Circumstances of Discovery
The victim was last seen alive at a truck stop trying to hitch a ride. She was struck by a vehicle on Interstate 10 near Henderson. Officials determined that her blood-alcohol content was 0.3 at the time of the impact, far greater than the legal limit. Her death was ruled an accident.

She is believed to be French speaking, based on her clothing and other things, but from Quebec or perhaps another French speaking area rather than from Cajun country.

Her body was exhumed in 2006 for DNA information and then reburied.
