Lady of the Lake was an unidentified murder victim found along the shore of Euclid Beach in Bratenahl, Ohio on September 5, 1934. Only the lower portion of her torso and the upper legs were recovered.


Although never officially confirmed, she was more than likely the first victim of the Cleveland Torso Murderer, referred to by some investigators as "Victim 1" or "Victim 0"

Jane Doe V, the seventh canonical victim of the Cleveland Torso Murderer, was discovered in virtually the same spot as the Lady of the Lake two years later in 1937.
