    Unidentified White Female
    Located on November 1, 1980 in Walker County, Texas.
    Cause of death was homicide.
    The victim had been dead for six hours before she was found.



    • [*]Estimated age: 14 1/2 - 16 1/2 years old

      [*]Clothing: She was wearing a rectangular-shaped pendant with a smoky blue stone on a gold chain (as seen in the victim's sketch above). She may have been wearing jeans and a yellow shirt. A pair of high-heeled sandals, 3" or 4" inch platforms with light brown straps, had been thrown beside the body.
      [*]Dentals: Available. Her teeth had been well cared for.
      [*]Fingerprints: Available
      [*]DNA: mtDNA available in CODIS
    Case History
    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 were no identification with the body. No semen was found on or in the victim's body.
    When the murder became known through media accounts, 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 6:30 p.m. 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 the girl 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.


    Case Details:

    Walker County Jane Doe was found lying face down and nude by a truck driver on November 1, 1980 near the Sam Houston National Forest in Walker County Texas. This is about a half mile south of the FM 1696 exit near Huntsville.
    The victim, an attractive young teenage girl, had been savagely beaten and sexually assaulted before dying by slow strangulation. Her face and body were covered with bruises from the beating and there was a human bite mark on her back near her right shoulder. The autopsy revealed she had been sexually assaulted with a blunt instrument.
    When the murder was reported, several people came forward and said they'd seen a teenager matching her description the day before her body was found. One witness, the manager of a gas station which no longer exists, positively identified the victim as a girl who had been at the station around 6:30 p.m. Halloween night asking for directions to the Ellis prison unit. She was wearing blue jeans, a yellow pullover sweater with big pockets that hung below her waist, and 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 out 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. She never reached the Ellis Unit and she was never seen alive again.

    I hope she can be identified. How sad that she asked "who cares?" when asked about her family and for 29 years strangers who cared very much have been trying to give her a name.

    There is a thread about her on Porchlight, including an article from a magazine with more information on her murder and a post-mortem photo. It appears the photo was the one used to draw her profile sketch that appears on Doe Network.

    These are the ruleouts on Namus. There are quite a few further names scattered through the thread. And I think there's a list on Porchlight, but I don't have a pointer.

    The Namus ruleouts list is not complete. You'll need to go back to the old thread and search on the names to find out whether many of the older cases were ruled out.

    I don't like it either because everything was in one place.
    In regards to the posts at the end of the original thread, Rebekah Home made the girls wear skirts or dresses. Not one girl I saw in videos was wearing jeans. There is also an article that says it was closed down due to legal action against it at the time WCJD was killed.

    I went and looked at my notes because my computer is in pieces until a new part arrives. Rebekah Home was shut down in the summer of 1979.

    The skirts rule doesn't say anything about what she would have worn when she was away from the home, or after she left it.

    It's possible she could have been there at some point but it was still closed down in the summer of 1979 so over a year before she died.
