The identity of Jane Doe, the woman found suffocated and burned to death Dec. 27 on a wooded residential road in Salisbury Township, could soon be confirmed, according to Lehigh County Coroner Scott Grim.

Grim said his office is waiting to get DNA results, which could be later this week or next.

The coroner's office released the following description of the woman:

  • White or light-skinned Hispanic female

  • Between the ages of 20 and 40
  • Approximately 5 feet to 5 feet 2 inches tall

She may have been wearing:
