"Mary Jane Doe" was a pregnant woman discovered in Indiana in 1992. It is believed she was a transient who died from exposure.
The decedent, nicknamed "Mary Jane Doe," was discovered in a flooded basement by a contractor. The body was wrapped in a furniture blanket. She had died in late 1991 or early 1992.
Foul play is not suspected in her death, as a 1992 examination failed to discern signs of foul play. She may have died from exposure while living as a transient. Authorities possibly tested the remains for presence of drugs, but this information has not been released.
In 2017, her remains were exhumed to obtain dental radiography and DNA information. A facial reconstruction was also created.
- She was around 26 weeks pregnant
- Below-average muscle mass
- Healing fractures on both sides of her nose
- She possibly suffered from back pain that may have affected her posture.
