Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Department created a Facebook page in hopes of someone would recognize the female only known as Bossier Doe.  Her body was found by hunters in a wooded area on January 28, 1981.  It was estimated she had been there between 4 to 6 weeks.  34 years later, Bossier Doe has been identified as 17-year-old Carol Ann Cole from Kalamazoo, Michigan.

34 years…that’s a long time, an eternity to those who have been searching for their loved one.  That’s how long I’ve been alive.  Tears filled my eyes as I watched the press conference and listened to Carol Ann’s sister, Jeanie, read her statement.

The investigation into Carol Ann’s murder is still ongoing.  Someone please come forward with any information you may have pertaining to her case.  Please contact Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office if you have any information that may help them solve Carol Ann’s case!!

This world and her family were robbed of a relationship and many more memories that could have continued to be made.  From what I have read so far, Carol Ann was an easy-going, loving, kind, and caring person.  She had a knack for taking care of young children.  I imagine she is up in Heaven right now helping take care of the children there.
