I90 Jane Doe
White female with mixed European and Native American Ancestry, 5’51/2” tall, weighing 110-115 pounds with light brown to fair skin and brown or hazel eyes with brown medium length hair, who was 17-23 years of age. It is possible that she had previously given birth. She would have gone missing before or around February 1992.
White male, with Type O blood, who most likely was employed as a truck driver and was middle aged in the late 1980s to the mid-1990s, who drove cross country and spent time driving through Tennessee, Wyoming and possibly Virginia and Arizona.
On March 10, 1991 at or about 12:30pm, the Spring Hill Police Department located in Spring Hill, TN responded to a body located on Saturn Parkway at the off ramp of Port Royal Road. The body was on the north side of Saturn Parkway traveling west bound. The white female was located in the wood line approximately 100 feet from Saturn Parkway.
The white female was dressed in a black cotton pleated mini skirt; a pull over sweat shirt, gray and aqua in color; a thermal underwear top, aqua in color; a black bra that was pulled up above her breast; and a pair of tan colored panty hose with the cotton crotch cut or torn out. The female was not wearing shoes and no personal effects or identification was found on or with the body. The female’s face was covered with blood and there was marks/bruising on the neck of the female. The crime scene yielded no significant evidence other than skid marks that were made on the side of the roadway that indicated that an unloaded tractor trailer rig had locked up its tires. The skid marks were directly in front of the location of the body. There was blood also found on the side of the roadway, which was later identified to belong to the female.
The white female was later identified, on April 9, 1991, by her fingerprints to be Pamela Rose Aldridge McCall (Victim); the victim was from Topping Virginia. Investigators learned that the victim was known to travel with truck drivers and often frequent truck stops, and went by the nick name of “Tender Touch”.
The autopsy of the victim revealed that the victim was approximately 24 weeks pregnant and the cause of death was manual strangulation. The victim had suffered from a pulmonary edema that accounted for the blood on the victim and the side of the roadway. The time of death was placed at or around midnight on March 10, 1991 or the late hours of March 9, 1991.
Investigators located a witness who stated that on March 10, 1991 at or about 5:00 am the witness seen a dark color Peterbilt or Kenworth tractor with a white box trailer at the location now known as the crime scene. The witness stated that the tractor and trailer was without any markings that the witness noticed. The witness stated that when the witness noticed the skid marks that the witness figured the tractor trailer was empty which would cause the jumping pattern.
During the early investigation, investigators learned that the victim had been at the Union 76 truck stop off of I-65 on Peytonsville Road, located north of Saturn Parkway exit just a few miles. The victim was seen there in the company of a trucker. The victim took a shower there at the Union 76 truck stop by presenting to the clerk a Union 76 truck stop shower ticket; however the ticket was from a different Union 76 truck stop which the clerk was unable to recall exactly which Union 76 truck stop issued the shower ticket. The victim upon returning from the shower was dressed in a black mini skirt and paid for two cups of coffee and was last seen getting into a dark colored Peterbuilt or Kenworth with no visible markings, with a white male with a receding hair line, who unlocked the truck cab so the female could get in the cab.
Investigators learned through their investigation that the last possible truck driver that the victim was seen with was a “MARTEEN” truck driver that was heavy set with a full beard. The victim was last seen with this truck driver on March 8th or 9th at the Great American Truck Stop in Columbia, SC investigators learned that the truck driver or victim has not been seen since then at that truck stop.
This homicide went cold, even though investigators followed all leads and interviewed numerous witnesses and suspects.
On April 4, 2019, 22nd Judicial District Attorney General Brent Cooper directed Criminal Investigator Tommy G. Goetz to reopen the case/investigation. Upon Tommy G Goetz meeting with the Spring Hill Police Department and taking possession of the entire case file and evidence, investigator Goetz re-submitted anal and vaginal swaps of the victims for DNA testing.
On May 21, 2019, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) lab notified investigator Goetz that a male profile had been identified from the vaginal swab and that the same male DNA profile was identified with two victims of a homicide in Wyoming. TBI ran the profile against CODIS and no match was found which would indicate that the male was either in prison or deceased due to the fact that the State of TN did not begin to participate in CODIS until 1997 or 1998, some 6 to 7 years after the homicide of Pamela Rose Aldridge McCall.
Upon speaking with investigators in Wyoming, it was determined that we believed we had a serial killer, who was more likely than not a truck driver. The victims in Wyoming were both female, one found on I-90 and the other on I-81 some 300 miles apart. Both victims were found in early 1992; however it is believed that one had been dead since late 1991. Both victims’ deaths were determined to be from manual strangulation. Furthermore, Wyoming investigators did in 2018, submit their DNA profile to PARABON NANOLABS, which can test the profile submitted for Genomic Ancestry, whereas in this case the DNA profile was determined to be a white male according to PARABON NANOLABS report dated October 29, 2018.
