On May 14 of this year, I posted about the Chesterfield County Jane Doe. She has since been identified. Her name is Christy Lynn Floyd.
From WSLS: “Chesterfield County Police announced on August 12, 2020 that the remains belong to Christy Lynn Floyd, who was 16 and lived in the 2300 block of West Grace Street in Richmond when she disappeared.
Investigators released several pictures of Floyd on Wednesday, including a photo of Floyd with a male whose identity is unknown.”
Please check the WSLS website to see if you recognize either the man, the baby, or the house in which the pictures were taken.
From WSLS: “On Aug. 7, 1986, workers were unloading trash from the School Street transfer station in Richmond at a Chesterfield landfill when they noticed what appeared to be human remains.”
In 2019, authorities teamed up with Parabon NanoLabs, a DNA technology company in Reston, Virginia. They specialize in DNA phenotyping. This is a process that tries to predict the physical appearance and ancestry from the unidentified DNA carrier. You can see their prediction in the picture.
Authorities believe the unknown woman may have had ties to the following areas: the Richmond metropolitan area, Charlottesville, Buena Vista, Lynchburg, Baltimore, and Maryland.
Note that it appeared that her remains were kept in a relatively cool environment such as a refrigerator, or in a semi-air tight container to delay decomposition. This reminded me of Anne Theresa Noblett who was found frozen.
Someone went through great lengths to hide her identity, her exact cause of death, and her exact date of death. Her hands were sawed off, her head is missing, and only the left leg was found.
If you have any information about Christy Lynn Floyd, including the identity of the unknown man, please contact the Chesterfield County Unsolved/Major Investigations Group at 804-717-6024.
Rest in peace, Christy Lynn Floyd.
