Details: "Shotgun Jane Doe" is the nickname for an unidentified woman who was picked up by two truckers on June 1, 1987 off I-81 near Bulls Gap, Tennessee. That night, they took her to Knoxville, where they attended a party. Afterwards, they attempted to break into a nearby home with her pretending to plead for help.
