The woman found wandering the Woodbridge Center mall on Nov. 2, 1994, appeared to be in her mid-50s, spoke only Spanish and couldn't remember her name or where she lived. She carried an empty purse with no identification.
What mall security guards and police officers knew about her they divined by her appearance: She wore two rings, including a wed ding band. Her hair was combed and her clothes were clean.
Fourteen years later, authorities still don't know much about her.
The mystery woman, alternately referred to as "Jane Doe" and "Elba," has lived quietly -- and anonymously -- in New Jersey's psychiatric hospital system.
Sensing time may be running out -- diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, she is bedridden at the Garrett Hagedorn Psychiatric Hospital in Hunterdon County -- state Human Services officials are launching the biggest effort yet to find out who she is.

"Every human being is entitled to the minimal dignity of dying at least with their name," said Lt. Eduardo Ojeda of the Human Services Police Department. "This lady is a human being. I am sure she has some family member out there or friends who never knew what happened or what became of her. She may be a mother, a sister. She may be someone's grandmother."

Beginning this week, the woman's photos will be circulated to media outlets, particularly the Spanish-speaking press. Ojeda has contacted the consulates for the Colombian and Venezuelan governments and plans to canvass offices of other Central and South America countries.
Most familiar with her case sus pect she came to this country illegally. They believe when she showed signs of amnesia or dementia, a relative or friend may have left her at the mall, assuming someone would come to her aid.

Well, at least they didn't leave her in whatever 3rd world cesspool she originates from. She would have been dead 14 years ago, or raped by a pervert who preys on old ladies.

This is horrible just horrible story but I have heard it does happen more than people think.
People bring sick,mentaly ill relatives through border and dump them in hospitals or in this case a shopping mall and than take off.
Her family is long gone no one will claim her . No one wants a relative in an institution in Mexico . It is very very bad.
This is why open borders so sick can be bought her legally is the answer for everyone.

People that espouse taking from others without their permission are deserving of EVERY attack they get. Her entire argument seems to be that America has PLENTY of money, and we should pay for Mexicans. I'm sick and tired of illegal aliens LITERALLY picking my pocket and expecting me and the rest of the tax-paying Americans to fork over the dough so they can have a 'better life'.

My CHILD deserves a better life, too, and my FIRST responsibility is to see that HE gets it, LONG before some illegal border-jumper with a 'gimme, gimme, gimme' BAD ATTITUDE!

Sadly, "granny dumping" goes on all over this country. That sounds like what happened in this case. I honestly wonder if she may be a citizen, as in - came here w/ her family and b/c of dementia - reverted back to her native language. If this had occurred in a border state, I would be more likely to think someone had brought her over the border and dumped her, but it sounds to me like she literally wandered off from her residence in NJ or was purposely dumped by a family member.

What a very strange story.

I would say as much right as millions of Mexican illegal aliens have to the US.

I cant speak for Spain but for the US we've taken millions of their residents of Mexico's hands and paid the bills for their upkeep. Mexico owes us.
