Fond du Lac Jane Doe was a teen or young woman found deceased in Ashford, Wisconsin in 2008. Her cause of death was not possible to determine, although investigators believe she was murdered, given the circumstances of where she was found. Pollen testing indicated she was originally from New Mexico or a nearby state. She had not spent a long period of time in the Midwest.


The frozen and badly decomposed remains of the Jane Doe were found in November 2008. She was clothed in a black top with a pink bow, jeans and wore a ponytail holder on her wrist. Shoes were not found at the scene. She is believed to have died in the summer or early fall of 2008, based on the availability of the clothing she wore.

New renderings were released in 2018, although the frontal versions had been previously released on a Wisconsin missing person site.

A chemical isotope analysis placed Fond du Lac County Jane Doe in the New Mexico-Arizona area for most of her life, but that she likely resided in region of South West Wisconsin, Southern Minnesota, and Northern Iowa for less than a year prior to her death.

Jane Doe was briefly theorized being connected to the West Mesa murders, but the law enforcement in Albuquerque have concluded that these two cases are not related nor connected.


  • The female's top was traced to a Family Dollar (or a similar store) that sold the outfit for two weeks during the summer. It is possible that the Jane Doe had purchased, been given, or even "stolen" the clothing during that period of time.
  • Blue "Angels" brand jeans that were rolled up slightly
  • A pink bra


  • She was either White, Native American, Asian, Hispanic or multiracial.
  • She had dark blond to light brown hair
  • She had an overbite
  • She had dental sealants on her teeth and a few fillings.
