“Judy”

“Judy” is thought to be the name of an unidentified teenager/young woman whose skeletonized remains were discovered off a footpath off a dirt road approximately 3 miles north of Highway 42 (Altoona) and 450 feet east of Highway 19 in Altoona, Florida on the 18th of April, 1984.

Her cause of death is not known, but investigators believe that she is a homicide victim. Her DNA, dental and fingerprints are available for analysis.

Investigators were told that the woman was new to the area, possibly from California, and went by the name Judy.

“Judy” is described as being a white female, between 17 and 20 years of age, 5″-5″1′ and weighing between 90 to 110lbs. She had reddish-brown hair that was fine and straight, her fingernails were painted a coral/orange colour, and she had her left ear pierced but no earring was present. It is unknown if her right ear was pierced. It is also possible that her ribs had been fractured but had now healed.

“Judy” was found wearing wrangler blue jeans in a size 24 inches, tan pants with a brown trim, a black t-shirt reading “Here comes trouble”, a light coloured shirt that read: “Have you kissed your child tonite” on the front, tan canvas shoes with blue trim and a 15-inch metal necklace chain.
