Kings County Jane Doe

Kings County Jane Doe

On May 13, 2015 an unidentified decomposed body of a woman was found wrapped in a tarp and dumped on a canal bank south of Corcoran, Kings County, California.

The woman appears to have died between May, 2014 and April, 2015.  She had no identifying marks or jewelry, and the body was too decomposed to obtain fingerprints.  There were no signs of trauma to the body and no indication of some type of violent homicide.  Her age is estimated at least 45 years old, and most likely well over 60.  She was 5 feet to 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and likely had gray or graying blond hair.  She was wearing a horizontally striped T-shirt originally sold by Walmart, black loose-fitting yoga-style pants and Depends-type underwear.  She had no teeth, and it appeared she was prepped for a full set of upper and lower dentures, but none were located.  She had osteoporosis, and if she was mobile would likely have been hunched over. There is a good chance she was bedridden.  An approximation of her likeness was created by the FBI at its laboratory in Quantico, Virginia in June 2017.
