    Simpson County, KY

    On October 9, 2001, a survey crew recovered the remains of a white female near the northbound lanes of Interstate 65 in Simpson County, Kentucky. The victim appeared to have been thrown over a guardrail and down a sharp embankment into a grove of trees. This area is twelve miles north of the Tennessee state line and 50 miles north of Nashville.

    The victim had decayed teeth, possible chronic back problems, and healed fractures to a rib and her upper right arm. An outline tattoo of a rose with a stem was noted on her left breast. Two rings were found at the scene; one ring is described as a gold wedding band and the other is silver with blue painted enamel background with flowers and leaves.
