New facial reconstruction photo released in 'Woodlawn Jane Doe' case

A new facial reconstruction photo may help break open a 40-year-old murder case.

National Center for Missing and Exploited Children on Monday released a new facial reconstruction image of "Woodlawn Jane Doe," a young woman whose body was found dumped near a cemetery in Woodlawn 40 years ago.

The center released the new photo on the anniversary of the day the young woman's body was found in 1976, with her hands bound behind her back and her body wrapped in a white sheet. The Baltimore County Police Department and police in Boston are running down leads and believe the woman may have lived in Boston.

According to a new lead released publicly on Monday, the young woman's name may have been Jasmine and she may have used the nickname, "Jassy." She may have lived with her family on Forbes Street in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston in the early 1970s. She may have relatives by the name of Blanca, Tito and Santana.

Another break in the case was publicized in March, when a scientist with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol analyzed microscopic grains of pollen that clung to her clothing that indicated she may have come from the Boston area.
