Vernon County Jane Doe (1984)

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 off her body. Authorities believe this was a way of preventing 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 graying near her temples, blue eyes, she wore full dentures and had 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 of the clothing had been removed, and there was 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.
