RAYMOND — The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has released a new and far more detailed artist’s rendering of an unidentified woman whose body was found in a Raymond cornfield more than 13 years ago.

The new picture and accompanying description include details that were not perviously available since the woman’s abused body was discovered — she had brown eyes, and reddish brown, collar-length curly hair with highlights, according to an updated description released by the center.

Otherwise, the same details remain: the woman, known as “Jane Doe,” was a white female between 18 and 30, who weighed about 120 pounds and was around 5 feet, 8 inches tall.

Her teeth were in poor condition, suggesting she had received little to no dental care, according to the center. Both of her ears were pierced twice, and she was reportedly found wearing a grey/silver country Western shirt embroidered with red flowers.

Beyond that, the only information known about the woman is from sheriff’s office reports released after a man out walking his dog on July 21, 1999 found her body, which was dumped in a cornfield off 92nd Street between 6 and 7 Mile roads.

According to those reports, Jane Doe was repeatedly tortured for up to four weeks before her death. She suffered burns and blunt force trauma to much of her body, a nose fracture, cuts to the head, abrasions to the forehead, a heavily battered left ear — often called a cauliflower ear — and showed signs of being both sexually abused and malnourished.

Investigators have been following leads and circulating the Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s artist rendering for more than a decade to no avail.
