Wanda was a female found in a shallow grave in 1995. It is possible that she was seen alive prior to her death, using this name.
The body was found in a "very" shallow grave by six children. The site was behind a vacant house, which had been used for the manufacturing of crack cocaine. She died days before but was not facially recognizable because of decomposition. She was buried in a supine position.
The female was initially estimated to be 20-25, according to a 1995 news report. The cause of death remains undetermined, but an overdose or natural death is suspected.
