    Case History

    A state highway administration worker cutting weeds found the victim at the bottom of an embankment.
    The victim was on the southbound side of I-270, down the Baker Hill Road embankment. It is not believed she was killed at this site.
    In 1995, authorities looked into a truck driver from North Carolina about this killing. He had been arrested for killing an Ohio woman, whose body was found in Kingsport, Tennessee, and was suspected of killing as many as seven women and dumping their bodies on the side of highways.
    A search of his house found women's shoes and undergarments. The victim was found without shoes or undergarments.

    On July 31, 1991 the badly decomposed body of a young female was discovered at the bottom of an embankment along southbound Interstate 270 at the Baker Valley Road overpass in Frederick County, Maryland. Medical Examiners believe the victim may have been at this location up to 1-2 weeks prior to discovery. The disposal site was within 10 miles of a truck stop. Due to decomposition, Medical Examiners weren’t able to confirm the cause of death.

    Although it’s been over two decades since the discovery, a candlelight vigil was held recently in the past couple years to remember the victim without an identity.

    “To this day — and we’re celebrating 20 years — we have no idea who she is,” Maryland State Police Sgt. Tina Becker said on the 20th anniversary on July 31, 2011.

    The Cold Case Unit officer said that the chance of determining what happened to the Jane Doe is zero to none; the girl, estimated to be in her late teens or early 20s at the time of her death, had no identification.

    It’s been over 22 years since the discovery and authorities are hoping someone has that small piece of the puzzle that they are missing.

    Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to please contact:
    Sgt Christina Becker Maryland State Police, (410) 386-3029 or cbecker@mdsp.org
    OR
    FBI ViCAP, (800) 634-4097 or vicap@leo.gov

    Frederick County Jane Doe

    The remains of a sixteen to twenty-five-year-old woman, also known as Maryland's Unknown Child, was found on 31 July 1991, in Frederick County, Maryland, near a truck stop. The remains were badly decomposed to the point where the cause of death was not able to be determined.[151] She was located underneath an overpass, which suggests being disposed of after a murder. The victim was between five feet and five feet two inches tall, weighing 110-120 pounds. The hair was described to be dark and wavy and a tooth protruded from her upper set of teeth. A tank top and several pieces of jewelry were found on her arms, hands, neck and ankle. A silver and gold colored wristwatch was also worn by the girl. Four reconstructions were created, varying strongly from each other.[152][153][154] It was reported that a man convicted of the murder of a woman native to Ohio in Tennessee, who was a trucker, may have been involved. At his house, authorities discovered shoes and underwear, two types of clothing that the Frederick County Jane Doe was not wearing
