Windy Point Jane Doe: New technology may help close case

MONTROSE COUNTY, Colo. - The remains of a woman discovered on the Uncompahgre Plateau are still unknown nearly 20 years after being found. But now officials say modern technology may help to finally close the case.

Almost two decades; that's how long investigators have been searching for this woman's identity.

She's come to be known as "Windy Point Jane Doe"

The FBI has analyzed her skeletal remains and created a model of what they think she looked like when she was alive.

Her body was discovered in 1994 on the Uncompahgre Plateau near a popular hunting and camping spot called Windy Point.

With no real leads on her death, resolving the case now relies on this new technology and your help.

"I'm very hopeful; I think somebody out there knows who she is. This is somebody's daughter, sister…possibly mother. It's our hope to get her identified and maybe get some kind of closure to this case," said investigator David Harrison with the Montrose County Sheriff's Office.

The victim is described as between 5'4" and 5' 7" with reddish-brown hair.

Investigators say there's no known cause of death, but also say no clothes were found near her remains which is an indicator that her body was left there.

If you have any information about this case or who this woman is, you're urged to contact Montrose officials at (970) 252-4023.
