Georgia investigators push to identify ‘Baby Jane Doe’ whose body was found on Ware County dirt road

WARE COUNTY, Ga. — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is making a new push to identify a little girl whose body was found along a dirt road in Ware County more than 30 years ago.

GBI shared information about “Baby Jane Doe” on social media on Thursday.


No one knows her name, but someone went through a lot of trouble to hide her body back in 1988.

Investigators say the little girl was about 3 years old and died two months before her body was found in a wooden box on the side of the road. Carol Schweitzer with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children told Action News Jax in 2015 a trucker found the box on December 21, 1988 off Duncan Bridge Road in Millwood, which is northwest of Waycross.

New images were released of Baby Jane Doe in 2017. The GBI told Action News Jax in 2017 she was in a brown baby blanket placed in a gym bag that was in a cement filled suitcase that was stuffed into a TV console cabinet at an illegal dump site.
