Physical Description
Estimated Age: 18-40 years old
Race: White
Gender: Female
Height: Unknown
Weight: Unknown
Hair Color: Unknown
Eye Color: Unknown
Distinguishing Marks/Features: She has a very well-healed nasal fracture which would have been located at the mid-point of her nose (in life) - the point where the nasal bones end and the soft part of the nose begins. The fracture is set so she either received treatment, or it is possibly the result of rhinoplasty. The fact that her nose had been fractured (or surgically altered) would not have been obvious unless someone who knew her at the time saw her post trauma/surgery, or she told someone. She exhibits bone changes indicative of anemia.

Dentals: Available. Nice teeth with visible white fillings on the front teeth. One front tooth appears slightly wider than the other. Smallish silver fillings in some back teeth. Her upper and lower jaws are described as narrow. She also had prominent upper and lower teeth that protruded. Her upper teeth protruded more than her lower teeth.
Fingerprints: Not available.
DNA: Available.

Clothing & Personal Items
Clothing: None. In 2010, a man's hooded Tip Top Tailor striped shirt was found at the scene due to the drop in the water table. It was labeled "Blue Rodeo" and sold between 1995 and 1996.
Jewelry: A small red heart and a woman's digital watch was found near the remains. The straps were stainless steel. Investigators determined that the watch was manufactured by the Omni Watch Company in the early 1980s. It was sold exclusively at the now defunct Consumers Distributing from 1981 to 1983. In 2010, a unique woman's gold garnet ring (size 9) with two one-point diamonds on either side was found at the location when the water table dropped. The ring is believed to have been sold by Burns Jewelers in Oshawa. The store was a family-run business on Simcoe Street from 1923 to 1994. The ring had been made by A&A Manufacturing in Toronto.
Additional Personal Items: A piece of red ribbon was found near the remains.
