These are three seperate composite sketches which were created by different artist to give an idea of what the unidentified Jane Doe may have looked like alive. Both sketches are an approximate description based on the deceased victim’s physical features and shouldn’t be used as the sole basis of identifying the victim.
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.
