Overview of 1967 Marion County Jane Doe

Hunters found the victim's skeletal remains on the west side of the road about 15 yards into the woods in the Ocala National Forest in the vicinity of SR 315, 1.5 miles south of Fort McCoy on September 30, 1967. The finding was reported to police on October 1 and the remains were subsequently recovered. A medical examiner ruled the woman's cause of death as a homicide due to the presence of a gunshot wound on the skull, although some reports state her death may have been a suicide. She was initially believed to be of Black and Native American descent until further examination. After the victim's exhumation, lead isotopes recovered from the bones indicated she had likely been born and raised in the Southern United States, consistent with those found in Florida residents.
