  • Clothing: a T-shirt adorned with Max, the protagonist from "Where the Wild Things Are". Max is pictured on the shirt next to one of the monsters from the children's classic. Listed below the two characters is a San Rafael, California, address and phone number. Atop the characters is Where the Wild Things Are, a toy shop named after the book, that was already out of business when the woman was found. Detectives at the time tracked down the store owner, who said no list was kept of who bought or was given the 300 shirts that were made. She also wore panties.

Case History
The victim was located on August 28, 1991, stabbed and partially buried, in South Ozone Park, NY. The body, clad in just a T-shirt and panties, was stuffed in a garbage bag and partially buried in a small wooded area at Lefferts Boulevard and South Conduit Avenue, near Kennedy Airport.
She had been stabbed in the chest several times. She had not been sexually assaulted, and the absence of tattoos on her body and narcotics in her system indicates she probably was not a prostitute or a drug addict. She may be a runaway with ties to California.
The owner of the toy shop handed the T-shirts out to customers between 1978 and 1981.
