New Brighton Jane Doe 2000


On September 15, 2000, a teenage couple out for a stroll through Long Lake Regional Park in New Brighton, Minnesota, stumbled upon the mummified remains of a woman in a swampy area of the park.  

The Caucasian woman was estimated to be between 25-50 years old, 

5’5” tall with strawberry blonde to red medium/long hair. There was no clothing remaining, but one white tennis shoe was located near the body.  

The woman’s cause of death could not be determined due to the level of decomposition; however, investigators believe she was the victim of a homicide and had possibly been stabbed.
