Santa Ana Jane Doe is an unidentified female found in 1988 in Santa Ana, California. The victim's case was reopened in 2015.


The woman was found decomposing in Santiago Park and she also had been decapitated by a serrated blade. She was wearing a yellow top, white pants, a bra, white shoes and earrings. Her head was found four days after the body in the same vicinity, leading officials to believe the killer placed the head after they learned of the woman's discovery.
