It’s unbelievable that a woman could be struck down and not identified decades. That’s exactly what happened in Baker, California when an unknown woman, only classified as Jane Doe #04-76, attempted to make her way across Interstate 15 around 2:00 a.m.
According to reports, it was August 28, 1976, when Jane Doe was hit by a car traveling northbound on the freeway. The 15 is a wide, busy highway without a crosswalk, so her feat wasn’t an easy one. She was just south of the Baker Boulevard overpass and died at the scene. Her face was recognizable, but even with artist renditions, no one has come forward to claim her as a loved one.
Jane Doe #04-76 is described as being 5 feet 6 inches tall and 160 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair that was styled in a 4-inch afro. Her eyes were hazel, and she’s said to have been anywhere from 15 to 30-years-old. There were plenty of distinguishable marks on her, including a 1.75-inch scar just below her navel, and a 0.5-inch scar on her right breast, and a 1-inch irregular scar on her abdomen. The Doe Network shared that her “earlobes had healed perforations” and her fingernails had the remains of black nail polish. Jane Doe reportedly had all 32 of her teeth and they were in good condition with no dental changes. Her fingerprints and DNA are on file.
In addition to her large, plastic, octagon-shaped prescription glasses (25+100X90 on 4 base. 46X42 Octagon. 22 Bridge, temple 5.25), Jane Doe was wearing a dark pullover blouse, dark blue slacks, and brown slippers. She wasn’t wearing any jewelry.
Anyone with information regarding this decades-old mystery is urged to contact the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner at 909-387-2978.
Please share the story of Jane Doe #04-76 in order to reignite the investigation into identifying this poor woman. She is our sister and her life matters.

That day, it’s reported that the 19-year-old wasn’t feeling well so she decided to leave work early to make an appointment at the student health center located at the University of Texas.
