Michigan Police Still Seek ID On Woman Killed 20 Years Ago

CHICAGO (CBS) -- Michigan State Police are still trying to identify a woman who was murdered and left on the side of a road 20 years ago this month.

It's a case that has been handed from detective to detective for two decades and officers won't stop trying to solve it, WBBM Newsradio's Mike Krauser reports.

The victim was found in New Buffalo Township. She was found wrapped in a sheet, towel and garbage bags and bound with twine.

It's believed she was between 65 and 75 years old and may have lived in a care facility in northern Illinois or Indiana.

Her body was found on Aug. 23, 1992 by a pedestrian walking along Krueger Road east of Red Arrow highway.

A medical examiner determined the victim was deceased for four to seven days before being dumped along the road, approximately 24 hours prior to discovery, police said.

The victim was white and had brown eyes. She was approximately 5'2" tall, weighed 103 pounds and wore dentures. Her hands and dentures were missing when she was found, police said.

Right now, she is buried in an unmarked grave as a Jane Doe.
