WHO IS SHE?
The Head With No Body—and No Answers
Jane Doe was embalmed, decapitated, and given red rubber balls for eyes. Was the woman found in rural Pennsylvania murdered, missing, or something else entirely?
ECONOMY, Pennsylvania — The head looked up at the boy with eyes made of red rubber balls.

The body was gone.
