Police hope to solve decades old Jane Doe case with new forensic image
The Vernon County Sheriff’s Office is hoping to get help from the public to help solve the case of this Jane Doe homicide case from more than 30 years ago.
They released a forensic reconstructed image Wednesday of the unidentified woman who was found murdered in May of 1984 in a ditch in the Township of Coon which is in rural Westby.
Her remains were exhumed by authorities in August so forensic testing could be done and this reconstructed image could be created by a forensic artist in Arizona.
This Jane Doe is described as a white female, between the ages of 50 and 63-years of age with graying hair described as being salt and pepper in color.
The pattern of the clothing she is shown wearing reflects what she was wearing when she was found.
She died from severe head trauma and both of her hands were cut off.
The Vernon County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance with the use of the new state of the art image of Jane Doe to generate new leads or possibly lead to her identification with this more accurate image
