From THE DOE NETWORK:
Serial killer Gerald Eugene Stano confessed to her murder. He told investigators the woman was a prostitute he met on Main Street in 1978 or 1979. He said he choked her to death and took her to the wooded area. Years later, he remembered the slogan on her shirt, "Do it in the dirt," an advertising slogan for a motorcycle manufacturer. No charges were filed in accordance with a plea agreement.
An anthropological exam revealed she may have performed repetitive activity with her arms and shoulders during her lifetime.
Metallic amalgam restorations on # 2, 3, 14, 18-19, 30-31. Deep, non-carious pit on #17 suggests lost filling. # 9 slightly shoveled. #16 and 32 lost/extracted antemortem or were congenitally absent. Postmortem dental radiographs available. The fillings were of poor quality and the material used to fill the teeth was consistent with older material that was no longer being used in the United States.
Most of the clothing was in bad condition. The only evidence of the waist measurement was an elastic around the shorts which was 19 1/2" and would stretch to 25 1/2".
She carried a white handkerchief and .27 cents in change.
