On October 16, 2012, the remains of an unidentified female teenager was located in Houston near Walters Road.

Investigators believe the girl died sometime during the month of September 2012. They said she was of mixed ancestry, possibly African American and caucasian, and may have been between 15 and 17 years of age.

This "Jane Doe" had long, dark, curly hair that was held back from her face with a standard bobby pin. She was found wearing a blue-green "Smurfette" T-shirt and size five cargo pants.

 

Forensic experts believe the girl may have been from south Texas.

 

"The type of food that she ate, the type of pollen she was exposed to are more common in the Austin and San Antonio area than they are in the Houston area, and it seems to be consistent that she may have grown up there," said Dr. Sharon Derrick with the Harris Country Institute of Forensic Sciences.

 

Those with any information regarding the identity of this victim are asked to call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children hotline at 1-800-843-5678, or the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences at (713) 796-6858.
