Matlida Ottawa Co Jand Doe

On November 6, 1994 rabbit hunters discovered human skeletal remains in a cornfield near a wooded area just north of I-96 in Wright Township, Ottawa County, near Coopersville, Michigan. Investigators believe the victim was most likely dumped at the site between May and September of 1994. A forensic anthropologist determined the victim to be a Hispanic/Latino female between 35 and 45 years old, 5′ 8″ tall, and weighing about 160 pounds. She had wavy brown-auburn hair. Black stretch pants, pink underwear, and blue high heeled shoes were found near the body. Detectives theorize that Matilda may have been a victim in a series of murders in the Grand Rapids area. Her cause of death remains undetermined.
