Kenora “Millie” Jane Doe 2009

Kenora Jane Doe

On June 17, 2009 a hiker walking near the Trans-Canada Highway discovered the body of a White/Caucasian woman in a small, one-person tent located in a wooded area near Miller Rapids Road, Kenora, Ontario, Canada. The woman, believed to be Canadian, was dressed in hiking-type clothing, and equipment for rugged hiking and camping was found near the body. A forensic evaluation revealed the woman was 35 to 55-years-old, 5’ 4, 110 pounds, and had shoulder-length, light brown hair. Cause of death was determined to be accidental carbon monoxide poisoning from a hibachi stove found in the tent. During the autopsy it was discovered the deceased had undergone major reconstruction surgery of her jaw and face, which was most likely conducted in a major surgical hospital 20-30 years prior to her death. Investigators believe she had died in the tent one day to a week prior to being discovered.
