On the 17th of May 1968, the body of a female was discovered in Georgetown, Kentucky, wrapped in canvas material and a towel. Her body had decomposed so much that it was beyond recognition, and authorities were unable to determine her cause of death at this time.
However, they were later able to determine that she had died from asphyxiation from being strangled and she had also suffered trauma from being beaten.
Jane Doe, who had the nickname “Tent Girl”, remained unidentified for 29 years. After continued efforts by Doe Network co-founder Todd Matthews, “Tent Girl” was formerly identified through DNA testing as 24-year-old Bobbie Taylor. Bobbie was originally from Lexington, Kentucky, and she was married and had children of her own.
Bobbie’s late husband, George Earl Taylor, was identified as the prime suspect in Bobbie’s murder. However, he died in 1987 from cancer.
Bobbie’s case has never been officially closed, nor have there been any other suspects in her case.
