Newhall Jane Doe (1980)

On the 26th of August 1980, the body of a young girl was discovered near a pair of water towers in Newhall, California. Her remains had been somewhat disarranged, and her cause of death was found to be a single .25 bullet to one of the temporal bones of her skull. It is believed she was found sometime between a few weeks and 2 months after her death.

Jane Doe is described as a white female, between the ages of 15 and 20, and standing between 5″4′ and 5″8′. She had light brown or blonde hair, her ears were pierced and she was wearing a gold-coloured hoop earing at the time of her death. Four of her teeth displayed fillings. The only item of clothing found with her body was a red sweatshirt with a zipper.

Jane Doe is a victim of serial killers Doug Clark and Carol Bundy. Carol Bundy later told police that this particular victim was a prostitute from Hollywood. She then expanded and said that Doug had shot her in the back of the head during a sexual act whilst inside his vehicle, and then dumped her body in Newhall after raping her corpse.

Although 23 people have been ruled out as being Jane Doe, her true identity still remains a mystery as it has been for the past 41 years.

Do you know who she is?
