Circumstances of Discovery
A hiker discovered the victim's partially clad body in a makeshift campsite at the Rainbow Falls Campground in the Pike San Isabel National Forest, between Woodland Park and Deckers off Highway 67. Investigators believe she may have been dumped at the location.
She was found within days of a nearby convention of the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club that met June 12-13, at the Horse Creek campground south of Deckers. Investigators have not been able to determine if the victim had any association to that group.
At the time of the initial investigation in 1993, investigators believed the victim to be between 15-19 years old. Since the discovery of her body, several forensic examinations have been conducted and additionally, a series of anthropological reconstructions of the victim's skull have been conducted in an effort to determine her appearance, age, and identity. After the most recent forensic examination of her skull, investigators now believe the victim to be 13 to 20 years old.
No trace of illegal drugs were found in her body, nor evidence of sexual assault by intercourse, however they have not ruled out the possibility of non-intercourse sexual assault/contact. Investigators found characteristics that indicated she might have been very well cared for prior to her death. She was healthy with no sign of disease. A national comparison of her fingerprints have not aided in identification. She may be a runaway from Louisiana.
In 2012, her remains were exhumed in order to obtain further DNA analysis. She is buried at the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Castle Rock, Colorado.
Isotope analysis indicated the victim may have been from one of several Canadian Provinces or Alaska.
