UPDATE: Unidentified Human Remains, East Galesburg Brick Yards - 1996

DNA testing has concluded that the unidentified remains found in the East Galesburg Brick Yard in 1996 are that of a female.

According to the 1996 police reports, the remains were found to be dressed in the following clothing:

Light colored, "Sears" brand pants
Blue, zippered hooded sweatshirt
White, "Laurie Mae" brand blouse with black and red pinstripes
Ankle Pom Pom socks, white with yellow trim and yellow pom pom
Brown/Tan, "KangaROO" brand boots, size 8

Research conducted on the KangaROO brand name revealed that the company did not manufacture this style of boot until 1982-1984.  The boots have the trademark KangaROO zipper pouch on the side and could have been referred to as "Snow Joggers".

Photographs of the clothing and boots have been posted on the Unsolved Crimes page at www.knoxcountysheriffil.com
