Miss X was a young woman found dead in Bear, Delaware on March 18, 1967.


The unidentified woman's body was found near Porter Road, which was located in a rural area outside of Bear, Delaware. Her legs were covered with a laundry bag that belonged to a laundry and dry cleaning company in Trenton, New Jersey. The original owner of the laundromat had since died, but relatives of the owner remembered seeing a woman similar to the unidentified woman and she was either a customer or nearby resident.

Distant maternal relatives of the unidentified woman were found in Virginia and North Carolina, however none of the relatives that were contacted knew who she was. The unidentified woman has been buried in Potter's Field in Delaware.

In the original investigation, authorities believed the unidentified woman died as the result of an illegal abortion, due to soap-like substances found in her vaginal cavity, but it was later discovered that she'd died of untreated septicemia.
