    DISCOVERED ON JANUARY 12, 2004
    NEAR MILEPOST 268, SOUTHBOUND INTERSTATE 5
    MARION COUNTY, OREGON

    The Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Salem, Oregon, is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the body of an unidentified female found near milepost 268 of the southbound Interstate 5 freeway on January 12, 2004. Evidence from the scene has caused investigators to conclude that the woman was a homicide victim. Based on the advanced degree of decomposition, it is believed that the woman probably died sometime between September and November, 2003.

    Experts have advised that the victim was most probably a Hispanic female, approximately 18 to 29 years of age. She was between 4’ 10" and 5’ 3" tall and weighed between 120 and 140 pounds, having a stocky build. She had straight black hair about eighteen inches long, which she wore in a ponytail. She was dressed in relatively expensive, fashionable clothing. She had received quality dental work which appeared to have been performed outside the United States, presumably in Mexico. Of particular note, the woman had a healing fracture of her upper left leg (femur bone) which had been repaired with a temporary titanium rod. Investigation has determined that this device was installed in Mexico. Accordingly, it is likely that the woman had been in the United States for only a relatively short period at the time of her death. Because her body was found along the southbound side of Interstate 5, her travels would have included northern Oregon and perhaps the state of Washington.

    Murkywaters that does look likely.

    I was going to suggest posting the info around Coos Bay & the Mexican area of Portland.

    If the decedent was undocumented unfortunately tips might be slow to come in. There are numerous immigrants to the Pac NW who don't apply for citizenship because they don't need to for their given occupations. Just mentioning this (as to why this decedent is still UID.)

    I submitted Haifaa a couple months ago, the detective didn't think it was a match, and they eventually ruled her out.

    I've just noticed this Jane Doe's NamUs case file has been removed.

    i think they need to figure out who her baby's father was and then take a look at him.

    RIP Miriam.. I hope the baby is ok.
