|Historic LoDo: Local historian Silvia Pettem will discuss and sign her new book Someone’s Daughter: In Search of Justice for Jane Doe ($22.95 Rowman & Littlefield). In 1954, two college students were hiking along a creek outside of Boulder, Colorado, when they stumbled upon the nude and badly battered body of a young woman strewn on the rocks. Who was this woman? What had happened to her? The initial investigation turned up nothing, and the girl was buried in a local graveyard with a gravestone that read simply “Jane Doe, April 1954, Age About 20 Years.” Decades later, Pettem became determined to find out more about the mysterious victim. This fascinating story explores forensics of both the 1950s and today, as the new search attempts to identify the victim—and the killer.
