Sheriff hopes to identify woman in 'Jane Doe' case by releasing reconstruction sketches

Posted: Updated:

The Gregg County Sheriff's Office has released new facial reconstruction photos of a woman whose body was found in 2006.

An initial reconstruction of Jane Doe was released shortly after her body was discovered in October 2006. On October 2, 2013, her body was exhumed and her skull was used for another reconstruction using new 3D technology. This reconstruction was recently completed in January 2014 and released to the sheriff's office.

Both DNA and dental records were obtained during Jane Doe's initial autopsy. Those records have been compared to hundreds of missing persons throughout the United States and North America without success.

On October 6, 2006, the burning body of Jane Doe was discovered on an oil field right-of-way off of Fritz Swanson Road in Kilgore. The body was that of a white female believed to be between the ages of 17 and 22 years old. She was approximately 5'3" to 5'5" tall and weighed between 100 and 120 pounds. She was wearing size 7/8 jeans and a mauve or purple colored pull-over sweater. Her body was burned beyond recognition.

The Gregg County Sheriff's Department says they have received numerous calls regarding the possibility of the unidentified body being Brandy Wells. Wells has been eliminated through DNA and dental information.

Anyone with information regarding Jane Doe's identity is asked to contact Liteunant Kirk Haddix at 903-236-8411 or by email at
