On October 20, 1967 a pair of hunters found the partially nude body of a young woman in a patch of woods in Blendon Township, Hudsonville, Michigan. Although not determined to be associated with the case, a white Rambler-brand vehicle was seen in the area prior to the discovery. The young victim was a Black female between 16 and 22 years of age, approximately 5’ 7” tall and weighing 90-100 pounds. She was wearing yellow/gold slacks, pink Bermuda shorts and men’s light blue socks. She had an extra tooth behind the right upper incisor. The medical examiner determined she died of blunt-force trauma and strangulation, and was found three to seven days after her death. Unable to identify the girl, authorities buried her in Blendon Cemetery in Hudsonville.
