Overview of 1978 Levy County Jane Doe
A skull and other human bones were discovered in a remote area north of U.S. 27, 2.5 miles east of Bronson, by two men picking rosemary bushes. The remains were actually discovered July 12, but went unreported until the men returned home and discussed the matter. Marks on the skull indicate the decedent may have suffered several blows to the head, which indicated to the investigators she may have been murdered. They further believe the remains were at the site where they were discovered at least 18 months and possibly as long as five years prior to being found. Most of the investigators also believe the entire body was at the scene before the skeleton was disturbed by animals. The remains discovered consist of the skull, maxilla, clavicle, tibia, and first rib only.
