A Jane Doe, also known as ‘Corona Girl,’ has been identified as Sue Ann Huskey from Sulphur Springs, according to authorities out of Williamson County.
The unidentified woman was found in brush near I-35 in Williamson County on Sept. 25, 1989. She was found by authorities and was said to have sustained multiple gunshot wounds. At that time, it was determined that she was between 18-24 years of age.
According to reports, she was found wearing a white t-shirt with “Cinco De Corona” and “Celebrate Corona” logos with the sleeves and bottom cut like a fringe over a bra. She had on bikini panties under black knit pants, but no shoes and she wore one earring and 16-18 inch necklace consisting of one white bead in the center of four gold-colored beads.
During a Wednesday press conference held by the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office, Sgt. John Pokorny, with the Cold Case Unit, explained that in Aug. 2018, a tooth was sent to Virginia in the hopes of extracting useable DNA.
It took nearly a year of bones and teeth being sent to the lab to enable technicians to piece together a profile. Then in Nov. 2019, additional extracts were sent to the University of North Texas. In December, the DNA helped authorities to identify Jane Doe as Caucasian with southern roots, and the information was put into a genealogy database.
Several possibilities popped up in that phase of the investigation, thus leading investigators to the road of a decisive familiar DNA match and giving a name to Texas’ ‘Corona Girl.’
Now, after three decades, and the collaborated efforts of the Jane Doe project, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office positively identified the victim of the cold case this past week.
Jackie Delaney, the older sister of Huskey, told KXAN that detectives with the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office had informed her that they made a positive match to her sister with the previously unidentified “Corona Girl.”
