Case

The remains were located in a garbage dumping area near an abandoned shaft mine.

Recent testing indicates the girl was born and lived in Florida or central Texas for the first few years of her life, but later moved elsewhere in the country. Such places have been estimated to be the Midwest, Rocky Mountains, Southwest or Pacific Coast states. She was not likely in Tennessee for long.

It has been theorized she was a victim of the Redhead murders, although her cause of death couldn't be determined.
