From THE DOE NETWORK:
She may have been White mixed with Native American.
Dentals were well-cared for; some fillings were present.
She wore a stone-washed "Levi" denim jacket.
She was found in the weeds in a remote area by an abandoned farm house on Oscar Talley Road, midway between Lanagan and Pineville, Missouri.
She was hogtied with six different types of material: nylon rope, lead rope, coaxial cable, telephone cable, parachute cord and clothesline. The parachute cord is believed to have been military issued because it was not commerically available in 1990. Because of the way she was bound - both hands behind the back and tied to one leg with a shoelace - it is believed that she was also raped.
A single blond hair not belonging to the victim was found on the body. Investigators believe the victim may have been murdered at or near the location her body was found based on a witness statement that she heard a woman scream in that proximity on Halloween night — about the same time the victim is believed to have died.
