On Sunday, April 16, 1995, the skull of an unknown woman was found floating in a creek near Moninger Road in Amwell, Washington County. At the time, the estimated time of death had been placed at around two years prior to being found.
It was learned that the skull had originally been found along the Pennsylvania-American Water Company reservoir, near Cove Road, in South Franklin in June 1993. The hunter who had found it didn't realize it was human but took it home and put it in a closet, where it remained for almost two years. He discarded it in Amwell Twp, after cleaning out the closet, about a month before it was discovered by a couple taking a walk in the area.
Authorities searched the woods near Cove Road, close to where the skull has first been discovered, but no additional remains were found.
