The buckskin girl:

The Buckskin girl, nicknamed so on account of a unique, handmade, deer skin poncho she was found wearing, is an unidentified, female homicide victim found in Troy, Ohio, on April 23rd 1981.
Sources differ on the exact location the body was found, some say Greenlee road in Troy, others say Newton.

She was found fully clothed, although shoeless, with no signs of sexual assault. She had died due to blunt trauma to the head. 

Believed to have possibly been a hitchhiking teenage runaway, or even the possible victim of a serial killer, she was estimated between the ages of 18 - 26. She was white, between 5'4 and 5'6, with brown eyes and brown / red hair parted in the center and pulled back into two high braids.
She had a scar on her chin, wrist, arm and ankle.

Due to the good condition of the body, investigators were able to obtain DNA, finger prints and dental information. Despite having the samples, the Buckskin girl has lay unidentified in Riverside cemetery, Troy, Ohio for 34 years,

So, who was the Buckskin girl?
And who killed her?
