Chester County Jane Doe was a female found dismembered in 1995.

Case

The decedent's nude torso was found in a suitcase along the Brandywine Creek, near Downingtown and West Chester, Pennsylvania on July 11, 1995. The suitcase had been covered with a green trash bag and was maroon in color.

Her legs had been removed from her pelvis and her torso was wrapped in a sheet, which was then placed in a plastic quilt bag. The bag was then wrapped in a quilt and placed in a suitcase, which was then tied with wire, taped, and placed in the garbage bag where it was later discarded.

On January 29, 1996, legs were discovered wrapped in trash bags in the Cores Creek State Park in Middletown Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The legs were partially skeletonized and the discovery site also contained a bag that had clothing items belonging to women and girls. Due to decomposition, DNA evidence could not match the legs and the torso, however the leg fit perfectly into the hip when doctors placed the right femur head into the acetabulum of the torso.

Investigators believe the victim was killed at another location and her remains were dumped where they would eventually be discovered. She had sustained some trauma to her face, indicating a small struggle but not a serious fight. There was no evidence of drugs in her system besides a small amount of alcohol or indication that she had been sexually assaulted.

Investigators theorize she did not come from the Philadelphia area and might not be from the United States.
