Clothing & Personal Items
An elderly couple spotted what they believed to be a body or mannequin lying face down in the snow over a hill near US Route 250.
The woman had been dead for two days but she was dropped off only a few hours before being found. Snow had fallen over the three previous days but there was no snow on top of the body. There were fresh tracks and footprints near the body.
West Virginia State Police troopers were looking for a white male in his 40s in connection with the case. He described the man as weighing between 185 and 200 pounds and standing about 5 feet, 10 inches tall. The man was apparently spotted in the area where her body was found.
It's possible that she may have worked at, frequented or lived near a bar in Wheeling. There appeared to be no evidence of a struggle or of sexual assault or signs of violence.
The unidentified woman was given a funeral and buried in the family plot of a couple who "adopted" her.
