On October 16, 1997, a hunter discovered the skeletal remains of an unidentified child in a remote wooded area near Indian Creek Road, South of Kelly Spring Road.

The body was wrapped in plastic sheeting commonly used in construction. The plastic was secured with gray duct tape.

Investigators believe that sometime in late 1996, the nude body of the teenage girl was dumped in Indian Creek. The body drifted down the creek and washed onto the bank where it was found by a hunter.
