“Jane Doe” was discovered the morning of April 27, 2002 (some reports say 04/26/12) behind strip-mall in the 1800 Block of E. University Dr in Maricopa County, Tempe, AZ.  The medical examiner listed her cause of death as cocaine intoxication, which was ruled neither an accident nor a homicide.

There’s just not enough information to know,” said Detective John Thompson of the Tempe Police Department. Who was talking about her cause of death.

According to Doe Network, the victim had been picked up near 32nd Street and Greenway Road in Phoenix the following day while hitchhiking. 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.

“We’ve done everything we absolutely could have to try an identify this person,” said Christen Eggers, an investigator for the Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Office.

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.)

Agency Case Number for baby number one: GO03-127

Who is baby Allison?

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.

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.

Couple Murdered Over 35 Years Ago In S.C. Still Unidentified

 Jane Doe

Above photos are two sketches showing what both victims looked like.

The female victim a.k.a “Jane Doe”  is described as having medium length brunette hair and blue-green/gray eyes. She was about 5’5” (165 cm) weighing roughly 105 pounds (47 Kg), thin frame and was estimated to be between the ages of 18-20 years.  Jane didn’t have any surgical scar. She is described as being an attractive young woman. She had pierced ears. Her eyelashes were very long. She had two small beauty marks on her left cheek and one on the right side of her face. She also had a mole on her right calf. Her legs were unshaven. She didn’t have elaborate dental work. Her upper and lower right wisdom teeth were missing and she had fillings in all back teeth. Her front teeth probably gave an even appearance when she smiled.

The male victim a.k.a “John Doe”  is described as having brown hair and brown eyes. He was about 6 feet tall (185 cm) and 150 pounds (70 Kg). He was estimated to be in his 20’s. He has a 4” (10 cm) appendectomy scar and two 2” (5 cm) scars on his right shoulder. John Doe had very elaborate and expensive dental work with bridges and crowns. He had an acrylic or porcelain crown on the left front tooth and fillings in most upper teeth. He also had some missing teeth in top and bottom but noticeable in top back left. He was missing his lower wisdom teeth.

The couple was discovered murdered at 6.20 AM on August 9, 1976 on Locklair Road, a rural dirt road between Interstate 95 and S.C. 341 in Sumpter County, South Carolina, USA. The couple had been shot at close range several times: in the back, chest and throat and had been dead for less than 24 hours. They weren’t carrying any identification and their identities remain unidentified more than three decades later.

They had no money on them when their bodies were discovered but they seemed well to do. Their skin was smooth and had olive undertone making them look as possibly from another country than USA which would explain the reason why no-one local has come forward. The pair may have been hitchhiking through the country. It has been speculated that they might be brother and sister. Any money could have been stolen from the unknown killer.

The couple were buried laying besides each other  in August 1977 in Bethel (SC) United Methodist Church cemetery under two bronze plaques reading: “Male Unknown, Aug. 9, 1976” and “Female unknown, Aug. 9, 1976”.

John Doe was wearing a red T-shirt with “Coors America’s Fine Light Beer” written on the front and “Camel Challenger GT Sebring 75” on the back, faded Levi’s blue jeans and didn’t have any underwear on. He wore a Bulova Accutron yellow gold watch, serial number H918803 on his left wrist and a 14 karat gold ring with a gray linde star stone and the initials JPF engraved inside. He also had a box of Grants Truck stop matches in one of his pocket.

When found, Jane Doe was wearing an unbleached muslin blouse, a pink knit halter top that tied in the front, cut-off Levi blue jean shorts and a pair of wedge-heeled sandals with lavender, pink and purple straps. She had no underwear on. She was wearing three silver rings resembling American Indian or Mexican costume jewelry. One had red, white and blue stones, another a feather scroll with rust and green stone an and the third was oblong black stone with three green flecks.

New Reconstruction of Pasco County John Doe Found Murdered Over 23 Years Ago

experts

Reconstruction of murdered man found in Dade City, Florida in the Winter of ’89

11/06/12, DADE CITY, FLORIDA  — Forensics experts from University of South Florida have teamed up with the Pasco County Sheriff’s office to recreate the face of an unidentified “John Doe” who was located deceased near an orange grove in the Winter of 1989. The reconstruction of this individual is fairly new despite the fact that his identity has remained unknown for over twenty-three years.

The remains of ‘John Doe’ were found on January 24, 1989 by an artifact hunter in Dade City, FL and authorities believe he may have been dead for up to two years prior to his discovery. According to Pasco County Police, he had been shot twice in the head and when his skeletal remains were discovered he was nothing more than bones and clothes, weathered by years in the open field.

Shoes: Together, they have been able to ascertain that John Doe was a white male between 30 and 50 Years old. He was 5'7

John Doe was wearing cowboy boots (pictured above) when he was discovered in an open field near an orange grove.

He is described as a Caucasian adult male between the ages of 30 and 50 Years old, 5’7” inches tall with long    auburn hair. He also had several tattoos which included a Confederate flag, a Nazi symbol and the initials HFD and had a pair of brown Givenchy glasses on him. 

He was wearing a ‘Black Hills of South Dakota’ sleeveless shirt with a Native American picture on the back Indian on back and wore weathered light brown cowboy boots with mismatched socks, one of the socks were white with red stripes and the other was grey with blue strips.

He was found wearing blue mechanic-type pants with the name RANDY labelled on it, which could be a big clue in identifying him.

‘We’re really looking for the public’s involvement in this case because that’s what’s going to solve it,’ Detective David Boyer from the Pasco County Police Department.

