Circumstances of Discovery
The victim was found submerged in a pond in a secluded, wooded area in rural Fond Du Lac County, Wisconsin on November 23, 2008. The location is approximately half way between Fond Du Lac and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Investigators suspect foul play was involved in the victim's death due to the location of her remains and the fact that she wore no shoes or socks when she was found.
She was laid to rest in Cattaraugus Cemetery in Waupun, Wisconsin in 2011
The victim's body was exhumed on April 26, 2018. Advanced testing on isotopes in her bones and teeth are hoped to give clues to where she may have originally come from, had she not been native to Wisconsin. DNA phenotyping is also hoped to be performed on the remains for an estimation of her ethnic background, skin tone, eye color and face shape.
Isotope testing performed on her remains indicated she was most likely native to the Southwestern United States, such as Arizona and New Mexico. She resided in the midwest, such as Southwestern Wisconsin, Northern Iowa or Southern Minnesota for about a year or less before she died.
