Description

In 1970, a family hiking in Norway stumbled upon the burned body of a woman. Police had very little to work with to try to identify this woman. There were, however, items scattered around the woman's body that appeared to have been staged. Days later, investigators found more of the woman's belongings inside some suitcases at a railway station. The items inside the suitcases were also intriguing as it appeared that any type of identifiable information had been removed from the items.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the intrigue and mystery surrounding the unidentified Jane Doe who has become known as The Isdal Woman. Investigators discovered quite a bit of information about the woman's movements before her death, and they interviewed a number of people who had seen her. These individuals had some very interesting things to say about the woman. Entries written in code, multiple aliases, which all would have required a different passport, and a documented check fraud scheme have led to much speculation in this case. But, the question remains, who was The Isdal Woman, and how did she die?
