    Who is the Rockwood Jane Doe? Remains of woman still unidentified as 10th anniversary approaches

    GUELPH — It's been 10 years since she was found under a sleeping bag in the woods, just off a rest stop west of Rockwood, outside of Guelph.

    Police don't know who she was or how she died.

    She's still "Jane Doe," without a family or a face.

    In 2008, the Rockwood Knights of Columbus placed a small stone at the picnic area near where her body was found so she wouldn't be forgotten.

    The Knights are planning a small ceremony on Sunday, Aug. 23 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the site to commemorate the 10th anniversary of when police found her body on Aug. 28, 2005.

    Fred Hawkins was involved in placing the original memorial stone.

    "We kept getting weird feelings driving by, looking," he said of the Knights' decision to place the stone.

    "There's a spot left there (on the stone) that if she's ever identified, we'll put her name on it."

    "Please pray for the soul of an unidentified woman whose remains were found at this location," reads a small plaque nestled amid clutches of faded silk flowers at the site.

    An artist's rendition of what she might have looked like, so bleached from the sun it looks almost like the face of a ghost, sits on a piece of wood between two wreaths.

    Hawkins said the Knights don't know who keeps leaving flowers, or who placed a small light near the memorial.

    "Somebody's really praying for her," he said.

    "It's a mystery who's looking after it, so it's affected somebody in some way."

    What's known is that she was a white woman between the age of 25 and 45, five feet four inches to five feet six inches tall, with "medium brown" hair, according to an Ontario Provincial Police release from the time.

    She was missing two teeth and had a dental plate. The plate wasn't numbered, so police don't know where it was manufactured.

    Rockwood's Jane Doe is listed on a missing person's and unidentified remains website, a partnership between the OPP, the Office of the Chief Coroner and the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service.

    According to the website, her left cheek, eye-socket and nose were broken but well healed by the time she died. She may have had "facial deformities" as a result.

    She was found in a beige "Atmosphere" tank top and black "Illegal Jeanswear" corduroy shorts, a "725 Originals" pink bra and white "Rivage Intimate" underwear.

    At a news conference held on the fifth anniversary of the discovery of her body, OPP Det. Insp. Ian Maule told reporters the woman wasn't wearing any shoes, suggesting she didn't walk to where she was found.

    At that time he offered a $50,000 reward to anyone who could provide information leading to her identity.

    He said when her body was found it was already decomposing, so police could not perform toxicology tests. Police fingerprinted her and got a DNA sample but neither provided any clues as to who she was.

    Police do not believe she was sexually assaulted.

    The OPP do not know how exactly she died but they suspect foul play as she was dragged about 10 meters into the bush, covered with a sleeping bag and left there, Maule said during the news conference.

    Hawkins of the Knights of Columbus said she may be unidentified but "somebody knows something."

    "Somebody put her there. Whether that person's still alive and feels guilty over it or what, I wouldn't have a clue," he said.

    Kathy Gruspier, the forensic anthropologist for the Ontario Forensic Pathology Service, was the anthropologist on Jane Doe's file.

    Gruspier remembers well driving out to the site that hot August day in 2005.

    "The thing with this case is that yes, we definitely have all the information," Gruspier said.

    Jane Doe was found when the province had already started doing DNA testing, not the case for some of the older files in the unidentified remains database.

    The problem is no one has reported her missing.

    "What we need is for someone to say to us, 'look we have this missing female, can you check your database and see if any of your unidentified bodies match,'" Gruspier said.

    Rockwood's Jane Doe is one of 286 people in the database, which dates back to 1964.

    "We still would love to know who she is, we'd love to identify her," Gruspier said, adding tips can be submitted directly on the public website the database feeds, to the OPP, or through Crime Stoppers.

    "We follow every one up and if we can't exclude the possibility based on biology, age, race or something like that, then we'll go for DNA or dental records," she said.

    "We never ignore a tip. No matter how bizarre it may seem."
