    Ash Fork (where she was reportedly seen at the truck stop on Feb 4th) is 19 miles West of Williams. She was found 11 miles West of Williams or 7 Miles East of Ashfork.... She didn't make it far, in 10 days. Wonder how many days she was estimated deceased?

    When you look at the region, there's soo many places she could be from. Guess any where, if she was travelling via semi's.

    Almost makes me think she was staying right in that area. 10 days is a long time to be loitering.

    DEPUTIES SEEK ID CLUES ON WOMAN

    Coconino County Sheriff's Department Detectives still are puzzled as to the identification and cause of death of a young woman whose body was discovered near Williams Sunday.

    The body of the woman, who was believed to be 17-19 years old, was discovered at about 11:45, Sunday, by a highway patrolman who had stopped to help a stranded motorist about nine miles west of Williams.

    The body was discovered about 25 feet off the interstate 40 under a cedar tree. Sgt. Jack Judd of the sheriff's department said the girl had been dead for about two to three weeks.

    "We're trying to obtain an ID through dental records right now," Judd said. "It's amazing how many 5-foot-5, 125-pound blonde females there are missing across the U.S. right now. It's unreal."

    Judd said dental records may provide a positive clue to making that determination, however, as the girl discovered Sunday had a root canal started about a week before her death.

    "It had been drilled out and allowed to drain, but it hadn't been filled yet," Judd said.

    ARTIST SKETCHES VICTIM

    Coconino County Sheriff's Department detectives are seeking information concerning a black and white male truck driving team that might have information about the death of a young woman discovered near Williams Sunday.

    The body of a woman, who was believed to be 17-19 years old, was discovered at about 11:45 a.m. by a highway patrolman who had stopped to help a stranded motorist about nine miles west of Williams. The body was discovered about 25 feet off Interstate 40, beneath a cedar tree.

    Based on an artist's drawing of the girl, a waitress at the Monte Carlo Truck Stop near Ash Fork said the girl was in the truck stop at 3 a.m. February 5, and was complaining of a toothache.

    The body of the girl discovered Sunday had had a root canal started about a week before her death, said Sgt. Jack Judd.

    "It had been drilled out and allowed to drain, but it hadn't been filled yet." Judd said.

    "Based on the information we've been able to obtain, we believe the time of death to be between 4 and 6 that morning," said Lt. Tom Brawley, "She was probably in the company of two males, one was a white male about 60-65 years old and the other was a black male.

    "Our opinion at this time is that she had been riding with two guys, probably a truck driver and his partner."

    Valentine Sally February 14, 1982



    February 14, 1982
    Seven to nine miles outside the city of Williams, on Interstate 40, an Arizona highway patrolman, searching the right-of-way for a tire lost off a passenger vehicle, spotted her as she lay against the fence.

    She had been dead for three to four days before his discovery. And an autopsy failed to find a conclusive cause of death.

    Cops nicknamed her "Valentine Sally", because she was found on Valentines Day. She is believed to have been between the ages of 19 and 25, being 5'4" to 5'8" tall, weighing 120 to 130 pounds, had blonde shoulder length hair and pierced ears. About a week before her death, she had undergone a root canal, but had not returned to her dentist to have it filled.

    At 3 a.m. on February 5th, at the Monte Carlo Truck Stop, she may have been in the company of a white male, 60 to 65 years of age, 5'8" to 5'10" tall, medium weight, wearing a two-tone brown checked leather vest—the kind made in Mexico and a felt cowboy hat adorned with peacock feathers.

    Coconino Sheriff's detectives were seeking two men, a white and black truck-driving team, which might be able to give some further information.

    The victim may have been seen wearing a white pullover sweater with maroon stripes, designer jean, "Seasons" brand, size 8, and was barefoot.

    In 1987, she was exhumed and examined by anthropologists in the hopes they could discover further information to identify her.

    She can be found resting in the Williams Cemetery listed as " Melody E. "Sally Valentine" Cutlip. She remains unidentified.
