In April 2019, the scattered skeletal remains of a woman were found in a wooded area on Mohegan Sun casino land in Uncasville, New London County, Connecticut.
Jane Doe was discovered around 9 a.m. on April 11th, 2019 by public works workers. There is dispute on where Doe was found, however, as some news sources place her discovery as being several miles away from Mohegan Sun while others, such as NAMUS, place her as being found within several hundred feet of one of the casino's parking lots.
She was, according to NAMUS, believed to be between 45 and 65 years old, of Asian descent, and measured at 5 feet tall. Her time of death was believed to have been between 2017-2018. Also on NAMUS is some possibilities for her name, with her first name listed as "Wa", middle name as "L", and surname as "Chan".
Doe's case is being covered by the Mohegan Tribe Police Department, the Connecticut State Police's Major Crime Squad, as well as the New London State Attorney's Office and the State Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

PERSONAL THOUGHTS: (of OP, u/starrysoda)
Since Doe was found so close to Mohegan Sun Casino, is it possible that she was a visitor to the resort? Mohegan Sun is a massive local attraction, which according to their press kit overview, boasts an average of 25,000 daily visitors. With a two year span of her time of death, that's about 18.25 million possible visitors, if every visitor were a unique, one-time only patron.
If Doe visited the resort and did not check into the hotel or use a casino rewards card, there may not even be a record of her visit. And with a two year window of that potential visit, even if there were a record, would it even be possible to narrow down a single person?
