    Hunters have discovered a body, believed to be a woman, in rural Fond du Lac County.

    The badly decomposed body was found about 9:17 a.m. off Skyline Drive, west of Memorial Drive, in the town of Ashford, near St. Killian, said Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Rick Olig.

    A team of detectives has been sent to the area. Olig said the body has not been identified. The hunters believe it is a woman due to the clothing, he said.

    No women have been reported missing in the Fond du Lac area in recent months, Olig said. Officers are checking with surrounding counties to see if they have any missing persons reports.

    Further details will be posted as they become available.

    Foul play may be involved in the death of a woman whose body was found in an isolated area of southeastern Fond du Lac County, says Fond du Lac County Sheriff Mick Fink.

    "It's a real whodunit," Fink said Sunday. "We're definitely looking at a suspicious death, if not a homicide."

    and

    The body is frozen in the foot-deep creek, but appears to be a woman due to the clothing, Fink said.

    and

    The death appears "relatively recent" and no women have been reported missing in Fond du Lac County that fit the timeframe, Strand said.

    A cause of death was not apparent, Strand said.

    From fdlreporter.com:

    The body that's the focus of a Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Department's "Jane Doe" homicide investigation has been moved to Madison.

    Sheriff Mick Fink said the woman's body was moved to Madison on Tuesday for study by forensic anthropologist Leslie E. Eisenberg, burial sites preservation program coordinator for the Wisconsin Historical Society.

    Sheriff's Department Detective Charles Sosinski will be in contact with Eisenberg regarding the investigation.

    The body was found by three hunters at 9:17 a.m. Sunday partially submerged in a frozen creek in a wooded area behind W4617 Skyline Drive in the town of Ashford.

    Fink said if studying the woman's skeleton reveals the cause of death, the information will be released to the media.

    From article here:

    The Fond du Lac County sheriff says the body found there by hunters nearly two weeks ago is probably not the remains of a suburban Chicago policeman's missing wife.

    Sheriff Mick Fink says the chances are very slim that the remains are 23-year-old Stacy Peterson of Bolingbrook, Illinois, who vanished about a year ago. But he says detectives from there have called to compare notes.

    ok so...all they can tell us right now is that it's a white woman that's likely been dead for months, so went missing between November 2007 and 2008. age? height/weight? distinguishing characteristics? since she was only partially decomposed, I'd think they'd have more to go on than that.

    Good Lord, it's a 15 year old child at the least! I wonder if she has been reported missing?

    From article at fdlreporter.com:

    "The Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Department will soon reveal statistics and clothing of the "Jane Doe" homicide.

    Sheriff Mick Fink said a press conference will likely be held before Christmas to help identify the woman's body found the morning of Nov. 23 in a wooded area behind W4617 Skyline Drive in the town of Ashford.

    "We were able to replicate all of the clothing that she was wearing," Fink said. "We bought it directly in the same size, the same (brand)."

    Thank you for posting about her in the first place, Hoppy :)

    She needs to be brought home. The press conference is supposed to be tomorrow at 10am local. (CST?) I'll add the link in a minute, once I find it again.

    FOND DU LAC, Wis. — The partially decomposed remains found a month ago by deer hunters in a creek were those of a female 15 to 21 years old who was probably knock-kneed and pigeon-toed, Fond du Lac County Sheriff Mick Fink said today.
    "How she walked and carried herself would be a distinctive characteristic," the sheriff said.
    Investigators believe she died in late summer or early fall but her identity remained a mystery. "We are up against it here and we know that," Fink said. "Anything is a possibility. I wouldn't rule out anything."

    I know it's too soon to really be trying to locate any matches. I didn't have anything better to do and was frustrated in my local searching, so I decided to run a couple of searches on NCMEC's website in WI and the 3 closest states, this was the only missing child that seemed to stick out based on the info given.

    It's a possibility. Are you going to forward it to the Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Department?

    Ten days after authorities released new details about the partially decomposed remains of a woman found in a creek, her identity remains a mystery.

    Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Lt. Bill Flood said Wednesday the new details generated about 15 leads but none panned out.

    and

    Authorities say the remains are those of a 15- to 21-year-old who was probably knock-kneed and pigeon-toed.

    (So it seems that LE has narrowed the age range of the victim. Hoppy)
