The victim was located in a secluded wooded area, in the George Washington National Forest, off of Virginia Route 33 in Rockingham County, Virginia. The body was partially in a grave, and it was apparent that there was foul play involved.

This route is not a normal trucking route and runs through this county into West Virginia.

In 2008, the daughter of Georgia Nolan believed this woman was her mother after viewing the reconstructions produced. Nolan was later ruled out as being the victim.
