Identity of Ohio's 'Buckskin Girl' finally discovered 37 years later

Identity of Ohio's 'Buckskin Girl' finally discovered 37 years later

An Arkansas woman has been identified 37 years after her body was discovered in a ditch along an OH roadway. In 2009, her mitochondrial DNA profile was developed at the NamUs DNA lab, and both genetic profiles of the deceased were entered into the FBI's Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).

After continued efforts - including a facial reconstruction made by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children - she was identified as Marcia King on Monday, the sheriff's office said. The breakthrough came on April 9 during DNA testing. She was found clothed, wearing bell-bottom blue jeans, a brown turtleneck sweater with an orange crisscross design on the front, and a handmade tan buckskin pullover jacket with leather fringe around the seams and a deep purple lining. Furthermore, King was never reported missing, and little was known about her until Greg Bridenbaugh, a farmer on Greenlee Road, found her corpse.

"They requested that be respected", said Duchak. In summing up the long investigation, Sheriff Dave Duchak told the Dayton Daily News that "Law enforcement never forgets".

"I said, I have the cases, if you have the technology", Murray said. "We've had a long journey to where we are today". "After thirty-seven years, the body of the "#Buckskin Girl" has been identified. More specifically, the DNA Doe Project, which uses the latest in forensic science to help identify unidentified murder victims, used hair and fiber samples to unveil the true identity of "Buckskin Girl".

King had been dead just a few hours when authorities discovered her body on Greenlee Road, about 20 miles north of Dayton. It's not clear what brought the Arkansas native to the state, but she was known to have ties to the Pittsburgh and Louisville areas, according to Fox 19 Now.

The case is still ongoing, and Miami County officials have set up a tip line (937-440-3990) so that members of the general public can contact the Miami County Sheriff's Department with any information regarding King's disappearance or murder. Speaking Wednesday, Miami County Sheriff Steve Lord said he has been in touch with the victim's family, who have been cooperative. Bob Swietzer was one of the original investigators in the Jane Doe murder case.
