LEAGUE CITY, Texas (FOX 26) - Police say two women who were found dead in oil fields on Calder Road in League City decades ago have finally been identified.
The body of an unknown woman "Jane Doe" was discovered in the oil fields at the end of Calder Road on February 2, 1986. The skeletal remains of another unidentified woman "Janet Doe" were discovered in the same oil field area on September 8, 1991.
Using genetic genealogy, League City detectives were able to identify the two women after three decades. Police have not released their identities. Detectives are actively investigating the circumstances surrounding their deaths.
In December of last year, League City police released new information about the two homicide victims in hopes it would help lead to their identity. Through forensic DNA analysis conducted by Parabon NanoLabs, predictions were made about the women's characteristics and composite sketches were created.
