WALKER COUNTY, Texas — On Tuesday, new details will be released in the case of a woman who was killed more than four decades ago.
In 1980, a woman's body was found on the side of I-45 in Walker County, which is north of Houston. She had been strangled.
For years, she was known as the Walker County Jane Doe because her actual identity was a mystery.
Now, sources have told KHOU 11 News that investigators were finally able to identify her.
Her story was first featured on Grace White's "Missing Pieces" series in 2017. The series highlights cold cases.
The Walker County Sheriff's Office announced plans to hold a news conference on Tuesday morning to provide updates on the developments in the case.
