Local authorities, the FBI, and the Body Farm at UTenn all helped in giving Pholia Chavez,formerly known as that Summerfield woman, her identity. Hopefully, her identity will lead to her killer.

DNA is amazing - catching her killer will surely be a challenge... my prayers are with the technology and her family.

"a groupie following the Grateful Dead and lusting for love."
She might of been a Deadhead. Whoah. Thanks for sharing the story, I'm glad they have figured out who this sister is, and now I hope her killer can finally be found.

Daughter of 'Jane Doe' learns about mother; killer 'could still be out there,' she says
BY BETH HUNDSDORFER AND GEORGE PAWLACZYK - News-Democrat
Katie found and lost her mother in one day.
Katie is the daughter of Summerfield's "Jane Doe," who was strangled and left in a cornfield outside the small village. She remained unidentified for more than 21 years until in January 2008 an FBI fingerprint recheck revealed she was 27-year-old Eulalia Pholia Mylia Chavez Wilcomer.
"I was at work and I waited until I got home and I Googled it," said Katie, who asked that only her first name be used to protect her and her adopted family. "I was like, 'Oh, my God!' So I found out who she was and that she was murdered in the same day."

The news of her mother's murder brought fear, said Katie.
"He could still be out there. You would think that after 20 years, he is obviously unstable. If something with my name on it goes into print, anybody could read it," Katie said. "He might be cuckoo bananas if he's going around killing people."

Left in a field after a concert. Reminds me of Morgan Harrington. But I guess that could be hundreds of unfortunate girls and people. Evil people all around.
