ANGOLA, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - It will be 11 years ago next month that a Steuben County farmer discovered the remains of an unidentified woman in a field.

After all this time, police are still no closer in identifying the woman who they call, Jane Doe.

Investigators do believe her death was not from natural causes and that she possibly was strangled.

Police say it's important that the case get solved.

Det. Harry Neal Nix with the Indiana State Police says, “There is a family out there somewhere, that is missing a member of their family, and we would like to, ultimately someday, even if we can't determine who killed her, we would like to be able to at least let them know what happened to her body, and get the body back to them if possible.”

Jane Doe is described as a white or Hispanic woman, 40 to 50 years old and approximately 5 feet, 8 inches tall, and redish curly hair

She had a watch on, a turquoise ring, and hoop earrings.

She also had a cross tattoo on her left shoulder.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Indiana State Police.
