LA GRANDE, OR -- The body of a young woman found outside La Grande on August 27, 1978 remains unidentified. Now 44 years later, State Police say they hope for new leads in the case.
Earlier this month, forensics experts combed through a rural property in Union County where cadaver dogs had shown recent interest. Searching the three acres around the original burial site, they found more than 50 bones. But none turned out to be human, and no useful evidence was discovered.
The Finley Creek Jane Doe remains unidentified but OSP hopes to eventually bring closure to her family.
