COPS IN Washington State have exhumed the remains of a woman found murdered in 1969 in the hope her DNA could crack two cold cases. King County detectives say the bodies of two women were found on a rural road. On June 5, 1969, Jane Doe's decomposed body was found off a dirt road a mile west of the Tolt River Bridge in east King County. Cops named the unidentified murder victim “Tolt Hill Jane Doe.”
A portion of a skull from a second victim--a young adult female--was found in 2006 about three blocks from where Jane Doe's lifeless body was found. The second victim has also never been identified. Now, cold case cops suspect the two slayings may be linked.
Sgt. John Urquhart said: “They hope to first find out who the person was, then find her killer."
“Tolt Hill Jane Doe” was described by investigators as a dark-haired white woman 23 to 25-years-old. She was about 5'1" or 5'2", weighing 105 to 115 lbs. She died weeks before she was found.
Anyone with information on this cold case is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 206-296-3311. The Sheriff's Office has around 190 cold-case homicides or missing persons that are likely homicides. Some cases date back to the early 1950s. MORE FROM THE SEATTLE PI
