Jane Doe VIII was one of many victims of the Cleveland Torso Murderer.


The woman's leg was discovered first, on April 8, 1938. Her torso, which had been divided in half was discovered a month later, along with her thighs and one foot, concealed in burlap sacks. The rest of the remains were never found.


  • The victim had light brown hair.
  • She had likely had a caesarean section.
  • Damage to her cervix indicated she may have given birth a separate time or had an abortion.