‘There’s somebody out there that once they see this photo, it’s going to bring back some memories,’ Pasco Sheriff Nocco said. ‘Somebody knows something out there.’

SOLVED: Jane Doe Discovered In 1985 Is NC Woman Who Disappeared Ten Years Earlier

  • Priscilla Blevins, 27, of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, last seen in 1975
  • Detective knocked on sister’s door last month and said she’d been found
  • Turns out woman spent more than 20 years locked away in storage facility
  • Skeletal remains found in 1985 near a N.C. main road but could not be identified

‘It was equal parts of relief, surprise, sorrow and joy at the opportunity to finally bring my sister home’

Cathy Blevins Howe, 
Priscilla Blevins’s sister

 

Every day for the past 37 years, Cathy Blevins Howe has wondered about the whereabouts of her 27-year-old sister, who vanished from her Charlotte, N.C., home in July 1975.

Howe had long accepted that her sister, Priscilla Ann Blevins, was likely dead, but was afraid she might go to her own grave without the opportunity to say goodbye. The reality of that fear deepened when her parents, Bob and Sadie Blevins, died in 2002 and 2001, respectively.

The waiting and the fear finally came to an end last month, when the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department contacted Howe and said her sister’s remains had been found at the state medical examiner’s office in Chapel Hill. The remains, initially identified as “Jane Doe,” had been in storage at the facility for more than 20 years.

“It was just unbelievable and it still is,” Howe told The Huffington Post. “It was equal parts of relief, surprise, sorrow and joy at the opportunity to finally bring my sister home.”

Authorities had been trying to uncover Jane Doe’s identity since 1985, when she was found off Interstate 40 in Haywood County near the Tennessee border. Unfortunately, there were no identifying characteristics and the technology at their disposal was limited.

The mystery of Priscilla Blevins’ disappearance began July 7, 1975. Blevins was last seen by her roommate on that date at their home in the 1700 block of Tyvola Road in Charlotte.

“I wish I knew the circumstances,” Howe said. “She simply disappeared.”

 

The search for Blevins started immediately after her disappearance, but the case quickly went cold. Detectives had little evidence and few clues to follow.

 

“I got involved in 2000,” said Howe, who was 23 and in college when her sister disappeared. “My parents had originally spearheaded the investigation, but as I got older and had a daughter myself, I felt the need to try again. I got associated with Detective Lee Tuttle of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, and he was very receptive to and interested in pursuing what, for all intents and purposes, should have been considered an almost impossible case.”

 

With the advent of DNA databases for missing and unidentified persons, Tuttle collected a mitochondrial DNA sample from Howe. The sample was entered into the national database and they waited for a potential match.

 

On Oct. 18, Tuttle was notified that remains recently entered into the database — the Jane Doe found off Interstate 40 in 1985 — were a match. They then confirmed the results with Blevins’ dental records.

 

Howe said she has been told that an autopsy was performed on her sister, but she does not know the results. She also said she does not know whether authorities have listed her sister’s death as foul play, but she said she would not be surprised if they did, given the circumstances.

 

“The missing person case has been solved — she has been identified after having been missing for 37 years — but there are plenty of questions that remain unanswered,” Howe said. “But right now my focus is on bringing her home.”

 

Detective Lee Tuttle, the lead investigator on the case, whom Howe refers to as her “hero,” did not immediately return a call for comment from HuffPost.

 

Howe said she is planning a “memorial homecoming” for her sister on Nov. 17 in Wait Chapel at Wake Forest University. Blevins graduated from the university in 1971 and before her disappearance, taught English in South America.

 

“I just feel so honored that I get to welcome my sister home. What a blessing it is,” Howe said.

 

Meanwhile, Howe said she has advice for other families of the missing.

 

“It is my hope that this tragedy for our family can somehow serve as a vehicle to let other folks know that miracles do happen and there is technology available,” she said. “If your missing loved one is not in the DNA database, they need to get in there. It worked a miracle in my life and my family’s life.”

Howe added, “I hope all the folks whose lives are touched with an event like this will have the opportunity to bring their loved one home.”

Child Molester Wanted By The FBI

Child Molester Wanted By The FBI

Published: October 9th, 2012 – Updated: October 11th, 2012 – HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Honolulu is seeking the public’s help in providing information that may identify a man suspected of child sexual exploitation. Agents believe the man could be on the Big Island.

The suspect first came to the FBI’s attention in 2010 when a series of photographs surfaced on the internet depicting the suspect apparently engaging in graphic sex acts with two children: a four-year-old girl and nine-year-old boy (approximate ages).

These photos were circulated widely among various illegal internet forums for the sharing of child pornography.

Investigators for the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children enhanced one of the photos to develop an image of what appears to be a 2008 Hawaiian Telcom phone book for Hawaii’s Big Island in the background. This image led investigators to believe that the photos were taken between 2008 and 2010. A desktop computer in the background of another photo leads investigators to conclude that the photo was likely not taken in a hotel room.

There are no other details linking the suspect to Hawaii. His identity and current whereabouts are unknown.

The pictured suspect appears to be a white male in his 40s with brown-grey hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information to provide should contact their local FBI office.

“We’re comfortable saying that the suspect was probably on Hawaii’s Big Island between 2008 and 2010. He may have lived there, or he may have been a guest in someone’s home. For all we know, he may still be living in Hawaii,” said Honolulu FBI Special Agent Tom Simon. “Sadly, the FBI catches a lot of consumers and distributors of child pornography. This case is a rare opportunity for us to catch an actual producer of these disturbing images.”

The public is reminded that no charges have been filed in this case and the pictured suspect is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
