Investigators in Illinois have identified the decapitated head of a woman found in a state park in 1993.

Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Bullard Sr said the remains were identified as Susan Lund, who was reported missing from Clarksville, Tennessee, in December 1992.

Lund’s husband, who has since died, reported her missing, WZTV reported.

The remains had been known as Ina Jane Doe since two girls found the head on a roadway in Wayne Fitzgerrell State Park on January 27, 1993. Lund, who was 25 when she disappeared, reportedly set off to walk to a grocery store on December 24, 1992, but never returned home.

A University of New Hampshire anthropologist offered to reexamine the case in February 2021. A DNA profile created from the remains matched one of Lund’s siblings.

“I’m just speaking on behalf of her three children,” said Pamela Reyes, one of Lund’s sisters. “They just really want people to know that they’re grateful to find out that they weren’t abandoned by their mother.”

Lund’s children were 6, 4, and 2 when she disappeared.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the Clarksville Police Department are investigating the homicide. Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Kilby at 931-648-0656, ext. 5651, or to remain anonymous, call the Clarksville Montgomery County Crime Stoppers Tipsline at 931-645-8477.
