Girl with gunshot wounds found in Dixon, California

Two field workers found the lifeless body of a white female in a cornfield on Sievers Road in Dixon, Solano County, California, United States on August 3, 1980. Authorities have yet to identify the body.

According to Solano County Sheriff’s Department investigator Jose Cisneros, the girl is 5’2″ tall and weighed around 115 pounds. Her age is believed to be 15-19.


The girl was wearing a white metal spoon ring on the left ring finger, a choker-type wood bead necklace, a green long-sleeved button-style woolen sweater and a light blue long-sleeved smock with a small white floral design. The smock had wooden buttons on the sleeves with those on the top portion broken and secured with a safety pin, Cisneros said.

Cisneros described the girl’s hairstyle as punk rock style. She had had brown eyes, brown hair and a small dark mole on the left side of her chin.

There were multiple gunshots in the unidentified girl’s head and neck. No other items or marks were found to help identify the body.

Anyone with information on the unidentified female is asked to contact the Solano County Sheriff’s Department by telephone at 707-429-6571 during the day or 707-429-6331 at any hour.
