A year later and 100 miles away, another young woman was found dead in a box near a campground. Her identity was unknown and she was also buried as Jane Doe. The second Jane Doe’s death was attributed to a serial killer, Benjamin Herbert Boyle; however, the circumstances behind the first Jane Doe’s murder remained a mystery until 1993. In 1993, a young woman named Terry called America’s Most Wanted and provided the answers the investigators needed to identify both Jane Does and prosecute their true murderer, their mother, Theresa Knorr.
