Two “Green River Killer” Victims Remain Nameless
March 23, 2015 at 2:17pm

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Gary Ridgway abducted and murdered dozens of women in the state of Washington. Dubbed the “Green River Killer,” Ridgway eluded the law for nearly 20 years before DNA evidence finally caught up with him. Ridgway was arrested in 2001 and ultimately pleaded guilty to murdering 49 women in King County, Washington. He is currently serving a life sentence without parole.

Among his victims were two females who have remained nameless since the 1980s. Although Ridgway confessed to murdering these young women, he did not know who they were. Investigators are looking to the public for help to give these women back their names.

Jane “Burien” Doe


The remains of a Caucasian girl between the ages of 12 and 18 were found on March 21, 1984 near a Little League baseball park in the Burien area of King County. Her cause of death was determined to be strangulation, and investigators say she was murdered sometime in 1983.

She was between five-feet-two inches tall and five-feet-eight inches tall. No personal items or clothing were found with her remains to help investigators identify her.

Gary Leon Ridgway (born February 18, 1949) is an American serial killer known as the Green River Killer. He was initially convicted of 48 separate murders and later confessed to nearly twice that number. As part of his plea bargain, an additional conviction was added, bringing the total number of convictions to 49, making him the most prolific American serial killer in history according to confirmed murders. He murdered numerous women and girls in Washington State during the 1980s and 1990s.[1] Most of his victims were alleged to be prostitutes and other women in vulnerable situations, including underage runaways. The press gave him his nickname after the first five victims were found in the Green River before his identity was known.[2] He strangled the women, usually by hand but sometimes using ligatures. After strangling them, he would dump their bodies in forested and overgrown areas in King County, often returning to the dead bodies to have sexual intercourse with them.[3]

On November 30, 2001, as he was leaving the Kenworth truck factory where he worked in Renton, Washington, he was arrested for the murders of four women whose cases were linked to him through DNA evidence.[3]As part of a plea bargain wherein he agreed to disclose the locations of still-missing women, he was spared the death penalty and received a sentence of life imprisonment without parole.

Jane Doe B-10 is one of three unidentified Green River victims.

Case

The Jane Doe's skeletal remains were found on March 21, 1984. She had died a year or more before, sometime in the early 1980s. Gary Ridgway, who was a formerly unidentified serial killer, stated he had strangled the victim and had picked her up near the Pacific Highway South, indicating she could have been a runaway/hitchhiker or possibly a prostitute. Ridgway thought she was in her early 20s, but it is believed that Jane Doe B-10 was under 19.

Physical characteristics
Decomposition prevented assessment of eye color
Some sources state her hair was brown, where others state it was undetermined.
She was likely left-handed.

On March 21, 1984, a dog belonging to the Highline Baseball Field caretaker brought home a human femur. The caretaker called police, and a search began of a swampy, wooded area behind center field at the western-most baseball diamond, just west of the intersection of 16 th Avenue South and South 146th Street. This was one-half mile from where Ridgway killed Shawnda Summers and dumped her body in October of 1982.

Over the next few days, police recovered the skeletal remains of Jane Doe "B10." As searching began on the second day, a bloodhound found the remains of yet a third victim, Cheryl Wims, 200 yards to the north of the crime scene.

Repeated attempts by investigators to identify Jane Doe "B10" have been unsuccessful; to this day, the identity of Jane Doe "B10" remains a mystery. A forensic anthropologist concluded that the remains were those of a left-handed Caucasian female. She stood about 5'2" to 5'7" and had a healed fracture in her skull. She was about fifteen years old.

On the first day of interviews with Task Force detectives, Ridgway admitted killing a
woman near the baseball fields off Des Moines Way. He thought she was Caucasian, in her early 20's, and had brown hair. He thought he picked her up in the Riverton (Tukwila) area. He said he killed her during the day and wanted to make certain she was dead, because he had attempted to kill another woman nearby, but she had escaped. (This woman was never identified.)

Over the course of interviews, Ridgway made contradictory statements about whether he returned to have sex with the unidentified woman's corpse. Police took Ridgway to the North Airport site in June 2003. After some initial confusion, he pointed to the area where Jane Doe "B10" was found.

Did you know these women? Sheriff publicizes facial reconstructions of 3 Green River victims
By Jennifer Sullivan

Seattle Times staff reporter
White female found March 21, 1984. Could have been as young as 12 years old.

African-American or mixed-race female found Dec. 20, 1985. Was 18 to 24 years old at the time of her death.
Four years after Gary Ridgway pleaded guilty to murdering 48 women, the King County Sheriff's Office has released photos of three victims who were never identified.

Investigators hope someone might recognize the facial reconstruction photos of the three victims. Ridgway, known as the Green River killer, admitted to killing them in the spring or summer of 1983, but he didn't know their identities. Detectives have never been able to figure out who they are.

"He didn't remember much, but that's pretty typical of Gary. He knew very little of them," said sheriff's spokesman John Urquhart said.

The facial reconstructions were done based upon women's skulls, Urquhart said. The women's hair styles are only a "best guess," he said.

Urquhart said investigators took so long to release the sketches because they had to find somebody to do the facial reconstructions. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children composed the images, which were made of clay and enhanced by computer.

The remains of one of the women, believed to be Ridgway's 10th victim, were found March 21, 1984, off Des Moines Memorial Drive in the Burien area. The Caucasian victim may have been as young as 12 at the time of her death.

Another victim, Ridgway's 16th, was found on Dec. 30, 1985, near Mountain View Cemetery in Auburn. The African-American or possibly mixed-race woman was approximately 18 to 24 years old.

Investigators are also seeking the identity of the 17th victim, who was found Jan. 2, 1986, near Mountain View Cemetery. The Caucasian woman was between 14 and 18 years old.

Anyone who recognizes any of the victims is asked to call the King County Sheriff's Office at 206-296-7530.

Green River Killer Gary Ridgway's statement to the court

Wednesday, November 5, 2003 Posted: 9:40 PM EST (0240 GMT)


SEATTLE, Washington (CNN) --Green River Killer Gary Ridgway pleaded guilty Wednesday to 48 counts of aggravated murder as part of a plea-bargain in which he submitted a written statement that was read aloud in court by prosecutor Jeff Baird:

The Judge has asked me to state what I did in my own words that makes me guilty of these crimes. This is my statement:

I killed the forty-eight (48) women listed in the State's second amended information.

In most cases, when I murdered these women, I did not know their names. Most of the time, I killed them the first time I met them and I do not have a good memory for their faces. I killed so many women I have a hard time keeping them straight.

I have reviewed information and discovery about each of the murders with my attorneys, and I am positive that I killed each one of the women charged in the Second Amended Information. I killed them all in King County. I killed most of them in my house near Military Road, and I killed a lot of them in my truck, not far from where I picked them up. I killed some of them outside. I remember leaving each woman's body in the place where she was found

BURIEN JANE DOE: WF, 12-18, Gary Ridgeway victim found in King County, WA - 21 March 1984 IUI0KJg



Count XXIV (24):

In King County, Washington, sometime between January 1, 1982 through March 21,1984, with premeditated intent to cause her death, I strangled an unidentified woman referred to as Jane Doe "B1O" to death. I picked her up, planning to kill her. After killing her, I left her body near the northern boundary of Sea-Tac Airport.

Unidentified Victims
Gary Ridgway admitted to killing of all of these women, but could not supply any significant information that would assist in the identification of these women. The clay reconstructions were done by National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to assist us in identifying the women. Hair styles are only a ‘best guess’.
