Jane Doe was found in the Schuylkill River 50 feet west of Penrose Ave., in Schuylkill River, near oil refinery.

This location is 50 feet west of the Pratt Bridge.  Access to the river at this location would not have been an easy task.  The Lower Schuylkill River is tidal at this location, near the junction of the larger Delaware River.  I have to wonder if Jane Doe went into the Schuylkill River further west and floated toward the bridge as the tide ebbed.
