Circumstances of Discovery
The victim was located in a wooded area by local hunters in Bear Creek near Stewart Point Road on December 2, 1991. The hunters stumbled upon a skull while looking for raccoons.

The majority of the woman's skeleton was found 40 yards away from where hunters found the skull. Based on the clothes she was wearing, investigators believe she died in the fall or wintertime.

A cause of death could not be determined because no detectable injuries could be found on the skeleton. However, due to the isolated location of the remains, authorities concluded the case was a probable homicide.
