Warwick Jane Doe was a woman whose dismembered remains were found in Greenwood Lake in 1976.

Case

On April 16, 1976, a fisherman discovered the headless and handless body of a woman on the shore of Greenwood Lake in Warwick, New York.

The body was determined to be that of a female, and while her age was originally estimated to be 18 to 28, she is now thought to be between 40 and 60. Although there was a large puncture wound near her heart, her cause of death was decapitation. An electrical cord had been tied around her left ankle, and her body had been weighted using a stone.

Her case was connected to two other dismembered bodies found in the nearby area, one of which is still unidentified. The cord around her ankle was noted as being similar to the cord used to bind the unidentified man's body, but it is not known if they were determined to match.
