What is known about Princess Doe:
Discovery date of the body: Thursday, July 15th, 1982 ~ 8:00am
The body of Princess Doe was discovered by local cemetery maintenance workers on the southeast corner of the cemetery, just over the steep bank that leads down to the creek below. The cemetery has been modified and expanded over the years so the exact location is difficult to pin point. Law enforcement has used a photo comparison from 1982 and present day to come up with an excellent idea of where the body was found.

The victim was found with red nail polish on the right hand only.
No known surgical scars, birth marks or tattoos. Scars or marks on the head/face area would not be known due to the condition of the body.
The front two teeth are slightly darker than the other teeth. Dental records are available for comparison.
The victim’s appendix and tonsils were intact
The victim was not pregnant and had never given birth. No conclusive evidence of sexual assault was found but once again, this was difficult to determine because of the exposure of the body.
Toxicology did not reveal any traces of drugs but is not 100% conclusive because of the time lapse between the death and discovery of the body
It is believed that the body was discovered after 1-3 weeks of exposure – this was difficult to determine because of the hot/humid weather in the area at the time.
