Police ask public’s help identifying woman whose body was found in 1988

By Lieutenant Diane Aguinaga, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau

The Antioch Police Department is asking for the public’s help to assist in their continuing efforts to find or identify citizens who have been reported missing or that are unidentified.

In late April, 1988 a citizen called the Antioch Police Department to report a decomposing body that was found off of Somersville Road, in a gulley, just south of Buchanan Road. Ultimately, the circumstances at the time did not lead to any indication of homicide or other felonious assault. An investigation to identify the subject has been ongoing ever since.

Antioch Police investigators responded to the area and located a body that had appeared to have been there for several weeks. The subject was determined to be a black female adult, near 40 years of age (approximately 35 to 45 years of age), and about 5’04” tall. The female’s weight was unable to be determined.

Of particular note: she was wearing a light pink knit long sleeved sweater with thin horizontal light blue stripes and a cloth collar; Levi’s blue jeans over grey sweats; brown socks; and light blue Nike tennis shoes with a white Nike “swoosh” symbol on them. On her left wrist she was wearing a gold watch with a maroon face, and she had on a thin gold necklace, with a gold pendant. The pendant was of the block letter “F”. Some keys were found in the area. There were (2) key rings with (3) Ford automobile keys, (3) miscellaneous keys, (1) oversized diaper pin, and (1) metal letter “F” with a blue face.

Please review the photographs, above and below, displaying a clay sculpture likeness of our Jane Doe, her clothing, and her unique jewelry.

Citizens with any information are urged to contact Detective Fortner at 925-779-6930.
