Additional Information :

The deceased was found in a single person tent on June 17, 2009 in a wooded area off from Miller Rapids Road in Kenora. She is believed to have been in the tent about a week prior to being found.  She has come to be known as ‘Millie’ Doe.

The unidentified woman had undergone extensive surgery on her face and jaw, likely in her early 20’s. She also probably wore braces for some time, perhaps in her adulthood, before her surgery.  When found, the woman’s dental health showed some periodontal disease that is consistent with a person in the mid-40s to 50s.

In the early 1990’s, this type of surgery would have been done in a larger centre. The procedure involves cutting facial bones, repositioning and re-wiring both jaws. A patient’s jaws would remain wired for several weeks.  As well, wires sutures would remain in jaw.

The glasses worn by the woman can further be described as having been manufactured by Aspex (or its predecessors Cameo/Cartier/Chic). The frame is identified as 42/24/140 PC160 in #10 Matte Bronze. The frame was first introduced in 2000 and was sold in Canada and the United States until 2007.

The prescription is as follows: Right Eye: -250 -1.5 x 015; Left Eye: -250 – 1.5 x 170; PD 63mm +/- 2mm; CR39 lenses (grooved and nylon mounted).

Bio-geographic ancestry predicts that this woman is of European ancestry.
