On the 4th of May, 1984, the body of an elderly woman was found in Westby, Wisconsin. She had been badly beaten to death, and both of her hands had been severed from her body. Authorities believe this was a way of preventing the identification of Jane Doe.
Vernon County Jane Doe is described as being an elderly woman, between 50 and 63 years old. She stood between 5″5′ and 5″6′ and weighed 150 pounds. She had short brown hair that was greying near her temples, blue eyes, and she wore full dentures and a vertical scar on her abdomen.
She was wearing a multi-coloured coat, a black dress covered in a blue and white paisley print, a blue turtleneck sweater, and nylon stockings. All brand labels on the clothing had been removed, and there were distinctive buttons on her clothes that had unique stitching.
Pollen found on her clothing indicated that she had spent time in New Mexico or Arizona before her death.
Vernon County Jane Doe is currently undergoing testing by the DNA Doe Project.
