Bowmanville Jane Doe 2006

On October 27, 2006 while harvesting dogwood plants a man found human remains in a marshy field near the Darlington Nuclear Plant in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada. Near the body was a ring, size 9.5, stamped “Burns” on the inside. Forensic investigators determined the remains, including skull, femur, and other scattered skeletal parts, were those of a female between 18 and 25 years old. The woman was found with no hair and no clothes. She also had prominent protruding upper teeth. Investigators note that the marshy field where the remains were found was the closest stop off the eastbound exit of Hwy. 401.
