Lake County Jane Doe was a young woman whose remains were found in Ohio in 1983. Serial killer Samuel Little has confessed to her murder. Unlike many others, he did not provide a sketch of her.

Case

The victim was discovered by an elderly man walking his dog at a grassy slope near a fence off the I-271 South near the 39-mile post.

In 2018, Samuel Little confessed to her murder. He told authorities the victim was a prostitute from Cleveland who was looking for money to buy heroin. He also said he was only with her for thirty minutes before strangling her right after a Cleveland patrol car passed them near East 39th & Broadway in an area of old factories. He then got on the highway and dumped her body where it was found. Between 1970-2005, Little killed up to 90 women who were involved in drugs or prostitution. He has been convicted of eight murders in three states and linked to sixty-one additional murders, including this victim. The investigation into Little's crimes are ongoing despite his death on December 30, 2020.
