Addison County Jane Doe was a woman found shot to death alongside two children, Addison County John Doe, and Addison County Doe.

Case

Her skeletal remains were found off of an old logging road in East Middlebury, Vermont, along with a male skeleton around the age of 9-11, and another of undetermined sex around the age of 13-15. DNA testing indicated she was related to at least one of the children.

The location has recently been identified as off of Burnham Drive, a road that did not exist at the time. Her cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head, and she possibly died around 1932-34.

Clothing and accessories

  • Pearl buttons (similar to those used on pajamas at the time).
  • Feathers (possibly from a pillow).
  • Canvas awning with wheel pulleys still attached.
