Unidentified White Female
Located on January 27, 1993 in Jefferson County, Illinois.
Estimated age: 30 - 50 years old
Distinguishing Characteristics: Approximately shoulder length reddish-brown hair.
Unusual skeletal characteristics of the skull and upper front cervical vertebrae indicate the victim suffered from chronic spasmodic torticollis or wryneck, a condition which causes stress on the muscles which are responsible for maintaining upright head posture. Evidence of a healed traumatic lesion on the skull suggests this condition may have been preceded by head trauma; this would have resulted in the victim maintaining a leftward tilt of the head.
On January 27, 1993, the head of this female was found in a wooded area in the Wayne Fitzgerald State Park in Jefferson County, Illinois.
