The skull of a 2006 "Jane Doe" in Gregg County has been reconstructed in hopes the body can be identified.

On October 6, 2006, the burning body of "Jane Doe" was discovered on an oil field right-of way off Fritz Swanson Road in Kilgore. The body was that of a white female, believed to be between 17 and 22 years of age, standing 5’3” to 5’5” and weighing 100 to 120 pounds. Reports state the female had reddish-brown hair and blonde highlights. She was wearing size 7/8 jeans and a purple pull-over sweater.

The body was burned beyond recognition. DNA and dental records were obtained at autopsy and those records have been compared with hundreds of missing persons throughout the United States and North America without success. A reconstruction of the skull was conducted and the reconstruction image was displayed in the local media and internationally on the internet. Again, no viable information was obtained as to her identity.

On October 2, 2013, an exhumation was conducted at "Jane Doe’s" grave and her skull was used for another reconstruction with new 3-D technology. The reconstruction was completed in January, 2014, and recently was made available to the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office.
