Unidentified White or Hispanic Female Found February 20, 1997 in Swatara Twp, Dauphin County There is not a lot of information available on this case. I tried contacting the police department, but they declined to share photos of the reconstruction, or any of the victim's belongings, claiming they were part of an ongoing criminal investigation. Perhaps someone with law enforcement background or prior experience can convince them to release more in regard to this cold case, as it's the only hope I see of it being solved. http://pennsylvaniamissing.com/swatarajane2201997.html This case is NOT listed on the Doe Network, something I'd like to fix. On Thursday, February 20, 1997, two employees of the Swatara Twp Sewer Authority searching for deer tracks stumbled upon the skeletal remains of a young female under a low bush in a wooded area about 50 feet off of Chambers Hill Road in Swatara Twp. The site where she was found is about 100 yards from the intersection with Route 441. Aerial and ground photos were taken. A chain saw was used to clear about 2,000 square feet of brush area in the search for evidence. The site is also close to the old township landfill, where several years earlier the remains of several missing women had been found but there is no evidence indicating that this young woman's death is related to the others.

The results will go into more databases to broaden the search for dental records and mitochondrial DNA extracted from her thigh bone. When that report comes back, Hetrick hopes to build a new clay model over her skull that might better reflect how she looked when she was alive. "
