On Friday, February 15, 1991, the remains of a Caucasian female approximately 16-25 years old were found in the woods near “Horseshoe” recreation area, located south of the Bahia Honda Channel Bridge, on West Summerland Key, Florida. The victim was seen hitchhiking on US 1, at mile marker 17, on Big Coppitt Key the day before. The victim was sexually assaulted and murdered.
It is suspected the victim was not from this area due to her clothing and lack of tan lines. An autopsy report surmised the victim may have carried a baby to full term. Additionally, she suffered from ovarian and fallopian tube cysts, adhesions to uterus, and chronic pelvic inflammation. Due to expected abdominal pain she may have sought medical attention. For additional information and photographs regarding this victim, refer to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons Systems (NamUs) database case report number UP6182.
