Construction workers digging near Eklutna Road outside Eklutna, Alaska, discovered the partial remains of a young woman in a shallow grave on July 21, 1980. Believed to have been a victim of serial killer Robert Hansen, her identity remains a mystery.
The badly beaten body of this murder victim, 4-6 years old, was found naked, wrapped in a worn blanket that had a green, white and rusty red block and diamond pattern, stuffed into a cardboard box that had once held a white bassinet purchased at JC Penney. He was dumped in a garbage-filled area on Susquehanna Road in Philadelphia in February 1957, and remains unidentified.
On August 30, 1987, the decomposed remains of a teen were discovered in Orange County’s Anaheim, California. An autopsy of the young woman’s remains did not reveal cause of death, but did reveal defects in two ribs, consistent with penetrating stab wounds. Her death was ruled a homicide.
Canadian police are asking the public for help identifying a dismembered murder victims whose torso was found at Niagara Falls.
Investigators are hoping that releasing a photo of the tattoo found on a murdered woman will help identify her. The unidentified woman’s body was found June 16, 2012, at Westfield Falls in Middletown, Conn., at around 1 p.m. by hikers, who had followed a trail of what looked like blood.
