😥😥😥😥31-Oct-2018 - 38 years ago today this teenaged girl hitched a ride to Huntsville Texas, and suffered a horrible fate that no human being should have to endure.
Someone knew her. She must have had friends and family, but 38 years have passed, and nobody has stepped forward to say "She was my daughter", "She was my sister", or "She was my friend". Not even anyone who can say "I know who she was".
PLEASE SHARE THIS MESSAGE. All it takes is for the right person to see this post.
PLEASE NOTE - The attached images are forensic depictions, created by an artist, based on coroner's photos, of what the victim may have looked like alive. They are not photographs of the victim, and while I believe they strongly resemble the victim, they are not likely to be exact likenesses of the real person.
WHO WAS WALKER COUNTY JANE DOE?
1980 - Huntsville, Texas
On November 1, 1980, a truck driver found the naked body of a girl about 16 years old, lying face down on an embankment aside northbound I-45 in Walker County Texas, about 3 1/2 miles north of the Hitchin' Post truckstop, and a half mile south of the FM 1696 exit near Huntsville. A pair of high-heeled sandals with red straps was lying nearby.
She had been brutally beaten and sexually assaulted before dying by slow strangulation. Her face and body were covered with bruises from the beating and there was a human bite mark on her back near her right shoulder. The autopsy revealed she had been violated both rectally and vaginally by a blunt instrument with enough force to cause internal injuries, and that she had been strangled with a pair of panty hose.
When the murder was reported in the local media, several people came forward and said they'd seen a teenager matching her description the day before her body was found. One witness, the manager of the now-defunct South-End Gulf Station at the corner of Sam Houston Ave and Old Phelps Road, recognized the victim as a girl who had been at the station around 6:30 p.m. Halloween night. She had been dropped off at the station by a white male driving a blue 1973 or 1974 Chevrolet (possibly a Caprice) with a white vinyl top. She was wearing blue jeans, a yellow tee shirt, a white button-up sweater with big pockets that hung below her waist, and was carrying high-heeled sandals with red straps in her hand. She looked disheveled like she had been traveling and perhaps sleeping in her clothes. She asked the gas-station manager for directions to the Ellis prison unit near Huntsville, and then left the station, walking north on Sam Houston avenue.
Later that evening, a waitress working at the Hitchin' Post truck stop said the girl came into the restaurant. Again, the girl asked for directions to the Ellis Unit, saying she had a friend there. The waitress asked the girl how old she was, and the girl responded 19. The waitress, thinking that was an obvious lie, then asked the girl if her parents knew where she was. The young girl dismissively replied, "Who cares?". The waitress asked the girl where she was from. She replied Aransas Pass/Rockport, (i.e., a small community near Corpus Christi).
Authorities interviewed every inmate and employee at the Ellis Prison Unit, and none of them admitted to having known the girl.
Extensive inquiries in the Aransas Pass/Rockport area have been unsuccessful, and she does not appear in any of the high school yearbooks from the Aransas Pass/Rockport area for that era.
Authorities don't believe that she had been living on the streets for very long, as she appeared to be well-nourished and her teeth were well-cared for.
She was between 14 and 18 years old, stood 5 feet 6 inches tall, and weighed 105 lbs. She had wavy light brown shoulder-length hair and brown or hazel eyes.
She had a vertical scar about 1½ inches long above and to the side of her right eye that transected her right eyebrow.
She was wearing a necklace with a rectangular or square pendant with a smoky stone. (There has been conflicting information as to the shape of the pendant (square or rectangular), the color of the pendant (gold or silver), and the color of the stone (blue, reddish, or some other color),
She is buried in the Addickes addition of the Oakwood Cemetery in Huntsville under a marker that reads simply:
UNKNOWN WHITE FEMALE
