Tuscaloosa County Jane Doe

On April 18th, 1982 a body of a female was discovered in Slaughter Creek, close to the Sipsey River in Romulus, Tuscaloosa County, Alabama.

The female had been beaten, sexually assaulted and strangled. She died from strangulation.

The female was around 34-38 years old at the time of her death. She was 5″4′ (162cm), and weighed 110-115 pounds (49-52kg). She had brown shoulder-length hair and brown eyes, and a visible scar below her right eyebrow. Her complexation indicated that she regularly engaged in outdoor activity. The woman also wore an upper partial denture.

At the time of her death, she was wearing knitted blue pants, a long sleeved blue top, white undergarments and tennis shoes.

It could be possible that the lady was fishing at the area, and killed there. There were disturbances in the earth close to where the lady was found.

Her body revealed signs that she may have given birth to at least one child during her lifetime. Her body was exhumed in 2013 for additional examination and to obtain a DNA sample.
