On April 14, 1990 hikers on North Table Mountain located the body of a female in a ravine just off of Highway 58. Investigation determined that the body was that of 15 year old Jessica Caudill, who had been deceased for several days.
Jessica was a runaway from Georgia, who was known to have hitched rides with truck drivers, and had previously done so all the way to California. Jessica also used the name Night Child and Angel Heart when she traveled. She was frequently seen wearing a denim jacket with brown leather fringe.
She was known to have hung out at truck stops, and was believed to have been seen at the Union 76 Truck Stop at West 44th Avenue and Ward Road in Wheat Ridge.
