    Thanks dotr. These sources are quite dated. This case is being investigated, so might I suggest that people don't get sidetracked with old info that is no longer valid? None of the updated sites list webbed feet as a distinguishing characteristic. The rcmp site has the most recent info. Until the OPP site was shut down it also had the most updated info.

    The links are quite dated, hopefully a new article with updated information will be published!
    This article is from 2010 and mentions Nation River Lady's resting place, cannot recall if it has been previously linked.

    Approximately 600 unidentified human remains lie in morgues and cemeteries across the country. Who they were and what caused their deaths are mysteries that can endure for years or even decades.

    Take for example the woman whom police call The Nation River Lady. In May of 1975, a farmer spotted a body floating in the Nation River near Ottawa. Back then, forensics science was in its infancy and yet there was no doubt that the woman had been beaten and strangled to death.

    Retired Ontario Provincial Police detective Joe Peltier was one of the first assigned to the case and remembers when they pulled the body out of the water.

    "What we saw around her neck was one of those cable wires, said Peltier, "and her face was partly covered." The young woman's hands and feet were bound by men's neckties.

    There were many intriguing clues. Blood was found on the bridge above the Nation River. The victim was wrapped in green curtains and a tea towel embossed with a traditional Irish song. Closer investigation revealed extensive dental work, including unique metal bridgework. She had well-manicured and polished nails.

    Yet no one has been able to identify her and today The Nation River Lady is buried in a barely-marked grave in Toronto's Mount Pleasant cemetery, under a small stone

    Updated information on this case will be released to MSM and numerous social media platforms on August 1. A decision was taken not to have an actual press conference, but hopefully this will spark new interest in this case.

    Many new photo's and 3D Composite released today:

    OPP hopes new 3D facial image helps identify Nation River Lady


    Warning: Some of the images in this article are of a graphic nature and may be disturbing to readers




    OPP Const. Duncan Way, an OPP Forensic artist and reconstruction analyst, created a 3D clay facial reconstruction of the Nation River Lady using advanced technology. (OPP)

    An OPP forensic artist has created a 3D facial reconstruction of the Nation River Lady, the name given to the victim at the centre of a 42-year-old cold case, in hopes someone will recognize who she was and help them solve the lingering homicide investigation.



    A local farmer discovered the remains of the woman floating in the Nation River near the Highway 417 bridge, just south of Casselman, Ont., back in May of 1975.

    Police said her hands and feet were bound with neckties: a blue tie with small Canada flag emblems, a blue striped silk tie and a red tie with yellow patterns.Police have also released photos of the items found with the woman's body.
    Her body was wrapped in two pieces of green cloth and two towels, one with an Irish toast written on it, the other with a flower pattern.
    She was wearing a navy-blue body suit which had a collar, buttons down the front, long sleeves and snaps that secured in the crotch area, police said.
    A J-Cloth, TV cable and a curtain rod runner were also with her body, said OPP.


    Tipline set up

    She had an appendix operation scar and wore partial upper and lower dentures.

    The woman was described as Caucasian, between the ages of 25 and 50 years old, between five foot two inches and five foot eight inches tall with an average build, weighing approximately 100 pounds, and with brown hair that was dyed a reddish blond.

    Anyone with information that could help identity the woman or to find the person or persons responsible for her homicide are asked to contact the Ontario Provincial Police at 1-888-310-1122 or the Nation River Lady dedicated tipline at 613-591-2296.

    The Government of Ontario is offering a $50,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the homicide investigation.

    Wondering about the "rare cable television wire"? rbbm
    http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-...1975-cold-case
    The victim was pulled from the river on May 3, 1975 by a farmer. Police believe the body was thrown from the westbound lane of the highway bridge into the river below sometime in the fall of 1974.

    OPP described the murder as “brutal,” as an autopsy revealed she was strangled to death with a piece of rare cable television wire.
    She had extensive dental work and partial dentures, although police were never able to identify the origin of the work.

    Her hair would have been dark brown and shoulder length, dyed a reddish-blonde. She had manicured, painted finger nails.

    Rare? Hmm, I thought it said it was RG59? I will have to find more reference for this.

    300 OHM Flat Antenna Cable, was really "old" TV cable came down from ANTENNA's and into the house.

    It was flat as opposed to the round RG59 (and today it's RG6)

    I wonder if the flat stuff is the "rare" tv cable they are referring to?

    This UID had webbed feet.

    That had to be extremely rare?

    Why isn't that mentioned in the new release today?

    Unidentified White Female
    • Located on May 3, 1975 in Casselman, Ontario, Canada.
    • Cause of death was homicide by strangulation.
    • Estimated date of death: possibly as early as the summer or early fall of 1974.





    Vital Statistics




    • Estimated age: 25 - 50 years old
    • Approximate Height and Weight: 5'3" (160 cm); 100 lbs. (45 kg)
    • Distinguishing Characteristics: Shoulder-length brown hair (recently dyed reddish-blond); blue eyes. Slight build; she had no prior pregnancies. Her appendix had been removed previously and she had bright pink or red enamel on her finger & toe nails that was manicured.
    • Dentals: Available. Extensive dental work. The victim wore partial dentures with porcelain teeth in her upper and lower jaws. Many of her natural teeth had required fillings.
    • Clothing: She was naked except for a blue body suit that had been pulled up over her shoulders.
    • Fingerprints: Available




    Case History
    On the morning of May 3, 1975, this victim was located floating face down in the Nation River about 100 yards from the Highway 417 bridge. The Nation River is west of Casselman, Ontario and just thirty five miles east of Ottawa.
    After recovering the body, it was discovered that the victim's wrists were bound together in front using a man's necktie. Two other neckties had been used to secure the ankles.
    The victim's head was wrapped in 2 fringed green cloths. Upon removal of the cloths, investigators found that a kitchen towel had been knotted in the back to form a ligature around her neck. A television cable wire had also been wrapped around the victim's neck, over top of the kitchen towel.
    Blood evidence found on the bridge suggested that the victim had been killed 1 to 4 weeks prior to discovery. After a recent (2005) re-examination of the case, experts have suggested that the victim may have entered the Nation River as early as the summer of 1974.




