Circumstances of Recovery: Remains found in a wooded area east of Old Dixie Highway at 269 Street.
The US Army Criminal Investigation Command is offering a $15,000 reward for information about a Jane Doe found in Training area 9 of Joint Base Lewis-McChord Washington 98433 (Pierce County).
On October 13, 2010, the skull of an adult female, approximately 25-40 years old, was
discovered in the vicinity of Spanaway McKenna Highway (WA 507) and Pacific Avenue
South (WA 7) inside of Training Area 9. After an extensive search of the area by CID and
other law enforcement agencies, only a skull and several vertebrae were recovered at the
scene. The rest of the victim’s remains have never been found.
CID wants to stress the most identifiable and notable feature that may lead to the identity of the deceased is a defect of unknown origin on the victim’s front tooth on the lower jaw (pictured above). Although important, the facial reconstruction pictured above is a recreation based on all available forensic evidence and may not be an exact likeness of the deceased. The victim’s race is still unknown at this time, and it is possible that the victim could have been of a mixed ancestry. The Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner estimates the victim to have died between April and June of 2010.
The testing revealed the victim may have spent her childhood/adolescence and the last ten years prior to her death in Oregon or California.

Recent scientific testing on the remains of a teenage girl that were found in Pennsylvania in 1973 show she was
likely from the Southeast, possibly the Carolinas, according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited
On Oct. 10, 1973, the body of a young woman was found on the Edward Martin Military Reserve in Fort
Indiantown Gap, Pa. She is known only as Jane Doe.
An anthropological exam has concluded the teen had been dead for up to three weeks, the center announced
Thursday. The teen was white, possibly of southeast European descent and 16 to 19 years old. She was 5-feet-5 to
5-feet-8 inches tall, the exam showed.
No cause or manner of death could be determined, according to the center. Today's top news by email The local news you need to start your day Enter Email Address The center facilitated a chemical isotope analysis on the remains through the University of South Florida’s Forensic Anthropology Center and associate professor Erin Kimmerle. The analysis concluded she was probably born and raised in the Southeast, including central-east Texas, eastern Oklahoma, Arkansas, southern Missouri, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, central and southern West Virginia, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, southern and eastern Virginia into southern Maryland and Delaware shores. The center created a 3D facial reconstruction of the teen using a CT scan of the skull found in Pennsylvania in 1973. Anyone with information about Jane Doe is urged to call the Pennsylvania State Police at 717-865-2194 or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-842-5678).
The area she was found in is marked by the black star. The green shaded areas are where the isotopes indicate she was born and raised in.
"We know her family and friends are still alive," Schweiker said. "Her story needs to get into their hands."
Anyone with any information about Jane Doe is asked to call Cpl. Nathan Trate at the Pennsylvania State Police Jonestown at 717-865-2194 or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-842-5678).
