"Lime Lady" was a young woman found murdered in 1980 in Oklahoma. She was given such a nickname for quicklime that was poured over her body in an attempt to quicken decomposition, which had actually mummified her and preserved evidence.
She is currently undergoing testing by the DNA Doe Project.
The woman's unclothed body was recovered on the shore of the North Canadian River. She had been shot three times with a .45 caliber revolver. Following her death, the responsible party poured quicklime on the remains in an attempt to quicken decomposition, which ended up preserving the remains.
When she was shot, one of the bullets hit a dime, indicating she was clothed when murdered. The shooter was facing the victim and moving toward her when they fired.
In 2014, police obtained a DNA profile from the victim.
