FOX 7 Discussion: How Debra Jackson was identified

After four decades, the woman strangled and left behind along I-35, wearing nothing but "orange socks" has been identified. Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody said an updated forensic sketch of unidentified victim was the key.

After releasing the new sketch in June, a woman gave the Williamson County Sheriff's Office a call. "She saw the new forensics image of "orange socks" on the news and believed that orange socks may have been her missing sister identified as 23-year-old Debra Jackson," Chody said.

Joining Mike Warren and Rebecca Thomas in the FOX 7 Austin studio now to discuss the process of identifying Debra Jackson is Jackie Jones with the DNA Doe Project.
