    WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas — Williamson County officials have finally identified the woman who was found dead about 40 years ago wearing only orange socks.


    Sheriff Robert Chody made the announcement on Tuesday, stating more details would be released Wednesday morning. He did not reveal the woman's identity.
    This comes after officials in January said that they made headway in the case, stating forensic evidence testing on DNA found on the victim's socks revealed two or more male contributors. At that time, the sheriff also said DNA was being processed to separate the contributors and generate possible profiles.


    The woman was found dead on Oct. 31, 1979, off of Interstate Highway 35 north of Georgetown.
    Even though notorious serial killer Henry Lee Lucas was convicted of her murder in 1984, her name remained a mystery.

    I just went over the press conference again to get the details of what police need in this case.

    Debra Jackson left home in 1977, she was never reported missing.

    Police are requesting information from people who lived in Abilene, Amarillo and Azle, Texas between 1977 and 1979 who might have known or saw this young lady.

    Police know Debra was working in 1977 but they do not know where. In 1978 she was working in Amarillo at a Ramada Inn which is now Camelot Inn.
    Also in 1978 she was working at an assisted living company called Burmont in Azle

    Tip line 512 943 5204

    Apparently they have a male DNA sample from under her fingernails but so far has not led to anything.

    There was a whole lot more to this story and to everyone involved in finding her identity, Great Job!!! Would also like to send condolences to her family, I know firsthand how sad this is. I hope you find the closure you need some day.
