Original story:  Peaches, also known as “Girl with the Peach Tattoo” is a Jane Doe whose torso was discovered by a hiker on June 28, 1997 in Lakeview, New York, near Hempstead Lake State Park.

The torso was found in a Rubbermaid container with a red towel and a floral pillowcase.  The rest of her body has yet to be found.

The police posted a photo of her tattoo in hopes of finding who did it and Steven Cullen believes he was the one reports The Bristol Press.

He remembers her as a black female around 18-19 years old who was with her aunt and a cousin.  She told him she was from Bronx or Long Island as best he can remember, and she was in Connecticut because she had split with her boyfriend.  He believes she also had tattoos on her arms and lower legs and that may be why only her torso has been found.

Peaches had a surgical scar on her abdomen and her tattoo was located on her “left upper chest- small approx 2×1 inch multi-colored tattoo with orange-green-blue colors resembling shape of a peach with small green leaves on upper part and tiny droplets drawn at lower margin of tattoo.”

Peaches’ murder may be related to the Long Island serial killer investigation, though police have not revealed much information.
