Unidentified homicide victim.

On October 24, 2003, deer hunters found the body of a woman lying face down in a wooded area off Devil Dog Road about 1 mile south of Interstate 40 and 6 miles west of Williams, Arizona. This area is a popular entrance into the Grand Canyon National Park. The victim died from a single blow to her head and likely was killed someplace other than where her body was discovered. All attempts to identify this female have been unsuccessful.


The victim is described as a white female, 60 years of age or older, 5'4" tall, 150 pounds, with blondish-gray hair in a bob style. The victim had brown eyes and no ear piercings or tattoos. Moles are present on the left side of the forehead, on the tip of the right shoulder, over the left clavicle, on the front of the right lower leg, and on the right ankle. Old scars are noted on the back of the left hand, below the right knee, and on the back of the right forearm. There was evidence of heart disease and also a skin condition (senile ecchymosis), likely requiring dermatological intervention.

An examination of the dental records revealed extensive dental work worth $20,000. These restorations included porcelain fused to metal crowns, four root canals, a full-gold crown, and two three-unit fixed partial dentures (bridges).
