    Cause of death Not stated​
    Palm Beach County Jane Doe was a teenager or young adult whose partial skeleton was discovered in 1974. ​

    1. Case
    Case Edit

    The remains of this Jane Doe were found by a man and his two teenage sons on June 16th, 1974 on Singer Island. The trio were hunting for driftwood.

    The remains had been scattered around the discovery area, and that animal activity had been prevalent when the remains were examined. Due to the activity, investigators were unable to find out how the woman died; however there is evidence to speculate homicide, as holes shaped like bullet holes were discovered on the sweater the Jane Doe had been wearing.

    With little to go on, investigators recorded her dental charts and estimated her height and weight. The Jane Doe was estimated to be between 14-25 years old, 5'2", and weighed around 100 lbs. She also had dental work based on fillings in some of her teeth.

    She was believed to be Bonnie Robinson of Detroit, Michigan; where investigators took a trip to see if they were hers or any other women in the area, but no matches were made.

    The Jane Doe was found with the following clothes near her remains:
    • A black pullover shirt with grey sleeves and grey midsection stripe.​
    • Yellow Panties, Size 5​
    • Denim material, believed to have originated from a pair of denim high-cropped shorts (AKA Daisy Dukes or Short Shorts). ​
    Developments 1974-PresentEdit
    In a Palm Beach Post article from July 1974, investigators believed that they may have had a suspect in the case as they were considering missing girls in Michigan; however the suspect, 17-year-old Terry Wayne Walker, was ruled out. Walker confessed to murdering Bonnie Robinson. The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office has been quiet on developments concerning this case for unknown reasons.

    In 2019, a new facial reconstruction of the girl was made by the Forensics Team at the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office in an attempt to identify the girl.

    No DNA is available for her case.
