    Body Found In Snake River Still Unidentified

    A full week has come and gone since the body of a woman was discovered in the Snake River and she remains unidentified.

    The woman's body was pulled from the water between the Perrine Bridge and the Centennial Park boat ramp, according to the Twin Falls Times-News, on the afternoon of Sept. 9. Officials said at the time that her body had not been in the water long.

    But according to the Times-News, "investigators are beginning to run out of options."

    "There's nothing," Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office investigator Dave Benefiel told the Times-News, referring to a lack of scars or tattoos on the woman's body. "And that's the whole problem."

    Twin Falls law enforcement say they've compared notes with seven agencies from Idaho and surrounding states, but nothing matches missing persons reports.

    "I just wish there was something," Benefiel told the Times-News. "This is fairly odd."

    The woman was dressed in black clothing but no identification was found. Officials theorized that she jumped from the Perrine Bridge.

    Investigators are running the woman's fingerprints through a nationwide database.

    She's described as 45-50 years old; five foot, seven inches tall; 177 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.

    Police Release Photo in Unidentified Body Case

    TWIN FALLS • Divers spent hours Thursday sifting through the murky Snake River for any clues that might help identify the body of a woman found floating floating west of the I.B. Perrine Bridge.

    Just after 12 p.m. the divers went in, making meticulous passes over the spot where investigators believe the woman went in the water, on the north side of the bridge.

    Then at 12:53 p.m., one of the divers called toward the boat. “Evidence container, I need an evidence container.”

    Sheriff’s deputies and members of the media all whipped their heads around toward the divers. Sgt. Jeff Haskell and Lt. Daron Brown retrieved the white plastic tube, about 12 inches long and 6 inches wide and handed it to the divers.

    “Are you sure it’s related to the case?” Brown asked.

    “No,” dive captain Kim Shelley yelled back.

    “Is it media-sensitive?”


    “Is it alive?”

    “No,” she yelled back, laughing. “It’s a piece of clothing.”

    Haskell opened the container and pulled the item out : A pair of dark blue parachute pants covered in mud. The unidentified woman had been found fully clothed. As he dug in the pockets, Haskell shook his head.

    “They’re from a BASE jumper,” he said, pulling out a rubber band used to pack parachutes.

    After changing tanks, the divers went back under the near-zero-visibility water and continued to search by touch around shopping cards, bowling balls and other debris thrown from the bridge.

    Brown was pulling for a wallet with identification. Even a piece of jewelry could bring the investigators closer to finding who the woman was.

    Later in the day the divers found a jacket, but it appeared to have been in the water for too long to have belonged to Jane Doe, said sheriff’s office spokeswoman Lori Stewart.

    Thursday, the sheriff’s office decided to release a photo of the woman. The photo of the woman’s face was put through a filter to make it look like a sketch, Stewart said.

    Body Found in Snake River Still Unidentified
    TWIN FALLS • The body of a woman found in the Snake River is still unidentified after more than a week, and investigators are beginning to run out of options.

    A lack of distinguishing features like a scar or tattoo makes the process difficult.

    “There’s nothing. And that’s the whole problem,” said Dave Benefiel, an investigator at the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office

    Investigators believe the woman likely jumped from the IB Perrine Bridge on Sept. 9. Kayakers found her body about 2:15 p.m. between the bridge and the Centennial Park boat ramp. It hadn’t been in the water long.

    Investigators are still waiting on lab test and autopsy results.

    “There’s always that 1 percent chance that foul play was involved,” Benefiel said.

    Deputies have gotten calls from seven agencies from Idaho and surrounding states who thought the Jane Doe might be a missing person they were searching for. But none matched.

    “I just wish there was something,” Benefiel said. “This is fairly odd. Usually we know in 24 to 48 hours and we’re talking a week here now and nothing. It’s frustrating.”

    Wednesday, Benefiel and other investigators searched by boat along the Snake River banks near the bridge and Centennial Park for any evidence, but came up empty handed.

    The woman was dressed in black clothing but no identification was found. Police searched for an abandoned vehicle on the Perrine Bridge parking area and other places, but found none.

    Benefiel said people sometimes travel to the Twin Falls area in order to jump from the bridge, but police typically find a vehicle or other personal property nearby.

    “We’ve had numerous people come here from out of the area,” he said. “There’s usually somebody missing them.”

    Now, investigators are running the woman’s fingerprints through a nationwide criminal database. There’s also the possibility of running them through the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s database, which also includes military records.

