Jane Doe B-17

Jane Doe B-17 is the name given to the skeletal remains of a young woman who is one of the two unidentified Green River victims. Her remains are commonly listed as being discovered on the 2nd of January, 1986 but some of her remains have been linked to a discovery on the 18th of February, 1984. Her remains were discovered in Kings County, Washington.

Her remains were found a few years after she had been murdered. The exact cause of her death has not been released, but Gary Ridgway (the Green River Killer) claimed responsibility for her murder and placed her remains in close proximity to his other victims near a cemetery.

Although Gary Ridgway’s claim is disputed by investigators, he claimed that she died sometime between the spring and summer of 1983.

Jane Doe B-17 is described as being a white female, between the ages of 14 and 19, standing between 5″4′ and 5″8′ and weighing between 120 and 145 pounds. She had naturally blonde hair, several fillings in her teeth, and possibly blue or green eyes.

Isotope testing managed to pinpoint Jane Doe’s possible geographic locations to Alaska, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and North Dakota. There is also a possibility she was from the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador.
