The skeletal remains of an unidentified adult female were discovered on August 9, 1997 on 51st Avenue south of Pecos Road on the Gila River Indian Reservation in Maricopa County, Arizona, south of Phoenix.

The estimated time of death, according to Maricopa County Media Examiners, is approximately four months prior to discovery (early to middle 1997)

Jane Doe is described as an adult woman believed to be either Hispanic, Native and/or Caucasian, between 30 – 50 years old. She had 10 inch long, dark brown hair, stood between 5’1” – 5’4”,  and appeared to have once carried children. The victim’s weight couldn’t be determined.

Murder Victim Discovered In An Arizona Desert On November 17, 2012

A composite sketch couldn’t be drawn because the victim’s remains were completely skeletal upon discovery.

Victim: Unidentified male
Date found: November 17, 2012 21:49
Location: Arivaca, Pima County, AZ

The murdered remains of an unidentified male were discovered on November 17, 2012 under a mesquite tree in a desert area east of Arivaca. His right hand and feet were not attached to his body nor were they ever located.

According to medical examiners the unidentified victim, also known as John Doe, was not recognizable because of near complete skeletal remains. They estimate his time of death occurring the same year of discovery (2012.)

The victim was wearing no clothing and had no identification on him and no one in Pima County, AZ has come forward to identify him. However, the area the deceased victim was located is known for migrant activity which gives the possibility that he wasn’t from the area, which would explain why nobody has come forward knowing who he is.

Description: Believed to be of Native American decent, between the ages 17 and 29 years. He stands roughly 5 feet 8 inches (61 in), weight  and eye color could not be determined due to decomposition. His hair color was unknown and it’s possible he was completely bald prior to his death.

Good identifying factor: The upper central incisors were winged (mesially rotated). This was likely noticeable to those who knew the victim. The lower third molars were missing before death and the upper third molars had not yet fully erupted. More information can be released by medical examiners, including DNA.

The identity of a young female discovered in Warren County, New Jersey on July 15, 1982 remains unknown over three decades later.

The unidentified female was given the name “Princess Jane Doe” after she was discovered in a wooded area in Blairstown Cemetary, Route 94, NJ. She had been beaten to death and medical examiners conclude her estimated time of death could have been up to several weeks prior to discovery. They also determined she wasn’t pregnant nor did she ever give birth. She had no drugs in her system at the time of her homicide.

The community was horrified that something like this could happen so close to home and saddened when nobody came forward to claim the body so they came together and raised the funds to give Princess Doe a proper burial and gravestone.

So many years have gone by and many believe Princess Doe wasn’t from the area due to the fact that nobody knows who she is. It’s possible she may even be from another Country which would explain why, despite thousands of people threw out the United States seeing her case, her identity remains a mystery. However, a witness did come forward saying she knew Princess Doe and that she lived in Long Island, NY and was estranged from her family.

Lt. Stephen Speirs of the Warren Co. Prosecutor’s Office has investigated Princess Doe’s case close for many years and had hoped to solve the mystery by July, 2007, which would have been the 25th anniversary of the discovery. But it’s now passing the 30th anniversary with just as many unanswered questions as there was 30 years ago.

Physical description: A young Caucasian female between 14-20 years of age with a thin frame. Eye color is unknown. When she was found she was wearing red nail polish on her right hand but no polish on her left, almost as if she started painting her nails but didn’t get to finish. Her left ear has two piercings, her right ear has an unknown amount of piercings.

She advised the driver she had been kicked out of her house due to drug abuse. She also told the driver she wanted to get tickets to a concert. She didn’t tell the driver any more information that would aid in identifying her.

Jane is believed to be a teenager between the ages 15-19 — The medical examiner’s officer say she is Biracial, Native-American or Latino/Caucasian.

Two unidentified babies discovered deceased in Minnesota may belong to the same mother

Authorities believe the two unidentified babies below may have the same biological mother. Although, they believed they had separate fathers. Both were discovered deceased in Minnesota less than three years apart.

Baby #1

Forensic artists from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children used photographs of the bodies and the infants’ skull measurements to create composite drawings of what the babies might have looked like at the time of their deaths.

The first victim was discovered on December 7, 2003 in Old Frontenac, Goodhue County, Minnesota

Estimated Date of Death: No more than two weeks, no less than two days.

Estimated age: Newborn (less than 48 hours old)
Hair: Curly, black hair.
Approximate Height/Weight: 14″; 7 lbs.

The unidentified baby boy was discovered on December 7, 2003 in Florence Township Beach in Frontenac, MN.

NCIC Number for baby number one:
U860017958  (Please refer to this number when contacting any agency with information regarding this case.)

 The case may be related to another unidentified newborn found in Red Wing in 1999.

The infant is a girl and she was located November 4, 1999 on the bank of the Mississippi River, in the small boat harbor in Red Wing, MN, a little over three years before the discovery of the boy. She was given the name Jamie.

Time of death: At-least 48 hours prior to discovery but no longer than two weeks.

Authorities think the composites could help piece together a frustrating puzzle. Over the years they have had over a 100 leads, yet the investigations remain unsolved.
Investigators believed that the infants were born alive. Autopsies were never able to ascertain causes of death. Officials believe that mother of the children may have hidden the pregnancies and is probably familiar with the area or possibly still living in the local areas.

After the discovery of both babies, a local couple paid to have them buried next to their own stillborn daughter, under headstones that read “God’s Little Angel.

NCIC Number for baby number two:
U530018814 (Please refer to this number when contacting any agency with information regarding this case.)

Who is baby Allison?

Baby silhouette (stock photo)

Unidentified White Female Newborn was given the name “Baby Allison” shortly after being found December 31, 2003 in Strasburg Township, Lancaster County (PA)

It was Wednesday, December 31, 2003 – New Year’s Eve, at around 3:30 in the afternoon. Children at the Sycamore Amish Schoolhouse on Weaver Road were taking the day’s trash to a burn barrel on the school’s property. They lit the trash but immediately put the fire out when they saw that something else was in the barrel.

It was a baby, a newborn baby girl with the umbilical cord still attached. She had been put into a plastic bag and placed in the burn barrel.

Stock photo of what a burn barrel looks like

A neighbor who had a telephone called the police. The coroner pronounced her dead at 5:00 that afternoon. An autopsy showed that the full-term, 6 lb girl had been born alive. Her throat had been slit. Genetically, she was determined to be a white female, of European ancestry. She was not the result of incest. There is less than a 3% chance that she came from the Amish community.

After hearing reports of the baby’s discovery, an employee of the Turkey Hill Minit Market on N. Decatur St in Strasburg recalled finding something in the store’s restroom on December 26th that might be connected to the case. The store is about 4 miles from where the baby was found. Evidence was collected from the restroom and sent for testing. Police started contacting customers who had made credit card purchases that day, hoping to find someone who had seen or heard anything unusual. The public was urged to come forward with any information that could aid in the investigation.

Police theorize that the child’s mother was likely a young woman, under 20 and probably from the local area. If the baby was born in the restroom, the mother, and possibly another person, would have had to have access to a vehicle to get the child from the store to the burn barrel behind the schoolhouse. But N. Decatur Street, Route 896, is the main road into Strasburg, frequented by locals and tourists alike. So it is possible, if not likely, that the child’s mother was from outside of the area.
