Irondequoit Jane Doe
On July 31, 1988, the complete skeletal remains of a young woman were located behind 130 Bay Knoll Drive in Irondequoit, New York by a young boy playing in the yard. While the cause of death is undetermined, investigators have ruled the death a homicide. She was believed to have died ten to thirty years before her discovery, which would put her year of death between 1958 to 1978. She is estimated to be between fifteen to twenty years old, but she could be younger. Investigators put her birth somewhere between 1938 to 1948. In life, she stood between 5’1” to 5’4” and may have had blonde hair. She had extensive dental restoration using gold foil. Time is running out for investigators to find the identity of this young woman.
The Upstate Missing Persons Blog recently reached out to its followers with the following information:
The missing girl may have been a high-school aged female from the area where her body was found. She may have had blonde hair and worn glasses. There is a possibility she attended a school in the Northeast part of Monroe or Western Wayne county, including the schools of Irondequoit or Bishop Kearney. Because she has not been identified, she may have moved or switched school shortly before her disappearance, so she was not established in her new school. She could also have been a high school dropout. She may have been a runaway who was not reported missing.
This is where we can all help: Do you remember a young woman who went missing? If you were in high school between 1958 to the late 1970s and remember a girl who stopped coming to school and fits the description of this woman, it is time to start asking questions.
The photo is an artists suggestions of what the girl may have looked like while alive. Please remember, even those these artists are amazing at what they do, they only have remains to work with. In this case, those remains were only skeletal.
If you have any information about this girl, please call the Irondequoit Police Department at 585-336-6000.
