    an19 Young woman found dead in Hernando woods in 1972, FL.





    TAMPA, FL (WFLA) – When forensics professionals gathered at the University of South Florida this summer, they worked to identify nine ‘cold case’ victims – nine unsolved homicide cases that happened in the Tampa Bay area.

    They worked to restore the victims’ face and help identify them.

    This case took place in Hernando County in 1972. A teenager found a woman’s body in the wooded area on High Corner Road in Brooksville.

    The victim was between 25 and 40 years old. She was 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighed about 140 pounds. She had brown hair about 6 inches long.

    She had nothing but a bra and white bikini-style underwear on when she was found.

    The medical examiner’s office determined the cause of death as strangulation. Officials said she had been in the woods for about four days before she was found.


    She was buried by the county as Jane Doe.

    In June 2015, Hernando County Sheriff’s Office and the USF Forensic Anthropology Laboratory and District 5 Medical Examiner’s Office exhumed her body for DNA testing, anthropological assessment and the facial reconstruction.

    The specialists determined she had lived in the US for at least 5-10 years prior to her death and spent a significant amount of time in Florida.

    There was also a very important lead in the case.

    A couple of days prior to the body being found a light-colored 61-62 Ford Falcon was seen driving into the woods with three people in the car.

    When it drove back out, there were only two people in it.






    If you recognize the woman in the picture or know something about the case, please call Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Detective George Loydgren at (352)797-3714 or email Gloydgren@Hernandosheriff .org

    Woman’s body found in 1972 still not identified


    HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help solving a mystery involving a woman whose body was found more than 40 years ago.

    They’ve released composite images of the woman and details about the bedspread that her body was found in, with the hope that someone will recognize her.

    On July 19, 1972, the body of an unidentified woman was discovered in the area of High Corner Road and Cortez Boulevard (State Road 50) in Brooksville.

    The sheriff’s office says it is highly possible she had recently traveled from Alabama or north Florida.

    The unidentified woman is described as being white, 30 to 40 years of age, 5′ 0″ tall, 125-145 lbs., with short brown hair. She had six upper and six lower teeth.

    Her body was found wrapped in a bedspread that had a distinctive pattern, possibly a “pineapple damask” print. There were three square corners and one rounded corner on the bedspread.

    Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact Cold Case Det. Loydgren at phone (352) 754-6830 or email unsolved@hernandosheriff. org.

    The round angle on one side, that is what makes it different to most bedspreads. Maybe the bed was in a corner on one site or something? Really weird and not a bedspread you would buy in any store because of the unequal corners?

    ETA: I searched for bedspreads with one round side, other one straight, but couldn't find any you could buy, so I just guess this one was home made?
