The remains of a female between the ages of 18-24 were found on September 25, 1989. She was found on the west side of Interstate Highway 35 Exit 277 in Jarrell, Texas in Williamson County, Texas.
She was about 5’2″ and between 110 and 120 pounds. Her ears were pierced, but only one earring was recovered. The victim also wore a necklace containing a white bead in the center, surrounded by two gold-colored beads on either side. She wore a white shirt with the words “Cinco De Corona” with the bottom cut into fringe, leading to the Jane Doe’s nickname. She was also wearing black pants and a shirt cut into a bra with the words “American Legends” bearing a Native American design. She had an apedextamy scar and had black hair. Her body had significant damage.
On Wednesday, after being unnamed for 30 years, it was publicly announced that the remains were identified as Sue Ann Huskey. She was 17 years old at the time of her death, which was ruled a homicide by firearm. She was from Sulphur Springs, Texas, in northeast Texas. Results from DNA testing in 2018 and 2019 were linked to genealogy records, which eventually led to Huskey’s extended family members in Texas and a positive DNA match.
Sister Michelle Barnard thanked the cold case unit and DNA teams who worked on the case.
“They have given our sister back and now we can take her home,” said Barnard.
Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody said he had asked the family to be careful what they revealed as the investigation continues.
Sue’s father passed away in 2002 and her mother, Sue Bryant was at the press conference with the family.
