Sheridan County Jane Doe

Sheridan County Jane Doe is the name given to an unidentified woman who was found dead on the 13th of April, 1992, along Interstate 90 in Sheridan County, Wyoming.

Her remains were severely decomposed, so a cause of death could not be determined although some reports have suggested she was beaten. Although a precise cause of death could not be determined, it is believed that Jane Doe was murdered. She had also been sexually assaulted.

DNA from the victim linked her killer to the murders of Bitter Creek Betty and Pamela McCall.

In May 2020, Clark Perry Baldwin, 59, from Waterloo, Iowa, was arrested and charged with the murders of Sheridan County Jane Doe, Bitter Creek Betty, Pamela McCall and Pamela’s unborn child.

Whilst it is good news that the person responsible for this murder has been put away, it is still heartbreaking that both Bitter Creek Betty and Sheridan County Jane Doe still do not have their real names back.

Sheridan County Jane Doe was 10 weeks pregnant at the time of her death, and she had previously given birth. She had brown, shoulder-length hair that was wavy, and appeared to be sun-bleached indicating that she spent a lot of time outside.

At the time of her death, she was wearing a blue and white checked “midriff” shirt that was fastened midway across her stomach, and the shirt had “false jewel” and pearl buttons. She was also wearing blue jeans, a light-blue bra size 38C, a white plastic belt, nylon paisley blue panties and brass circular earrings.

She was between 16 and 21 years old, between 5’5″ and 5’6″ and weighed between 110 and 115 lbs.
