Racine County Jane Doe was wearing a shirt similar to the one pictured

Racine County Police have been trying to determine the identity of an unidentified female discovered in a corn field on 92nd Street between 6 and 7 Mile roads in Raymond by a man walking his dog on July 21, 1999.

She had been abused and murdered and according to reports in the weeks before her murder she suffered blunt force trauma to many different parts of her body. She was also malnourished and showed signs of being sexually assaulted. Her left ear was battered, commonly referred to as “Cauliflower Ear”.

Retired Racine County Detective Eileen Reilly, who led the search for clues on the identity of the Jane Doe, said she believed the young woman could possibly be from another country.

Reilly told The Journal Times during the height of the investigation, that the victim had hired a caregiver for her mother who was not a United States citizen.

After the discovery over a decade ago, media and journalists spoke about the case with representatives from the Milwaukee office of the FBI since human traffickers used O’Hare International Airport as a transportation hub. According to the website enddemandillinois.org Chicago’s central location makes the airport a target destination for traffickers. That site’s goal is to reduce the demand for the sex trade by “shifting law enforcement’s attention to sex traffickers and people who buy sex, while proposing a network of support for survivors of the sex trade.”

Chicago’s central geographic location, regionally divided and often insular ethnic communities, transportation infrastructure, and the O’Hare International Airport make the city an ideal location for traffickers to bring victims into Illinois and transport them to other cities and states. This would explain why, after twelve years, the identity of the victim is still unknown.

Or, perhaps Racine County Jane Doe arrived in USA as an Au-Pair who met up with the wrong people. In 1999 the demand for Au-Pairs from Eastern Europe, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic were strong.

The skeletal remains of a child or young teenager were discovered floating in the East River located near 57th Street in New York City. Medical Examiners estimate her age as being between 12 and 18, and they believe she has been deceased for up to several months prior to discovery. She was found wearing dark-colored cargo pants, a Champion blue sports bra, blue boxer shorts, a t-shirt with a skunk printed on the front and the words “Perfect Thyroid” on the back (Perfect Thyroid is a local band originating in the Kingston, NY area.)

A photo of the shirt and pants can be seen in the left-hand bottom corner.

Due to the condition of the remains, some items in the composite – such as hairstyle and skin tone – are the artist’s estimations based on the description medical examiners gave and should NOT be the sole significant marker for identification.

Anyone with information regarding this cold case is asked to please contact the following agencies:

NOTE: An unidentified individual located on US soil could be from anywhere around the world. Canada is closer to NY than California and it’s possible the victim was brought from up north. Child and females are the most targeted for abduction and/or human sex-trafficking and thousands of victims are smuggled into the US every year for profit. If you’re from another country don’t exclude the idea that this victim could be one of your own. Leave no stone unturned.

Who is this man?

living_john_doe

Who is he?

It was February, 2000 when this unidentified adult male woke up in the woods next to a highway. Soaking wet he got up and walked in direction of where the humming sound came from. Proceeding along the highway, police stopped him to ask him who he was and where he came from. And then ….. he realized for the first time that he was completely unaware of his own identity and past, place of origin, who he is, nothing, nothing, nothing. He had no understanding of the Dutch language, he just spoke some English.

Now 3½ years later, he still knows nothing about his own identity or where he comes from. He knows nothing from before he was found along the highway in Holland, by whom he was left there, etc, etc.

All he can now remember are a few scattered memories to do with Norway. Also he was recognized 3 years ago by a man in the street saying he came from South Africa. He is looking for his identity and past. Perhaps his friends and family are looking for him too.
My kind and urgent request is:
Does anybody recognize this man?
Would you be able to spread out this notification in places connected to missing persons?
Could you reply to this request, even if you feel you have little to offer?

Click Resa Africa if you think you know this man.
