Overview of 1999 Huerfano County Jane Doe

Who is 1999 Huerfano County Jane Doe?

A man discovered the woman's skeletal remains located in an old, abandoned refrigerator in a secluded rural area on Road 610, 3.5 miles off of Exit 56 (Red Rocks Road), three miles northwest of Walsenburg, in the general vicinity of I-25. The discovery came about when the Huerfano County Sheriff's Office received a letter dated August 10, 1999, from a man in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In the letter he stated that he came upon the remains while walking through the area three weeks before.

A deputy was then dispatched to the scene. The man indicated that he found a refrigerator lying on its side with the door partly open with what appeared to be skeletal remains. After further investigation, law enforcement located a scapula and jaw as well as additional bone fragments within 100 feet of the refrigerator. The trash in the refrigerator was dated 1988-1992.

The refrigerator was a Philco brand, model unknown, but possibly a 1940s to 1960s model. It had a lever handle and was a single door unit. Her case is being treated as a homicide.
