The FBI and other law enforcement agencies need your help to identify Lee County Jane Doe.
Her skeletal remains were found on January 28, 2012 at a trailer park on Hurst Street, Opelika, Lee County, Alabama. The authorities think that she was between 4-7 years old. Please take a look to see if you recognize this child.
Lee County Jane Doe probably died in a span of 8 months to two years before she was found. This places her estimated death between 2010 and 2012.
Her hair was black. It was of medium length and was styled in small tight curls. Due to the condition of her remains we do not know the color of her eyes. DNA tests so far are incomplete.
Her height and weight are unknown as the remains found do not form a complete skeleton. We miss her torso, one or both of her limbs, and one or both of her hands. Hence there are no fingerprints on file.
Aside from being incomplete, her remains were not even found all together but within about 50 feet of her skull. Her lower jaw, multiple bones, and some of her hair were found in a heavy wooded area within 50-75 feet of residences.
The anthropological assessment of her bones suggested that she was likely abused and malnourished while alive. The FBI lists her cause of death as probably homicide.
A long-sleeve pink shirt with heart buttons and small ruffles near the neckline was found near her skeletal remains. However, it is not sure that it belonged to this little girl.
