Otay Jane Doe

On February 14th, 1978, the body of a young girl was discovered in Otay, California.

Jane Doe was between 14 – 18 years old, she was a white female, and weighed between 85 to 90 pounds. She was between 5’and 5′ 1″ tall, and her eye colour is presumed to be brown, although the autopsy has not been able to confirm this. She had brown hair, which was tied back with a rubber band, and both of her ears had been pierced.

Her right ear was deformed and smaller than her left ear, which has been noted as a distinctive feature.

Jane Doe died from prolonged torture and poisoning two days before she was found, but the type of poison used has never been released by authorities.

Her body had also been set on fire after she had died, which caused her body to be unrecognisable.

She also had a root canal that had been done on her right bottom tooth, which had split into two pieces.

The only clothes she was wearing were blueish overalls and a white top with blue flowers.

A reward of $1,000 is being offered for any information leading to a positive identification of this poor Jane Doe.
