Overview of 2016 Madison County Jane Doe

On Saturday afternoon, September 17, 2016, near Madisonville, Texas. A man mowing his pasture in the 7800 block of I-45's southbound feeder road hit an object. When he stopped mowing, he discovered a black suitcase, which contained the skeletal remains of a little girl wearing a pink dress and a diaper, with a feeding tube. She was wrapped in white plastic bags.

It is believed the child had a condition called micrognathia, which may have affected her ability to eat on her own and she would have required medical care during her life. Forensic experts believe she was Caucasian or Hispanic, initial Pollen analysis of the remains suggested she was from the Southwest United States, most likely Southeast Arizona, or an adjacent region of Mexico. Recent genealogy research also revealed she had Native American lineage.
