"Dana" or "Diana" was a young woman whose remains were found in 2007 in Ohio. She is currently undergoing DNA testing by the DNA Doe Project.

Case

On March 10 2007, the skeletal remains of a female was found in an area surrounded by fields. The body had been there for 1 to 5 years.

In 2016, it was announced that suspected serial killer Shawn Grate claimed to have killed the victim, who was apparently selling magazines door-to-door. He claimed to have abducted and stabbed her to death and dumping her body along the road it was discovered.[2]

Her suspected killer claimed her name started with a "D," possibly as Dana, Diana or Diane.

Isotope testing results showed that the victim may have been born in Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida or Georgia, and lived in Florida or Texas for a long period of time.

Theories

  • Mazariegos had braces at the time of her disappearance.
