Berks County Jane Doe refers to a woman whose skeletal remains were found on a farm in Windsor Township, Pennsylvania. The rural area is in between Lenhartsville and Virginville, thus it is described as in either of these cities.

Circumstances

A farmer was plowing his field when he struck bones. The Jane Doe was buried in a shallow grave in one of the gullies. Some of the skeleton was not found. No cause of death could be determined, but the burial and location suggest foul play, as authorities acknowledge.

Characteristics

  • Light brown (or possibly dark blonde) hair.
  • A short hairstyle (3 inches in length).
  • She is thought to have been slender, based her belt and watch sizes.
  • Doe Network states she had "severe periodontal disease." (Other sources do not mention this.)

Clothing

  • A long-sleeved sweater-dress made of a thin, blue or black fabric with large, white buttons. It had a label reading, "Benetton," and was extra large.
  • A light-colored, long-sleeved pullover shirt. It was made of a lightweight fabric, had pleats up the front, and a small collar. It also had five buttons down the front (presumably more decorative than functional).
  • A white belt made of vinyl.
  • Doe Network also lists pantyhose.

Accessories

  • A digital wristwatch described as "sport type." It had a small face and a plastic band in orange, pink, and yellow.
  • A gray metal ring.
  • What is believed to be a small, plastic dolphin. It may have been a brooch.
  • A small cylindrical, metallic object (possibly from an umbrella).
