LEE COUNTY — The Central Alabama Crimestoppers offers a $5,000 reward for information that will lead to the identity of Baby Jane Doe.
According to the Central Alabama Crimestoppers, skeletal remains of a little girl were found on January 28, 2012, at a trailer park on Hurst Street in Opelika. It is estimated that the child died between 2010 and 2011 but focused on the Summer or Fall of 2011.
Reports state the child is estimated to be 4-7 years old and had medium-length black hair styled in corn rolls. The height, weight, and eye color could not be determined.
A long-sleeve pink shirt with heart buttons and small ruffles near the neckline was recovered near the skeletal remains, but it is unknown if it belonged to the child.
An anthropological assessment of her bones suggested she had likely been abused and malnourished in life. Chemical isotope testing on her bones suggested she was born and raised in Alabama or one of the surrounding southern states. The investigation revealed she possibly had ties to the Orlando, Florida, area.
