    A woman found buried near Nine Mile Hill more than seven years ago has been known only as Jane Doe or "Boots," a reference to the black ones she wore that jutted from the sand and alerted two hikers to her shallow grave.

    Perhaps with Saturday's airing of a segment on "America's Most Wanted," authorities will finally learn her real name.

    A film crew from the popular Fox TV crime-fighting show traveled to Albuquerque in October to shoot scenes for the segment, titled "Mystery in the Desert."

    Among those interviewed for the segment are Bernalillo County Sheriff Darren White and sheriff's Detective Bill Peters of the Cold Case Unit.
    It was Peters, who is investigating the case, who contacted "America's Most Wanted" about the missing woman, segment producer Jenna Naranjo said.

    The show typically doesn't feature unidentified persons, but Naranjo said this case was irresistible.

    Trazodone is no longer routinely prescribed for depression, it more commonly used now as a sleep aid.

    AMW Link Much more info here.

    From the AMW link:

    Again, Peters continued to comb the autopsy report for clues, and he uncovered details about Boots' killer. He learned that Boots didn't just die of a gun shot wound: she was killed with a black powder rifle. The rifles are unique because they're loaded through the muzzle, each bullet loaded individually, which could indicate the shooter had good aim. Also, Peters says there are two types of people who usually carry the weapons. In New Mexico, there is an entire hunting season devoted to people who use black powder rifles, but he said there is also a group of history buffs who enjoy the weapon's ties to American history.

    And he chased two more clues with the same result: at the crime scene, near her body, he found a cane with the initials "R.K." and a set of CD's with the name "Sandy" written on two of them.

    From DoeNetwork:

    Sandra Jean Brady
    The victim was located on March 5, 2000 in Bernalillo County, New Mexico. She was identified in January 2008, after the cases was featured at AMW. The unidentified woman was Sandra Jean Brady of Ohio. Her daughter contacted police after viewing the show, and said that a tattoo on the victim was consistent with one that her mother had. She also indicated that the last time she heard from her mother was Jan. 9, 2000, when she told her she was in Albuquerque. Medical investigators used fingerprints to positively identify Brady.

    I'm glad Sandra was identified. I hope this brings some closure to her family. AMW needs to air more segments on unidentified people. These cases definately generate a lot of tips when aired nationally.
