Okahandja Jane Doe is a woman who was found in Okahandja, Namibia in August 2007. She is believed to be the victim of a serial killer known as the "B1 Butcher". 

Case

The victim’s head and arm were discovered north on the B1 Highway between Okahandja and Windhoek. Further body parts were discovered in September 15, 17, & 22, 2007 near Groofontein. She was initially believed to be a woman named Jacoba “Wilma” Oliver, as the head of the victim was identified as her by her mother, who hadn't seen her daughter since 2003. However, Oliver notified police on October 16, 2007 that she was well and alive.

Between 2005 to 2007, five women, all Coloured Namibians, were killed and their dismembered across the B1 Highway in Namibia. The remains of the victims showed signs of freezing or refrigeration. Only three women were identified by authorities. At least one victim, Melanie Janse, was strangled and another, Juanita Mabula, was hit in the head with a blunt object. Two of the three identified women, worked in Windhoek's downtown Ausspannplatz area as prostitutes and Mabula and another victim, Sanna Helena ǁGaroës, knew each other well. To date, no one has been charged and convicted of being the "B1 Butcher".
