    Hopefully this will jar someone's memory! Unfortunately, I feel the only way this case will be solved is by the DNA Doe Project or another agency that uses like techniques. I always come back to this case. Something about it keeps me intrigued. Cases where the estimated dates of death are so large keep me coming back for some reason. The estimate for her is 1958 to 1978. I still feel that she lived in that neighborhood she was found behind or was visiting someone in that neighborhood. Thanks for the update Coffeenator.

    Skeletal remains were found buried in a quiet Irondequoit neighborhood on July 31, 1988. More than 30 years later, the young woman has never been identified.

    News10NBC's Nikki Rudd found out new testing is being done that could identify the victim who has only been known as "Irondequoit Jane Doe."

    A boy found the bones while playing in his backyard on Bay Knoll Drive. News10NBC interviewed him back in 1988.

    "My dad was gardening, and he told me please stay out of the way. So to keep yourself occupied go dig a hole," said then-12-year-old Richard Pryzgoda. "So I was digging a hole and after I got down about two feet, I came across some bones."

    The home backs up to Irondequoit Bay.

    "It's just a place where the kids, I know they're safe, and I know they're occupying their time," said Richard's mother after the remains were found. "Little did we know that we could actually find parts of a human body back here."

    Fast forward 31 years, we still don't know who this young woman was.

    "It was ruled a suspicious death possibly a homicide," said Irondequoit Police Captain Mark Bean.

    He says there were no signs of trauma. Bean also showed News10NBC pictures never released before from the scene.

    "She was buried in a head down first type thing where her head was placed in first. Her back and legs were above her head," described Bean.

    Investigators believe the body had been there for years. Possibly as early as the late 1950s to the late 1970s. The victim was estimated to be between 15 and 21 years old. She was about 5'1" to 5'4". Her teeth revealed some key details.

    "There was gold foil restoration on the teeth as well as her two front teeth were somewhat crossed a little bit," said Bean.

    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released a new composite of the victim. Police hope someone will recognize her.

    I am glad she continues to get exposure. Hopefully they will know more about her here shortly when the tests are complete and they can put a better estimate on where she was from and when she passed.
