    WI - Ashford, Wht/HispFem 764UFWI, 15-21, in creek near I-41, Nov'08

    Hunters have discovered a body, believed to be a woman, in rural Fond du Lac County.

    The badly decomposed body was found about 9:17 a.m. off Skyline Drive, west of Memorial Drive, in the town of Ashford, near St. Killian, said Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Rick Olig.

    A team of detectives has been sent to the area. Olig said the body has not been identified. The hunters believe it is a woman due to the clothing, he said.

    No women have been reported missing in the Fond du Lac area in recent months, Olig said. Officers are checking with surrounding counties to see if they have any missing persons reports.

    Further details will be posted as they become available.

    Foul play may be involved in the death of a woman whose body was found in an isolated area of southeastern Fond du Lac County, says Fond du Lac County Sheriff Mick Fink.

    "It's a real whodunit," Fink said Sunday. "We're definitely looking at a suspicious death, if not a homicide."

    and

    The body is frozen in the foot-deep creek, but appears to be a woman due to the clothing, Fink said.

    and

    The death appears "relatively recent" and no women have been reported missing in Fond du Lac County that fit the timeframe, Strand said.

    A cause of death was not apparent, Strand said.

    Body female found ASHFORD, Wis.

    Sheriff Mick Fink said Monday that investigators believe the body belongs to a female at least 15 years old. He says how she died is unknown.

    Fink says because the body was only partially decomposed, it's likely the victim has been dead a matter of months, not years.

    Homicide investigation proceeding slowly

    The Sheriff's Department is hoping to have the body examined this week. No timeline was given for results.

    Fink said the victim is most likely a white woman and stressed that families missing a child should not be concerned.

    Body taken to Madison

    From fdlreporter.com:

    The body that's the focus of a Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Department's "Jane Doe" homicide investigation has been moved to Madison.

    Sheriff Mick Fink said the woman's body was moved to Madison on Tuesday for study by forensic anthropologist Leslie E. Eisenberg, burial sites preservation program coordinator for the Wisconsin Historical Society.

    Sheriff's Department Detective Charles Sosinski will be in contact with Eisenberg regarding the investigation.

    The body was found by three hunters at 9:17 a.m. Sunday partially submerged in a frozen creek in a wooded area behind W4617 Skyline Drive in the town of Ashford.

    Fink said if studying the woman's skeleton reveals the cause of death, the information will be released to the media.

    Sheriff says chances slim that remains are Stacey Peterson

    From article here:

    The Fond du Lac County sheriff says the body found there by hunters nearly two weeks ago is probably not the remains of a suburban Chicago policeman's missing wife.

    Sheriff Mick Fink says the chances are very slim that the remains are 23-year-old Stacy Peterson of Bolingbrook, Illinois, who vanished about a year ago. But he says detectives from there have called to compare notes.

    ok so...all they can tell us right now is that it's a white woman that's likely been dead for months, so went missing between November 2007 and 2008. age? height/weight? distinguishing characteristics? since she was only partially decomposed, I'd think they'd have more to go on than that.
    Some people do crossword puzzles or Soduko in their spare time...I look at skeletal reconstructions and work on UID puzzles. I swear I'm not this morbid in person!

    Help Fred Murray find his daughter and bring her home. He should not be walking those woods alone!

    Good Lord, it's a 15 year old child at the least! I wonder if she has been reported missing?

    LE doesn't think this is Laurie Depies, Amber Wilde or Stacy Peterson.

    "...all investigators know is: the remains are those of a physically mature, Caucasian woman, maybe as young as 14 or as old as 40. The cause of death is unknown, but investigators found no evidence of suicide..."

    Sheriff says help needed to solve homicide

    From article at fdlreporter.com:

    "The Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Department will soon reveal statistics and clothing of the "Jane Doe" homicide.

    Sheriff Mick Fink said a press conference will likely be held before Christmas to help identify the woman's body found the morning of Nov. 23 in a wooded area behind W4617 Skyline Drive in the town of Ashford.

    "We were able to replicate all of the clothing that she was wearing," Fink said. "We bought it directly in the same size, the same (brand)."

    Thank you for posting about her in the first place, Hoppy

    She needs to be brought home. The press conference is supposed to be tomorrow at 10am local. (CST?) I'll add the link in a minute, once I find it again.

    Sheriff: No leads on ID of human remains found near Fond du Lac

    Associated Press

    Article Last Updated: 12/22/2008 12:59:04 PM CST





    FOND DU LAC, Wis. — The partially decomposed remains found a month ago by deer hunters in a creek were those of a female 15 to 21 years old who was probably knock-kneed and pigeon-toed, Fond du Lac County Sheriff Mick Fink said today.
    "How she walked and carried herself would be a distinctive characteristic," the sheriff said.
    Investigators believe she died in late summer or early fall but her identity remained a mystery. "We are up against it here and we know that," Fink said. "Anything is a possibility. I wouldn't rule out anything."
