Maury County Jane Doe 1975

On February 14, 1975 two hunters found human skeletal remains in a wooded area 2 miles from Joe Brown Rd off Highway 99 East near I-65 in Maury County, Tennessee. Also found near the body were bones from a puppy. A red shell blouse, flowered blue slacks, female undergarments, and black Italian-made wedge shoes were found with her remains. A forensic anthropologist concluded the deceased was a Black/African American female about 5’ 4″ tall, weighing approximately 132 pounds, with black hair. Authorities speculate she had been in an automobile accident or run over by a car during the autumn of 1974, 6-9 months prior to being found.
