On February 5, 1990, the skeletal remains of a white female were found in what was a wooded area between the Pathmark Supermarket and The Club at Locust Grove housing development on Clement's Bridge Road in Deptford Township. A forensic anthropologist determined the victim to be between the ages of 16 to 20 years, 5 feet and 5 inches to 5 feet and 8 inches tall, weighing 120 to 145 pounds, with brown hair.
It is believed the victim was strangled with a ligature. A faux pearl necklace, a gold horseshoe shaped earring, sweatpants, socks, and pantyhose were found with the remains. It has been and may continue to be extremely difficult for investigators to solve this homicide without first identifying the victim.
