Silvia Pettem, the author of Someone’s Daughter: In Search of Justice for Jane Doe, discusses her book about the case of a young murder victim, whose body was found in April, 1954, west of Boulder. The local community raised the funds to bury her; then 50 years later they rallied to exhume her skeletal remains, profile her DNA, and complete a facial reconstruction – all in the hopes of providing an
identification and returning her remains to her family.

Silvia Pettem is an award winning author, historical researcher and cold case historian from Boulder. She was a finalist in the 2010 Colorado Book Awards for SOMEONE’S DAUGHTER and was also recognized by the Boulder Heritage Roundtable Association for her book. She was a first place winner in the Colorado Independent Publishers’ Association awards as well as first place winner for life stories in the Writer’s Digest national self-published book awards for her book Separate Lives: the Story of Mary Rippon
