The victim was located inside a tent along a service trail south of San Pedro Avenue, just off of Highway 1 in Pacifica, California on June 6, 2006.

The tent she was found in contained many books, including two Bibles, a “Busy Women’s Journal” with several scriptures noted and Harry Potter. On the tent were letters made of tape stating, “no go, no eat, no drink, murder.”

Her fingerprints were run through the county system and revealed a picture, name, date of birth and place of birth. All the information was fake.

Police picked up the woman in January for walking along the expressway acting erratically. She was booked into the San Mateo County Jail by the California Highway Patrol. The name she gave at the time of her arrest was Sam Smith, with a date of birth of January 20, 1960 and a birthplace of Louisville, Kentucky. She was released with no charges.

The cause of the woman's death remains undetermined because her body was too badly decomposed to allow a ruling. But officials don't believe she was murdered because there were no obvious signs of trauma.

According to the coroner's report, the woman left writings in some of her books that indicated she planned to starve herself to death. Toxicology tests were inconclusive.

Investigators found a newspaper in the tent dated March 2, which could indicate she'd been dead several months.

Coroners have tried to match her with the dental records of several other missing persons but have not found a match.

any ideas ladies and gents???? this lady has stuck with me for a while....

Seems pretty straight forward, some one with a mental disability decided to die a slow painful death and was found a few months later during the summer when people would be out and about the area.
