"Jane Doe" composition released from 2006 East Texas cold case

Posted: Updated:

(FROM GREGG COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT) - The skull from a 2006 cold case has been reconstructed in hopes of identifying the victim. 

On October 6, 2006 the burning body of "Jane Doe" was discovered on an oil field right-of way off Fritz Swanson Road in Kilgore. The body was that of a white female, 17 to 22 years of age, 5'3" to 5'5", 100 to 120 pounds, with reddish brown hair and blond highlights.

She was wearing size 7/8 jeans and a mauve or purple colored pull-over sweater. The body was burned beyond recognition. DNA and dental records were obtained at autopsy and those records have been compared with hundreds of missing persons throughout the US and North America without success. A reconstruction of the skull was conducted and that reconstruction image was displayed in the local media and internationally on the internet. Again, no viable information was obtained as to her identity.

On October 2, 2013, an exhumation was conducted at Jane Doe's grave and her skull was used for another reconstruction with new 3D technology. The reconstruction was completed in January, 2014 and recently was made available to the Sheriff's Office.
