Circumstances of Discovery
A man and his wife discovered the victim's body at approximately 5:30 PM alongside Highway 93 near White Hills, Arizona on September 28, 2016. It is possible that the girl originated from Las Vegas, Nevada (due to the fact that Highway 93 runs through the city) or perhaps somewhere in southern Arizona. Authorities believe the body was dumped at the location it was found and she had died elsewhere.
An autopsy did not reveal her cause of death. Investigators, however, believe foul play was involved in her death and are treating the case as a homicide.
Isotope testing indicated the female was possibly native to the Northern United States or possibly Canada.
