On November 1st, 1980, the body of a young female was found on the side of Interstate 45 near Huntsville in Walker County, Texas. For 41 years, this girl was unidentified and known as Walker County Jane Doe. It wasn’t for the lack of investigative effort – the case had been revisited periodically over the years. Rather, the Jane Doe’s identity remained unknown because the technology didn’t exist until recently. When Walker County Sheriff’s Detective Thomas Bean took up the case in 2015, even he had to wait for the right technology to come along. Finally, in July 2020, he connected with Othram Incorporated and on November 9th, 2021, Walker County Jane Doe was given back her rightful name, 14-year-old Sherri Ann Jarvis, and her family finally knew what happened to her. Though identifying Sherri is certainly an amazing feat and a step in the right direction, her killer remains at large, leaving her story still unresolved.
