“Jane Doe” was discovered the morning of April 27, 2002 (some reports say 04/26/12) behind strip-mall in the 1800 Block of E. University Dr in Maricopa County, Tempe, AZ. The medical examiner listed her cause of death as cocaine intoxication, which was ruled neither an accident nor a homicide.
“There’s just not enough information to know,” said Detective John Thompson of the Tempe Police Department. Who was talking about her cause of death.
According to Doe Network, the victim had been picked up near 32nd Street and Greenway Road in Phoenix the following day while hitchhiking. She advised the driver she had been kicked out of her house due to drug abuse. She also told the driver she wanted to get tickets to a concert. She didn’t tell the driver any more information that would aid in identifying her.
Jane is believed to be a teenager between the ages 15-19 — The medical examiner’s officer say she is Biracial, Native-American or Latino/Caucasian.
“We’ve done everything we absolutely could have to try an identify this person,” said Christen Eggers, an investigator for the Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Office.
