STOCKTON, Calif. (KCRA) -- Detectives on Wednesday said they have plenty of evidence in a 17-year-old cold case from Stockton, but they still can't identify the woman whose body was found in a refrigerator so many years ago.
The woman's body was discovered in March 1995, stuffed inside a refrigerator tied shut and laying in a canal.
"Her hands are taped, her mouth is taped with a sock in her mouth, and it's black electrician's tape," said San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office Assistant Sheriff John Huber.
The woman's cause of death was deemed blunt force trauma to the head, but unlike many bodies dumped in the Delta, detectives said they had a lot of evidence to work with.
"Socks with toes, hiking boots, shorts… She's got a T-shirt on covered by another T-shirt… Victoria's Secret bra on," Huber said.
There was even a 1/3 of a carat diamond ring and a unique necklace found on the body.
Detectives tracked down where everything inside the refrigerator was made and sold, but they still haven't been able to identify the strawberry-blonde woman who was killed and stuffed inside.
Even dental records didn't help, they said.
After 30 years on the job, Huber said this is the case he wants to solve before he retires.
"I'll probably work on her after I leave, too," he said. "I know just about everything about the case by heart."
Despite checking thousands of names from missing persons lists and plenty of publicity through the years, the true identity of the Jane Doe, dubbed the "refrigerator lady," remains unknown.
