Stephanie Renee Judson (January 2, 1966 - c. 1996) was a woman whose skeleton was discovered in Ada Township, Michigan in 1997.

She was identified by the DNA Doe Project in January 2022.


The victim was found by a maintenance worker in a wooded area behind the Ada Township Park located at 9232 East Fulton Street and five miles east of Grand Rapids, Michigan. During the mid-1990s a serial killer was responsible for the murders of prostitutes in Kent, Muskegon, and Ottawa Counties. Authorities speculate she may have been a victim of these serial killings.


  • Healed fracture on left side of nose at bridge; it would have been noticeable, especially to people who knew her.
  • All but two of the teeth were recovered. Several teeth showed a lack of dental care. Dental restorations are present in teeth #14, #15, #18, #19. Tooth #2 had a large untreated cary that had destroyed at least half of the crown of the tooth. Tooth #16 was peg shaped and should be very identifiable in a pre-mortem x-ray. There was a tooth glued back into place. The lack of dental care on some the teeth suggests she may have been of low socioeconomic standing.


  • Dark blue leg warmer found nearby.
