    Unknown Doe - Age about 14 to17, Caucasian, brunette. Dumped on I-45 about five miles north of Huntsville on November 1, 1980. She was nude, had been strangled with pantyhose and had human bites on her body. Described as 5'4" tall, 110 pounds. A truck driver found her body. 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 was no identification with the body. No semen was found on or in the victim's body.

    When the murder became known through media, 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 18:30 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 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. STILL UNSOLVED.

    Sharon Shaw – Age 14. On August 5, 1971, two 14-year old Webster girls, Rhonda Johnson and Sharon Shaw, disappeared from an outing in Galveston. An investigation was launched the same day by the police department in nearby Webster in Harris County. Their skeletal remains were discovered about five months later in the Taylor Bayou near the community of Shoreacres in southeast Harris County.

    Michael Lloyd Self confessed, but recanted the confession he made to Officer Tommy Deal & Chief Don Morris (both whom are now incarcerated for bank robberies in Texas during this time). Self is the only man in America convicted solely on a confession. Ed Bell is also a suspect.

    Kimberly Pitchford - Age 16, Caucasian; last seen at a Pasadena driving school (at Dobie High School) near I-45 on January 3, 1973. She was found strangled two days later in a ditch near Angleton near 288, about 30 miles south of where she was last seen. However, the authorities still deem the case unsolved.

    Edward Bell identified her as one of his victims (in a 09/2011 interview with the Houston Chronicle called ‘The 11 That Went to Heaven”, but I don’t believe he was charged.

    Nina Lynn Kluge, 16, of Cypress, who failed to arrive home Oct. 22, 1975, after visiting friends in Rosharon. Her car was found abandoned along Texas 6, about four miles west of Santa Fe. Brazoria County Sheriff's Lt. Gene Smith who has been placed in charge of the investigation, said that at this point he must assume the Cypress girl stopped beside Highway 6 with auto trouble or for some other reason and her assailant met her at that point.

    Evidence where the body was found Thanksgiving Day indicates she had been killed elsewhere and then the body was dumped into the weedy drainage ditch. The body was nude when found and was lying atop some of her clothing and other clothing was wadded up nearby. Officers found blue jeans, red shirt and yellow bikini panties near the body. There is speculation that whoever put the body in the ditch had to be familiar with the area. The spot is located deep within some rice fields and it is necessary to make two sharp turns on rice field roads to get to the rice canal levee.

    Suzanne Bowers – 12 years old. May 21, 1977 disappeared from Galveston - Medical Examiner said Bower's dental chart matched that of a skeleton found Sunday 03/25/1979 in a field near Avenue P1/2 in Alta Loma. The Galveston girl disappeared May 21, 1977 while walking from her grandmother's home in the 4000 block of Avenue S1/2 to her own residence in the 3100 block of Avenue P. Authorities Tuesday said the cause of death is still unknown. "She had a skull fracture. The cause of death has not been determined.

    It was about 10:30 a.m. May 21, 1977 when the seventh grade Lovenberg School student left her grandmother's house, Mrs. Bowers recalls. "She was going home first to get her bathing suit. She wanted to go to the beach. Suzanne walked that same route many times. She never did reach home," said Mrs. Bowers. "The case has been turned over to them because it originated in Galveston. There are no suspects. There appeared to be gunshot holes in her skull."

    18 Mile Road is found near the bottom tip of the island, located in the lower left corner of this image.

    Skull Found – Galveston - August 15, 1980 - A human skull was found on West Beach near 18-mile road Friday evening by two beachgoers. The skull was partially buried in the edge of a sand dune. The people who discovered the skull took it to Galveston Island State Park where they called police.

    Sgt. Danny Perez of the Sheriff's Department said the discovery of the skull is a new development in an investigation that has been going on since Monday 8/10/80 when a jawbone was found on West Beach near 7-mile road. Since then, a human leg bone was found at 11-mile road and a human forearm was found on the beach near Galveston Island State Park. After the skull was returned to the area where it was found, Galveston Police and Galveston County Medical Examiner Dr. W. M. Korndorffer searched the sand and found no other human remains. Korndorffer said the skull may be that of a young female; the skull contained no wisdom teeth which would indicate the person was young. Based on an initial examination of the skull, Korndorffer said it may match the jawbone that was found earlier in the week.

    A small amount of blonde hair was still attached to the skull and a handful of hair was in the sand below the skull. Korndorffer said there are missing persons in the area who match the description of the skull, believed to be a teenaged female. He then said "the rest of the skeleton will probably show up later." He said he doesn't believe any more bones are in the area where the skull was found. Korndorffer said he will put all the bones together Saturday morning, and try to see if they belong to the same person. He said it is too early to guess at the cause of death until more tests are performed.

    Hoskins Mound is right next to Danbury, surrounded by small bodies of water

    Jane Doe – Hoskins Mound - She is thought to be 12 to 17 years old, Caucasian Female, death estimated to be around 1975 - November 11, 1980 - HUMAN SKULL FOUND IN HOSKINS MOUND in Brazoria County (Torso, limbs, hands not recovered); Sheriff's Office investigation is currently underway in connection with the weekend discovery of a human skull in the Hoskins Mound area, Sheriff's Office Captain Gene Smith said Monday.

    Danbury resident was "working some cattle" in a pasture located near CR 203, approximately one half mile off of FM 2004, when he noticed the skull, according to Smith. Sgt. Harry Stiles of the Investigation Division subsequently recovered the skull, which appeared to have been in the pasture for an extended period of time. Smith noted that even though the skull appeared bleached out, the teeth were intact except for two upper teeth which appeared to be missing. No dental work was evident. "It was pretty well weather-beaten," Smith said of the skull. He added that the skull showed no sign of fracture or gunshot.

    A Monday search of the site resulted in the discovery of two additional bones, which investigators believe to be arm and leg bones. The bones were found within close proximity of the skull, which was located near a drainage ditch, Smith said.
