Oklahoma Sheriff Holds Twitter-Thon About Lime Lady Cold Case
“We know someone was running or walking towards her while they were shooting,” said Mark Meyers with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office. “We just have absolutely no idea who she is.”
But detectives do not think she was killed along the river. Instead, they think the killer shot her somewhere else, and then dumped her body.
The sheriff's office says the killer used lime in an attempt to try to decompose the body quickly. But it turns out, the killer bought the wrong kind, and it actually helped preserve the body as well as crucial evidence. We went over to Roosters Cafe in Jones, to see if anyone here remembered the case.
“It was in the news and it was gossiped around town a little bit,” said Charles King, who was born and raised in Jones.
“Nothing that's just it,” recalls Rooster Bill, who owns the Rooster Café in Jones. “I remember them announcing it, and that was it. It just died after that. I don't even remember seeing a sketch of any kind.”
Bill is glad authorities are putting the picture of the woman and her tattoo back out there.
“Somebody knows that tattoo. Someone remembers that tattoo. Somebody knows who she is,” he said.
