June 15, 1993, a teenage girl was discovered in southwest Douglas County near the Rainbow Falls Campground.
She was found wearing only a black Harley-Davidson T-shirt and a few pieces of jewelry. She appears to be between 16 and 19 years old and weighed approximately 140 pounds. Authorities believe that she died after being struck on the head and that she may have been a runaway. In 2003 a facial reconstruction of her skull was completed. The following photographs depict the reconstruction and include photos of the tee-shirt and jewelry she was found wearing.
Jane Doe is the only individual who died in Douglas County and remains unidentified, according to available records. The Douglas County Coroner’s Office is committed to identifying her and has undertaken steps to finally reunite her with her family.
Her remains were exhumed from her grave in the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Castle Rock, Colorado on October 12, 2012. Bone samples have been sent to the University of North Texas in order to obtain more complete DNA analysis.
Step 2 involved sending Jane Doe’s skull to Samantha Steinberg, a phenomenal forensic artist at the Miami-Dade Police Department. Samantha has developed these forensic drawings of what Jane Doe looked like in 1993. Do you recognize her?
The Douglas County Coroner’s Office will continue on its quest to identify Jane Doe – if you recognize this drawing or have any information that would help identify Jane Doe, please contact the Douglas County Coroner’s Office at 303-814-7150 or at [email protected]
