Baldock Jane Doe, also known as "The Girl in the Afghan Coat", was a young woman who died after being hit by multiple vehicles near Baldock, Hertfordshire County, England on February 18, 1975.

Case

The decedent was killed at approximately 6:15 a.m. on a Tuesday. At the time of her death, she was wearing no shoes and was carrying no I.D. She had been last seen alive at 5:30 a.m. that day near the area where she was killed. Jane Doe had told the witness that she planned to hitchhike to London and spoke with a foreign accent.

2010 developments

In 2010, a facial reconstruction of the woman was created by artists at Dundee University. An appeal was made to the public and the new reconstruction would be circulated throughout several newspapers. Following the appeal, a couple named David and Barbara Liversedge came forward to authorities with a large amount of information. The couple claimed that they met the decedent back in 1972 and had lived with her in Bedfordshire for 6 months. The woman, believed to have been in her early 20s, told the couple that her name was Odile Ludic[1] and that she was from either north Paris or somewhere to the north of Paris. During the 6 month period, Odile often spoke fondly of her mother and sister but never mentioned her father. The woman had several friends, as well as a boyfriend, whom she spent much time hanging out with. She also worked in a packaging company. Odile would eventually leave Bedfordshire and later moved to Cambridge. The tip has failed to help authorities, but case is still being investigated.
