Jackson County John Doe

The state of Wisconsin seems to have a disproportionate number of dismembered victims. One theory behind this strange phenomenon is the people in Wisconsin like to hunt and therefore are more familiar and comfortable dissecting a once living creature. While a lot of people in Wisconsin love their hunting, hunting is an activity that is cherished all over the United States and is certainly not limited to the Mid-West. Going back through news archives, the oldest dismembered victim I could find is that of the Jackson County John Doe discovered in 1978.

St. Croix County Jane Doe

On October 19, 2002 an innocent group of Boy Scouts made a discovery that would forever haunt them. While on the side of a roadway collecting trash for a charity project, a young teen picked up a garbage bag that looked similar to the ones they were using and peeked inside. He saw what he thought to be the skull of a deer, upon closer examination however, he realized he was holding the skull of a human being.
