Washoe County Jane Doe was a woman found shot to death near Lake Tahoe in Nevada in 1982.
She was originally called "The Sheep Flats Jane Doe" because she was discovered in the Sheep Flats area outside of Mt. Rose on a hiking trail.
When discovered, there were two sets of foot prints leading to the scene from the parking area. One set returned to where a vehicle was parked and continued onto the freeway.
No one had seen her in the Tahoe area in the day before her body was found. An autopsy has shown that her last meal was a salad. She is currently buried at Our Lady of Sorrows on North Virginia street in Reno, NV.
She was originally believed to be from Europe due to inoculation scars on her arm and her dental work. An independent dental examination in 2010 has discredited this original assumption.
Other testing indicated she had spent time in the Western states.
