Overview of 1984 Spokane County Jane Doe

The victim's nude, dismembered partial remains were located on the south bank of the Spokane River, .08 mile west of the T.J. Meenach Bridge. Her head had been removed. Her arms were dismembered at the midpoint of both wrists and the legs at the mid calf level. Her hands and feet were never recovered.

A single hand was recovered on July 18, 1984, but tests proved it was not hers through mtDNA comparison.

Years later, on April 19, 1998, a skull was found on a vacant lot at 7th Avenue and Sherman Street in Spokane. The skull was determined through DNA and tool markings, to belong to the victim.
