Leflore County Jane Doe 1990

Description
On January 18, 1990 a Black female passenger was found dead in the sleeper cab of an overturned semi-truck.  According to Trooper Tim Baker of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the passenger was believed to have been picked up as a hitchhiker by the surviving semi driver in Cleveland, Ohio, approximately 1000 miles northeast of the place where the semi crashed in LeFlore County, Oklahoma. She may have gone by the name of “Beth” or “Baby”. The woman was described by the medical examiner as being between 30 and 50 years old, with short brown hair and brown eyes, approximately 5’1” tall, bearing a C-section scar on her abdomen. Exhumation of the remains in 2017 produced DNA data, but she remains unidentified.
