Who Killed Wilma June Nissen?
On October 4, 1978, a telephone employee laying cable stumbled upon the deceased body of a female in Lyon County, Iowa, near Highway 182. The woman was referred to as Jane Doe for almost three decades. On January 31, 2006, she was finally identified as 23-year-old Wilma June Nissen by a lab technician when her left thumbprint matched a print card in the Los Angeles Police Department.
Wilma’s daughter Krissi recently reached out to me and shared her biological mother’s heartbreaking story. She was only one when her mother disappeared, and spent years wondering what happened to her. Krissi found out her mother had been killed when a friend sent her a newspaper article stating Wilma had been identified as Jane Doe from Lyon County. Ever since then, Krissi has devoted her life to catching Wilma’s killer(s) and bringing them to justice.
