Justice for Native Women

Elmore County Jane Doe, Discovered in Alabama in 2007.
These are artistic and computer renderings of the Elmore County Jane Doe:





Jane Doe was between the ages of 30 and 40 when she was found wrapped in a tarp and buried in a shallow grave on private property in Titus, Alabama on July 22nd, 2007. The landowner, who rarely visited the property since 1991, was gardening when they discovered the remains. Only a partial skeleton was found and so Jane's height and weight could not be estimated. The body was covered with lime to cover the smell. No clothing or other identifying information could be gleaned from the remains. Authorities were not even able to determine whether her remains were male or female until 2009. Forensic analysis showed that Jane suffered a violent death with broken ribs, facial bones, and a head injury. The closest police could come to a date of death was between 2002 and 2007. Authorities believe that Jane Doe was not local to the area.

Description: Jane Doe had long brown hair. No other descriptive information is available.

Tribal information: Elmore County Jane doe is described as being bi-racial, likely of Hispanic or Native American descent.

If you have any information regarding the murder or identity of Elmore County Jane Doe, you are encouraged to contact the Elmore County Sheriff's Department at 334-514-5805.
