Identified, 31 years on.
The identity of a teen girl killed in a crash more than 30 years has been revealed.
A fatal head on crash on October 27, 1987 in Tarcutta was thought to have taken the life of one 17 year old Jessica Pearce, according to the Border Mail.
The girl had been laying on the seat in the back and was ejected during the crash, killing her.
Others in the car didn't know her for long, and had told police that she was called "Jessie" or "Jessica". Another woman had incorrectly identified the body as being Jessica Pearce.
The body was buried in January of 1989 with a destitute burial with no friends or family because it had not been positively identified.
Many more similar burials had occurred without complete records of plot locations, thus deeming the exact location of the remains unknown, and not allowing police to exhume the body.
