    The victim's partial skeletal remains were found wrapped in a 6-by-8-foot green tarp secured by 72 feet of rope and buried on private property 40 feet from the Coosa River at 308 Galdis Road. The landowner, who has rarely visited the property since 1991, found the remains while gardening. There was evidence that lime had been placed around the burial site to mask the smell.

    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:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    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.

    She looks a lot like a woman I know from my church. If I ever see a missing person's report of someone who looks like her, I'll be able to remember quite easily!

    This medallion was somehow attached to her skull. I read that a medallion was also attached to the skull of another doe in the area, but I can't get additional details about a possible connection.

    I'm not finding information about these medallions. A poster at Reddit claims that a male and female doe from adjoining counties were found with the matching medallions attached to their skulls. Reddit does not require posters to verify information or provide citations, so I hesitate to use this as a source of information.

    A skull and upper jaw bone were found on the roadside at 683 Old Autaugaville Road in Prattville. The skull had a medallion glued to it (a photograph is available). The location of discovery was Prattville, Autauga County, Alabama on September 29, 2007'

    I am unable to locate a photograph of the medallion from the male doe.

    This makes absolutely no sense to me, but Namus has a file on the male doe, but not the female doe.

    https://identifyus.org/cases/5000

    In the Namus file, the does is identified as a 40-60 year old female. In the Doenetwork file, the doe is identified as a 40-60 year old male.

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1712umal.html

    https://identifyus.org/cases/5000


    There is a photograph of a medallion that is attached to the Namus file for the doe found in Autauga County. However, this is the exact photograph the Doenetwork used for the 30-40 year old female doe that was found in Titus, Elmore, County. This same medallion couldn't have been on both does.

    I think Doenetwork and Namus need to get their information in order and figure out where this medallion was found and if there were two medallions, were they the same type of medallions.

    @Akoya, did you find anywhere that showed a pic of the back of the star? I'd love to know if there's a marking on the back. I've been researching these stars and many are made for a spiritual reason. I can't find one with the moons and stars on it like this one, though. Still searching.
