Baskin is just 20 years old.

Officials state that through investigative efforts including fingerprint comparison, and extensive canvassing of the area they have not been able to identify her.

The coroner’s office states that witnesses in the area of Plank and Mohican indicated that this female had been seen in the area for several weeks, but no one could provide her name. There have been reports of her dancing or standing in the roadways in this area, so there is a possibility that she faced some emotional challenges based on witness observations.

The victim is an African American female, estimated to be between 20-30 years old, she has no gray hair, has no tattoos, and each ear is pierced only once. No obvious, significant scars are visible.