    Sometimes, gun permit or teacher fingerprints are placed in a database, but they’re often not searchable, said Twin Falls County Coroner Dennis Chambers.

    “They’re just held in a personnel file,” he said of teacher prints.

    A description of the body will also be put in a national unidentified victim database, Chambers said.

    This is the unidentified woman found in Twin Falls Sept 9, 2014.This is all current as of today. I am in a group called EastIdaho ColdCases and together we have collected information. We have a running post. And I have done a current update today with all the new info and pictures. Yes, this woman is deceased in these pictures. These ARE all there is to identify her, so if the picture's bother you, I am sorry , BUT this woman deserves to be identified so she can be laid to rest.

    UPDATED 9-26-14 After Cindy spoke to the coroner. , I have reread thru all comment's as well as the news stories and now.have added Cindys information. This is what I have. If I miss something please tell me and I will add.
    Coroner does say she looks very similiar to picture of her. He also is going to release pictures to major media outlets

    1- this woman was recovered from the Snake River in/near Twin Falls, Idaho on September 9, 2014. She is thought to have been in the water approx an hour or so prior to recovery. Cause of death is trauma from fall, cause of fall unclear at this time.
    2- she is as of this time unidentified and does not match any missing person's report's, and does not have fingerprints on file.
    3- she is approx 40 to 55 year's old
    4- Teeth in perfect shape, with 3 veneers in the front
    5- she does NOT have any tattoo's, BUT has a scar on left arm, brown mole on right cheek, and a non colored mole under her lip towards the left, and a non colored mole on forehead
    6- nails not done
    7- brows freshly plucked. Top and bottom lips are full, but top lip does not appear full in picture possibility related to biting at time of fall.
    8- 5 foot 6 inches tall
    9- weight 160
    10- is not a full figured woman, breasts of average size
    11- she is described as Caucasian. BUT may be of mixed ethnicity as her features do to some of us look like she may have some Hispanic in her. Has short dark brown hair, and blue green OR hazel eyes. (I too am Hispanic and Caucasian with dark brown hair and hazel eyes) They are running DNA to find out what her ethnicity is.
    12- her eye color is difficult to really see due to cloudiness that occurs with death.
    13- In the picture her skin tone appears slightly grayish and mild amount of yellowing which also occours with death

    15- per coroner does NOT appear to have ever given birth
    16- When recovered was wearing black clothing and men's tennis shoes size 11 and 1/2 which according to a more recent media report were too big for her feet (her feet were smaller). One shoe was on the woman, the other one near by her in the water. Also found money (2 five dollar bills and a twenty dollar bill ) folded together near where she was found. Is believed to have belonged to the woman. She was also wearing black cargo pants two sizes to large and had them cinched up with a webbed belt. Also was carrying a hat in the pocket. Clothes all appear to be from Walmart
    17- per coroner she appears to be a tomboy
    18-- through earlier conversations we have realized she resembles others AND looks familiar to many in different areas of Southeast Idaho (Twin, Poky, IF)
    19- no personal belongings found near or around area (purse, phone, car, etc.)
    20- We need to work together to help this lady.

    Identity still unknown for woman found dead in Snake River 5 years ago this week

    TWIN FALLS — A five-year-old cold case remains unsolved, with no new leads. A woman who died after falling from the Perrine Bridge on Sept. 9, 2014, has never been identified, according to authorities.

    “It’s basically a waiting game,” Twin Falls County Coroner Gene Turley said Tuesday.

    At the time of the incident, investigators estimated the woman’s age to be in her late 40s. She was 5 feet, 5 inches tall, had short brown hair, hazel or blue-green eyes, scars on her left arm, and weighed about 140 pounds.

    Kayakers found her body that afternoon between the bridge and the boat ramp at Centennial Park. She was wearing a black shirt, black cargo pants two sizes too large with a webbed belt. Men’s size 11.5 tennis shoes were on her feet, also too large.

    The woman’s fingerprints were placed in national databases. Her DNA and dental impressions were taken, as well.

    No missing person reports matched her description. As DNA databases continue to grow, there may eventually be a match which will help with identification, Tara Ortmann of the Coroner’s office said. The woman was buried at Sunset Memorial Park weeks after her death with more than two dozen members of the community in attendance.

    “The case is still open,” said Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Lori Stewart. “There’s no new information at this time.”
