McDonald County Sheriff Dept.; Detective Lori Howard
Phone: (417) 223-7430, or your local police.
Medical Examiner Case # 90-21

Circumstance: Nicknamed Grace Doe, as Detective Howard was once told it would be “by the Grace of God” that this case will be solved. Howard is not giving up and is asking the public to please provide whatever information they may have to help solve her case and bring her true name to her. Grace Doe's skeletal remains were found on Dec. 2, 1990, near an abandoned farmhouse on Oscar Talley Road, east of Lanagan, in McDonald County. She had apparently been hogtied with six different types of binding, including a military issue parachute cord. There were no bullet or knife wound marks or signs of blunt force trauma on the skull or other bones, which indicates she may have been strangled.
