On the 20th of July, 1977, the body of an unknown female was discovered in the Mississippi River between Childs and Warner Road in Saint Paul, Minnesota. She was described as a white female between the ages of 16 and 20. Her cause of death has not been stated.
She remained unidentified for over 45 years until the 2nd of August 2022, when the DNA Doe Project announced that they had been able to officially identify her as Mary Jensen using genetic genealogy.
At the time of her death, Mary was wearing a green, red, and blue vertically striped shirt with thinner lateral straps, high-waisted blue jeans, brown knee-high socks, size 5 underwear and size 8-9 shoes.
There do not seem to be any photos of Mary Jensen available online, so below is the reconstruction image that Carl Coppelman produced in 2021.
Rest in Peace, Mary.
