also pictures of a gas can, matches, hair spray and other personal items found at the scene.

    How do they not know where her remains are ? They did find her body right? Are they saying it is unknown where she was buried after she was found ?

    I think what they are trying not to say is that they lost her. She may have been cremated, she may have been buried in an unmarked grave and they lost the paperwork documenting the info about the location. It is terrible, but this is not the first time.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Mysteriew - you edited the article so much it doesn't make sense until you actually go to the link and read it.

    Copyright/TOS restrictions. I mainly wanted to get the info in about her description.

    This one's interesting-just like all the other UID cases from the 50's and 60's and older

    Her remains could have gotten lost/misplaced OR they were moved without the knowledge of the investigating department/office

    Seems like she should have some sort of nickname, like polka dot Jane Doe or something. Ancestry.com has really updated their North Carolina archive collection, I'll look later and see if I can find anything about her, or anyone missing that matches her description.

    I didn't find anything about this woman in archives last night, but I did find this article, it says she was burned alive. Doesn't it seem as though she was packed to leave, and maybe if they could uncover her identity they could get the full story, why she was leaving, where she was going...also some of those cosmetic products found with her seem sort of expensive for that time period, I wonder also if she had mail-ordered them.

    The Revlon item that they have missing the first letters is Silk of Intimate. I think it was a perfumed lotion.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everyone's got one. This one is mine.

    The makeup definitely would have been good for the time. I wonder if she was a nightclub singer or dancer? It would explain why her makeup was of better quality than the rest of her kit. I wonder what happened to her suitcase? It seems that, with that much makeup, there should have been a suitcase as well, unless she carried a really large handbag that burned up more than the contents.

    Hey, my first thought on this lady was maybe she was a door-to-door salesperson for these items? Not sure how to find out if the company (Helena Rubenstein) sold that way?

    just a thought - might be out in left field.......
