Forty two years ago, in August 1971, a young girl was discovered deceased with no identification near the California/Oregon border by campers. She was found in a side road, south of Rough and Ready Creek on the east side of highway 199, or Redwood Highway, about one-fifth of a mile off the highway.
On August 26, 1971 - a report about the case appeared in The Bulletin
(now called The IV News), in Cave Junction, Oregon. It was titled
- 'Girl's Body Still Not Identified'. The full report in the Bulletin
can be viewed by clicking on the photo.
In 2013 we are no closer at identifying this girl. Forensic science has determined the girl was 5' 4" or 64" tall, slim, had auburn hair and well-filled teeth. She was wearing full length Wrangler jeans, misses' size 13-14 slim, brown shoes with brass buckles, a light colored sweatshirt and a pink and beige coat with large pink buttons. Photos of the girl's clothing, footwear and two rings found at the crime scene, can be viewed in the full case report at NamUS here.
We don't even have any conclusive evidence that the girl is even from the USA. She could have just been visiting from another country, who knows - and that's why we are inviting anyone from anywhere who might know anything to solve this crime. Can you help name her?