    The police recovered the following items with the victim's body:
    • "Irish Toast" towel: This item was manufactured in Ireland, exported to Toronto, Ontario and distributed to stores in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal. They were sold at $1.39 (Canadian) each and had been stocked in stores for some time. The towel had Irish Gaelic printing on it, spelling out a traditional Irish toast.
    • A decorative necktie known as a 'Canadian Tie' and bearing three Canadian emblems on a navy blue background. The necktie was manufactured in Montreal and had been sold by various stores in the province of Quebec and in the eastern part of Ontario.
    • Partial dentures: Initially, it was believed that the woman's dentures had been manufactured abroad. However, it has now been suggested that the dentures were fairly common in Southern Ontario and Canada in terms of quality and materials.
    • A blue and gray necktie.
    • A red and white necktie.
    • 2 fringed green cloths: each 70 inches long and 48 inches in width.
    • Flat black plastic-covered wire: This was the typical wire used in cable television hook-ups. The plastic wire had a slight splattering of gray paint. Subsequent investigation revealed that the cable was manufactured in Renfrew, Ontario and distributed in the Ottawa, Hull, Montreal and Brockville areas.




    • The only real clue was a vague report from a store clerk in Marmora who remembered selling a provincial necktie to a man and woman couple. The woman matched the victim's description, but the store clerk could not remember a date for the sale.

      The male with the woman at that time could only be described as possibly 5'4"-5'6" and about 35 years of age.

    FLAT black plastic covered wire.

    There you go!

    It was flat, not round.

    So, it was the old style flat tv wire that would connect a tv antenna and run directly into the house from the antenna.

    Wirecraft International, was a wire manufacturer in Renfrew. Still digging.

    The store clerk in MARMORA sold the necktie. Marmora is QUITE a distance from Casselman to be sure. But this would not be surprising!

    Almost two million feet of it was shipped to cablevision firms in Ottawa, Hull, Montreal and Brockville — nowhere else.


    That suggests the unidentified woman was attacked in the Ottawa-Brockville-Montreal triangle.


    The mystery began about 9:30 a.m. on May 3, 1975.

    That was the day that Claude Legault, working the south section of his farm just north of Highway 17, spotted a decomposing corpse face down in the sluggish river, 40 minutes east of Ottawa.

    Police retrieved the body and a collection of strange clues led detectives down dead-end paths for years.

    Clad only in a long-sleeved, dark blue leotard top bunched up around her neck, the woman was bound hand and foot. Her hands were tied in front with a distinctive navy blue necktie with three small Canadian emblems, possibly flags. Her legs were bound at the ankles by two more ties.

    Her head was hooded in an odd array of layered cloth: two pieces of bloodied, green textile, a disposable hand towel and a distinctive Irish linen tea towel.

    Loosely wrapped around her neck was the television cable. In her left armpit was a small piece of a curtain rod runner with an attached plastic wheel.

    On the bridge railing, police found drops of blood, but not enough to establish a blood type and a link to the victim.

    The victim had high-quality upper and lower partial dentures, suggesting a middle-class background. There were 10 fillings in her teeth.

    Her appendix had been removed. She had not borne a child. Her larynx was fractured in two places, but there were no other signs of injury. She had eaten a short time before her death and was bound before she was killed.

    Because of decomposition, it was impossible to tell if she was sexually assaulted.

    Her body is believed to have been in the water for as long as six months before it was discovered.

    With the clues and autopsy, police pieced together a sketchy murder theory:

    After eating a large meal, the woman, who seemed to take good care of her appearance, was attacked by a man inside a room where the cloths would have been close at hand.

    During the attack, she or her assailant pulled down a curtain and, in the ensuing struggle, the chunk of curtain rod lodged in her armpit.

    After being overpowered, she was tied up, killed and dumped off the bridge.

    There’s no record of the woman’s fingerprints anywhere in the world.

    Police combed through more than 700 missing person files — one led them on a fruitless hunt to Switzerland — and ruled out all of them.

    Denturists and dental laboratories from Toronto to Halifax couldn’t identify the woman’s elaborate dentures, leading to speculation she might have been a foreigner, but checks outside the country also turned up nothing.

    Police knocked on every door within a 25-kilometre radius of the bridge and came up with nothing.

    Teams of officers searched dozens of Ottawa-area homes, hotels and motels where the TV cable might have been installed, but found no missing 24-inch strands or places where the cable had been mysteriously replaced. No damaged curtain rods were found in area motels.

    The neckties that bound her hands and feet had been made in Montreal and sold in large quantities throughout Ontario and Quebec.

    The distinctive linen tea towel had been imported from Ireland by a Toronto company and was sold in large numbers until 1972, making it untraceable, too.

    On Jan. 16, 1987, after more than a decade inside Drawer No. 34 at the provincial morgue in Toronto, the woman was finally buried.

    A $50,000 reward offered by police remains uncollected. Anyone with information is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

    Cablevision firms.

    Okay, are we talking the old local cabletv companies?

    Hmmm....the wire is indeed special. 2 million feet sold exclusively in those 4 cities.

    I would like to know more about the Marmora witness.
