Could Jane Doe found in Ohio have been from Tennessee?

Posted: Updated:

Detectives in Miami County, Ohio are asking for the public's help in identifying a female body found in 1981.
New evidence suggests that she may be from Tennessee.
Officials say she was found April 24th, in a ditch in Troy, Ohio.
New technology prompted officials to send her clothing to be retested and they discovered pollen on her clothes commonly found along the Appalachian mountains.

She had been dead less than 2 days before she was found. She is estimated to be in her late teens to early twenties, approximately 5'6''ft in height and 125 lbs in weight.  

She had long reddish-brown hair that was styled in two side braids and a part down the middle.  The female appears Caucasian. She had a ruddy complexion with freckles on her face. The female had several scars; one beneath her chin, one on her left arm, two on her left wrist, right hand, right ankle, and right foot. The female had also been treated by a dentist in life as her top right central incisor had a porcelain-metal crown. The female was found clothed wearing bell bottom blue jeans, a brown turtleneck sweater with an orange crisscross design on the front, and a handmade tan buckskin pull-over jacket with leather fringe around the seams with a deep purple lining.

If you know who she might be contact Detective Steve Hickey with the Miami County Sheriff's Office, 937-440-3965 ext. 6629 or the Miami County Communication Center at 937-440-9911.
