Nelson County Jane Doe was a victim of Hurricane Camille who was discovered in 1969. Another girl with similar features was found on the same day and the two are presumed to be related.

Case

The victim was found in Rockfish River two miles above Howardsville, Virginia after Hurricane Camille hit. Hurricane Camille was a Category 5 hurricane that hit the Gulf and Eastern US Coast and killed 259 people, including six more unidentified people in Nelson Countyan unidentified man in Albermarle County, Virginia, and three unidentified women in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. 

As the community of Nelson County, Virginia was described as "close-knit", authorities speculated the unidentified victims could be migrant workers between jobs. Four of the eight (unspecified which ones) had beans in their stomach, which made Dr. Robert Raynor conclude, "Four of the eight ate supper together." 

Characteristics
