New Castle County Jane Doe (1967)

On the 18th of March, 1967, an unidentified woman’s body was discovered off Porter Road, which is located in a rural area in Bear, New Castle County, Delaware. She was located just a few miles from Interstate 95 and US Highway 40.

Jane Doe is described as a white female, between the ages of 16 and 25 years old. She had dark brown hair which was long and curly, brown eyes and was petite in her figure. She stood at 5’2″ and weighed 110lbs. She is estimated to have a bra size of 34DD. Her ears were pierced, but it is thought that she hadn’t worn earrings in a long time. Jane Doe also had a vaccination scar on her front left thigh.

Jane Doe’s teeth were in excellent condition, and it seemed as though they had gone through several restorations. It also appeared that she had seen a dentist within a year before she died.

Jane Doe recently went some ancestry testing and the results suggested that she might be of European, Italian, Greek, or Jewish descent.

When her body was found, her legs were found stuffed inside a large cloth commercial laundry bag which was later determined to come from a laundry and dry cleaning company that was located in Trenton, New Jersey. Jane Doe was only wearing a pair of blue bikini panties and a red ribbon which was used to tie her hair back.

It is suspected that Jane Doe was dumped at this location from a vehicle, and could have potentially come from a different state. Officials have estimated that she died on either the 17th or 18th of March, and was found within 24 hours of her passing away.

If you have any information about Jane Doe, or about who could have been responsible for her death, please contact the Delaware State Police at (302) 741-2828 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678.
