TROY — A young woman found dead in a Miami County ditch known as the “buckskin girl” will finally have a headstone bearing her name.
New genetic genealogy tools through the nonprofit DNA Doe Project led to the discovery of the woman’s identity: 21-year-old Marcia L. King of Little Rock, Arkansas, the Miami County sheriff announced in April.
King was found in April 1981 in a ditch along Greenlee Road west of Troy. She was dubbed “buckskin girl” for the jacket she was wearing. Her homicide remains unsolved.
Now that King’s body has finally been identified, her burial site at Riverside Cemetery in Troy will now reflect that.
Her family is expected to travel to Miami County for a brief memorial on Friday when a new headstone with her name will be placed on her grave.
