A cash reward of up to $2,500 is now available to help identify a murdered pregnant woman found by hunters in the Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon in August of 1978.
The skeletal remains of the woman and a fetus, knotted coaxial cable, zippers, a white bra or halter top, red Catalina-brand pants (size 15/16), scraps of white cloth with red hearts and ankle-high boots were discovered in and near a shallow grave straddling a wooded game trail near Finley Creek in Union County, Oregon.
The woman was estimated to be between 5’1” and 5’3” and weighed approximately 115-125 pounds. She had light-colored hair, possibly blonde or sandy brown. The fetus was estimated to be near to full-term.
Investigators believe the woman had been killed in the early to mid-1970s. Redgrave Research Forensic Services has provided a composite sketch of what the woman may have looked like.
More information about the unidentified woman can be found at www.facebook.com/finleycreekjanedoe. Volunteers with the Finley Creek Jane Doe Task Force have led the effort to identify the woman and her unborn infant.
