Anaheim Jane Doe was a teenager who was believed to have been stabbed to death about six weeks to two months before her nude, nearly skeletonized remains were found. It is believed that she may have been a runaway. She was found fifty feet off the side of Santa Ana Canyon Road, right off of the heavily-traveled 91 freeway in the affluent Orange County, California suburb of Anaheim Hills, California in 1987. Her remains were in a 50x50 foot grassy area.

She is currently undergoing testing by the DNA Doe Project.
