Clark County Jane Doe (1986)

The mummified body of a woman aged twenty-five to thirty-five was discovered inside a mine shaft near the town of Antelope in Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada, on September 27, 1986. The subject was white, five feet six inches tall (168 cm) and weighed between 92 and 112 pounds (42 and 51 kilograms). She appeared to be a transient, as the walls in the shaft were lined with wood and appeared to be a makeshift shelter. She was discovered underneath a blanket, although she was naked. Several articles of clothing, a shirt, bra, a single sock and a pair of jeans as well as some personal items were found in or near the entrance, which included toothpaste, lip gloss and a pair of glasses. Examination of the body indicated she was a mother of at least one child and had had some dental work done. All of her adult teeth were intact. The cause of her death could not be determined.
