    Unidentified White Female
    Located on November 1, 1980 in Walker County, Texas.
    Cause of death was homicide.
    The victim had been dead for six hours before she was found.


    • Estimated age: 14 1/2 - 16 1/2 years old
    • Approximate Height and Weight: 5'0 - 5'3" (most likely 5'2"); 110 - 120 lbs.
    • Distinguishing Characteristics: Light brown hair past the shoulders, cut in wing fashion, natural, no evidence of color treatment. Brown or Hazel eyes. A 1 1/2" scar at end of right eyebrow . Her ears were pierced. Her toenails was painted pink. No tattoos.
    • Clothing: She was wearing a rectangular-shaped pendant with a smoky blue stone on a gold chain (as seen in the victim's sketch above). She may have been wearing jeans and a yellow shirt. A pair of high-heeled sandals, 3" or 4" inch platforms with light brown straps, had been thrown beside the body.
    • Dentals: Available. Her teeth had been well cared for.
    • Fingerprints: Available
    • DNA: mtDNA available in CODIS

    Case History
    The victim's body was dumped on side of I-45 north, 2 miles north of Huntsville, TX. The general condition of the body and her overall health and nutrition indicated she had probably come from a middle class home. There were no identification with the body. No semen was found on or in the victim's body.
    When the murder became known through media accounts, several people came forward and said they’d seen a teenager matching her description the day before her body was found.
    A witness identified the victim as a girl who had been at the South End Gulf station around 6:30 p.m. on Halloween night asking for directions to the Ellis prison unit.
    She had been wearing blue jeans, a yellow pullover sweater with big pockets that hung below her waist, and she was carrying high-heeled sandals in her hand. To the best of his recollection, she had been let out of a 1973 or ‘74 blue Chevrolet, possibly a Caprice, with a lighter colored top, which was being driven by a white male. She looked disheveled like she had been traveling, and perhaps sleeping in her clothes.
    She left the station, walking north on Sam Houston avenue.
    A waitress working at the Hitchin’ Post truck stop on Interstate 45 said the girl came into the restaurant the same evening and again, asked for directions to the Ellis Unit, saying she had a friend there. A map was drawn for her and she departed.
    The waitress asked the girl how old she was and the girl responded 19. The witness thought that was an obvious lie and then asked the girl if her parents knew where she was. The young girl replied, "Who cares". The witness then stated she asked her where she was from. The girl replied Aransas Pass/Rockport, TX area. It has not been verified that the girl was the unidentified victim.
    Her photograph was shown to every inmate at Ellis Prison Unit, but no one claimed to know the girl.
    On January 16, 1981, the unidentified girl was buried in the Adickes Addition at Oakwood Cemetery. Huntsville Funeral Home buried her, and Morris Memorials provided her tombstone.
    It is believed that Henry Lee Lucas killed this girl, but investigators could not make a match between the bite mark on her left shoulder and his dental reconstruction.


    Case Details:
    Walker County Jane Doe was found lying face down and nude by a truck driver on November 1, 1980 near the Sam Houston National Forest in Walker County Texas. This is about a half mile south of the FM 1696 exit near Huntsville.
    The victim, an attractive young teenage girl, had been savagely beaten and sexually assaulted before dying by slow strangulation. Her face and body were covered with bruises from the beating and there was a human bite mark on her back near her right shoulder. The autopsy revealed she had been sexually assaulted with a blunt instrument.
    When the murder was reported, several people came forward and said they'd seen a teenager matching her description the day before her body was found. One witness, the manager of a gas station which no longer exists, positively identified the victim as a girl who had been at the station around 6:30 p.m. Halloween night asking for directions to the Ellis prison unit. She was wearing blue jeans, a yellow pullover sweater with big pockets that hung below her waist, and carrying high-heeled sandals in her hand. To the best of his recollection, she had been let out of a 1973 or 74 blue Chevrolet, possibly a Caprice, with a lighter colored top, which was being driven by a white male. She looked disheveled like she had been traveling and perhaps sleeping in her clothes. She left the station, walking north on Sam Houston avenue.
    A waitress working at the Hitchin Post truck stop out on Interstate 45 said the girl came into the restaurant the same evening and again, asked for directions to the Ellis Unit, saying she had a friend there. A map was drawn for her and she departed. She never reached the Ellis Unit and she was never seen alive again.

    I hope she can be identified. How sad that she asked "who cares?" when asked about her family and for 29 years strangers who cared very much have been trying to give her a name.

    There is a thread about her on Porchlight, including an article from a magazine with more information on her murder and a post-mortem photo. It appears the photo was the one used to draw her profile sketch that appears on Doe Network.

    Good finds! I think Diane Dye physically resembles Jane Doe but it was reported a friend saw her alive in 1981 so that would seemingly rule her out provided the friend was being truthful.

    Kimberly Doss also looks a lot like Jane Doe, IMO, and she might have been away from home in FL long enough to have gotten to know someone who might be in the Ellis unit.

    I'm saying, big discrepancy. I'm thinking I might email LE and try to verify the info and see if they can give us any additional details. I wanted to post on her case here first to see if any of my fellow WS's had anything before I did so though.

    I would really love to see this poor girl identified, she is never far from my mind. I live in a suburb north of Houston but we also have property in the country about 25 miles past Huntsville, TX which is where we spend a lot of our weekends. Anyhoo, I think about her every single time we drive past the exit on I-45 where she was found, which is about 2 miles past Huntsville.

    apparently her DNA is available in CODIS - does that mean that all Missing Persons whos have DNA in CODIS can be automatically ruled out?
