CO - Douglas County, WhtFem 154UFCO, 13-20, In Rainbow Falls Campground, Jun'93

http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/154ufco.html



Unidentified White Female

  • Discovered on June 15, 1993 in Douglas County, Colorado.
  • Authorities believe that she died after being hit in the head.
  • She was estimated to have been deceased since June 12 or 13, 1993.



Vital Statistics






  • Estimated age: 13 - 20 years old
  • Approximate Height and Weight: 5'8" (170 cm); 140-160 lbs.
  • Distinguishing Characteristics: Shoulder-length, light brown / blonde hair, could have been dyed to achieve the lighter color. Unknown eye color. Stocky build with large breasts and large hips. Approximate shoe size 6 or 7. Fingernails that were either cut or chewed very short.
  • Dentals: Dental charts available. She had no dental work or cavities.
  • Clothing: She was wearing a black short-sleeve Harley-Davidson T-shirt.
  • Jewelry: A gold pinkie ring (not a full circle ring) on her left hand. A gold necklace with a black stone pendant cut like a long crystal, a gold necklace with a pendant consisting of wizards hands holding a spherical brown tiger eye, and a stud earring with a clear glass stone in her left ear.
  • Other: She may be a runaway from Louisiana.
  • Fingerprints: Available
Case History
The partially clad and decomposing body of a young girl was discovered in southwest Douglas County in the Pike San Isabel National Forest, between Woodland Park and Deckers off Highway 67, in a makeshift campsite by a hiker at the Rainbow Falls Campground. Investigators believe the victim may have been dumped in the spot where her body was found. The victim's body was found within days of a nearby convention of the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club that met June 12 -13, at the Horse Creek campground south of Deckers. Investigators said they have not been able to determine if the victim had any association to that group.
Investigators believe the victim may have been dumped in the spot where her body was found. She was found half nude, wearing only a black short sleeve Harley Davidson t-shirt and some unique jewelry.
At the time of the initial investigation in 1993, investigators believed the victim to be between 15-19 years old. Since the discovery of her body, several forensic examinations have been conducted and additionally, a series of anthropological reconstructions of the victim's skull have been conducted in an effort to determine her appearance, age, and identity. After the most recent forensic examination of her skull, investigators now believe the victim to be 13 to 20 years old.
No trace of illegal drugs were found in her body, and investigators found no evidence of sexual assault by intercourse, however they have not ruled out the possibility of non-intercourse sexual assault/contact.
Investigators found characteristics that indicated she might have been very well cared for prior to her death. For instance, she was healthy with no sign of disease, she had very healthy teeth with no fillings, and her wisdom teeth were removed.
A national comparison of her fingerprints have not aided in identification.

CO-Unidentified girl - Douglas County Colorado - June 1993

I couldn't find this case on here so I thought I would add it. I also found a link to an old article (2004) about the reconstruction, and it has some more info on her and how she was found.

I think the pics of her at the Douglas County Coroner website are better than at Doe (larger, clearer, and more life like). Jewelry pics are better on Doe.

Wonder why they think she might be a runaway from Lousiana?

Thanks for the link! I wouldn't have thought to check there. Those pics are definitely a lot better quality.
I'm not sure why they mention Louisiana- maybe more recent info on her or something? The article at the top says LE thought she didn't seem much like a runaway because she'd been cared for so well- no calluses on hands or feet, never any cavities and her wisdom teeth were removed, no drugs in her system, etc.
The coroners site does mention the possibility that she was a runaway also though, so I guess I'd go by their assessment rather than the news article.

Since her wisdom teeth were removed I guess she's probably at the older end of the 13-20 age range?

Also- forgot to link to her Doe Network page I think

Probably a witness or something on her that mentioned Louisiana. Possibly a recent runaway? Maybe she took off with a boyfriend on a little cross country trip. Hard to say with teenagers. Being a runaway would explain why her parents/siblings haven't id'd her yet.

I had my wisdom teeth removed at age 16 or 17, so yeah I'd say she was in her late teens.

I would definitely say she's on the older end of the age scale....judging by the reconstruction. The wisdom teeth are a good clue, too.

I've thought about posting this one as well - there's so much there that's identifiable to SOMEone, I would expect that she had been at least reported missing as a runaway.

I had my wisdom teeth removed (surgically) at 13 so unless they tell us more info, I don't think it makes a difference as far as knowing her age.

Laura Lynn Thompson

not an exact resemblance, but she does fit the age and the height/weight range.

also - Elsa Wind has probably been ruled out already - her page says her fingerprints have been entered but haven't thus far been a match to anyone. I do think she definitely bears a resemblance, was a runaway, and fits the height/weight range.

Also with so little information known about Laura's case, she could be a run away, have lost some weight between 1992 - 1993 and ended up in Colorado. I really think she should be looked at closely.

Dedra Michelle Saxon Bracken.

Details of disappearance are not a great match but height is just under and weight is on target.

Was hesitant to post this one as it's probably not, but I think the nose is very similar.

Do we know for sure that Jane Doe has no tattoos?

Teen from Louisiana

How about this teenager http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/benoit_wilda.html
Her height is way off, but then again, she was only 14, when she disappeared, probably didn't have a DL, so, I'm thinking her height & weight are guess-timates! Her fingerprints may not be in a data base either...Her face matches up to the reconstruction, though!
Since, she was from Louisiana, I think she should be seriously considered.
I'll be watching to see what you all think, but, continuing to search....

Hi MadeaBecBec,

I think the facial recontruction shows a good likeness but as you say the height is way off...I didn't grow much after 14 but I am a shorty - is it usual for tall teenage girls to have that kind of growth spurt?

I think this a really good match. This is a good question that I had thought of also re: tattos, but I think that you can't really count on tattoos/scars as indicators if the remains are fully skeletonized, because if any tattoos or scars on the skin would be gone by that point anyway.

Just a couple random thoughts---
My guess is that if she had tattoos they would probably have been visible. She was found just 2/3 days after her death and they were able to tell that she had no callouses on her hands and feet and they got good fingerprints so I have a feeling that any tattoos would have shown up also?

Her face was unrecognizable when she was found though, the drawings/reconstructions are all done from the skull so not all the facial features will necessarily match up.

Also she is listed on the UDRS website- apparently she had had a splenectomy (spleen removed)? I had not seen that information anywhere else.
