On July 31, 1991 the badly decomposed body of a young female was discovered at the bottom of an embankment along southbound Interstate 270 at the Baker Valley Road overpass in Frederick County, Maryland. Medical Examiners believe the victim may have been at this location up to 1-2 weeks prior to discovery. The disposal site was within 10 miles of a truck stop. Due to decomposition, Medical Examiners weren’t able to confirm the cause of death.

Although it’s been over two decades since the discovery, a candlelight vigil was held recently in the past couple years to remember the victim without an identity.

“To this day — and we’re celebrating 20 years — we have no idea who she is,” Maryland State Police Sgt. Tina Becker said on the 20th anniversary on July 31, 2011.

The Cold Case Unit officer said that the chance of determining what happened to the Jane Doe is zero to none; the girl, estimated to be in her late teens or early 20s at the time of her death, had no identification.

It’s been over 22 years since the discovery and authorities are hoping someone has that small piece of the puzzle that they are missing.

Do You Know The Identity Of This Child Who Was Found Deceased Over 14 Years Ago?

These two composite sketches were created earlier in the investigation. Both were created based on the description given and shouldn’t be the sole identifying factor.

orange-county-unidentified-childThis composite sketch was created by a FBI artist who sculpted a face of what they think “John Mebane Doe” looked like.

Description of “John Mebane Doe”
Location: 
Found in Mebane, Orange County, NC
Race: 
White or possibly Hispanic
Sex: 
Male
Hair: 
Patches of dark brown hair could be seen near the skull
Height/Weight: 
Believed to have been around 4’11” tall, weighing approximately 50 pounds
Estimated Age: 
Medical examiners believe he was between 8 to 11 years old.
Estimated Time of Death: 
It is believed that he has been deceased sometime in the Spring or Summer of 1998
Clothing: 
Partially clothed wearing a pair of underwear, khaki shorts, black and white sneakers and white socks

Note: Keep in mind that the estimated age, height, weight, race, etc, are approximations and could be slightly inaccurate. The height might be a couple of inches off as well as the weight. The actual age might be a year younger (7) or a year older (12).

On the afternoon of September 25, 1998 a crew were mowing grass around a billboard off of Industrial Drive in Mebane, North Carolina, approximately 70 yards from Interstate 40. One crew member noticed something lying near the edge of the wooded area and upon further inspection he realized it was the deceased body of an unidentified child. The child, a boy, was partially clothed and had a $50 dollar bill tucked away in his pocket.

It’s been fourteen years since that Summer day yet nobody has come forward with an identity or to claim the remains.

Investigators from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office dubbed the little boy, “John Mebane Doe”.

The death was ruled undetermined but probable homicide. His legs were together and the arms were slightly extended above the head. Police believe the child died somewhere else and was later brought to the location where he was found.

“The bones were not as you might envision, all connected. Things had disarticulated and fallen away,” explained Tim Horn, an investigator from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators have been working on this case for over a decade. They’ve passed the story on to local media, Doe Network as well as other online databases, checked schools, churches, the national database for missing children, etc, but have so far turned up empty. Surely someone knows this boy or at least met him sometime during his childhood. Theres a good possibility that he is from out of State, maybe even out of the US. However, until his identity is known he will remain in a small box at the Chapel Hill’s Medical Examiners Office.

John Mebane Doe would be in his twenties today had he still been alive. Do you know somebody from your childhood who matches the description and suddenly went missing?

Philadelphia Couple Vanished Eight Years Ago Today After The Two Were Seen Leaving Abilene’s Bar

It’s been eight years since Danielle Imbo and Richard Petrone mysteriously vanished and police remain dumbfounded.

Danielle, then 34, had known Richard, then 35, since the two were teenagers. Though they had gone to different high schools in New Jersey (she attended Cherry Hill High School East while he was at Bishop Eustace Prep in nearby Pennsauken) Danielle was good friends with Richard’s sister, Christine, and had a ”crush” on Richard but he had been so consumed with playing ice hockey at the time he hadn’t picked up on her interest. It wasn’t until much later that they rediscovered one another and became a couple, but by this time, Danielle had already been married and divorced to a man name “Joe Imbo”, who had threatened Richard a few times over the phone. According to police Joe isn’t considered a suspect.

It was a chilly night February 19, 2005 when Richard Petrone and Danielle Imbo vanished along with the pick-up truck they were driving. The disappearance was, and still is, a true mystery. No phone calls to friends or family members, no ransom notes, no wreckage, no remains, nothing. After years of searching for the missing couple, the police say they have “zero physical evidence” despite extensive searches.

Richard’s 2001 four-door Dodge Dakota pickup has also never been located. The missing couple’s credit cards and ATM cards have not been used since they walked out of Abilene’s that night. There has been no activity on either of their cellphones. Surveillance cameras that routinely record transactions at ATM machines showed no signs of either of them. Video cameras at highway toll plazas and river crossings have no record of Richard’s truck passing through that night. It’s as if they vanished into thin air.

“Not a lipstick, not a bag, not a shoe, not a car, not an eyewitness, not a tip, not anything,” Danielle’s brother, John Ottobre said.

They were last seen at Abilene’s bar and restaurant on South Street in Philadelphia, and Richard’s best friend Rick Bellezzi stated that the couple “left the club happy at about 11:45pm.” 

Many who knew the two of them stated they were NOT the type to leave without an explanation. They were very happy with there lives and all they had left behind and just wouldn’t walk away from friends and family like that.

Authorities in Philadelphia and New Jersey as well as the FBI have continued to search for the couple eight years on but so far, have come up empty.

Danielle Imbo is an attractive brunette with hazel eyes and an infectious smile. Her friends agree that she’s “very smart” with a great ”personality and sense of humor.” One friend described her as a “very blunt” person, “a tell-it-like-it-is type of girl.” A few years before her disappearance, she sang in a rock band called the ”School Boys”, following in the footsteps of her late father, Johnny Ottobre, who in the 1950s had been the lead singer in a well-known doo-wop group called the ”Four Dates”. She has a tattoo on her lower back, a symbol of her astrological sign (Leo) inside a horseshoe of flowers.

She would be 42 years old today.

Richard Petrone has two tattoos. One is of a clown which is located on his right arm, the other is his daughter’s name (Angela) tattooed on his left arm. He is described as being ”good natured and jovial” He has a stocky, solid build. He has brown hair, blue eyes and usually wears a goatee or a sculpted full beard. Richard is also described as layed back type of guy who liked occasionally drinking beer with friends and relaxing after a long week, a good personality, someone who loved his family and friends too much to ever leave on his own accord.

He would be 43 years old today.

Richard and Danielle’s family miss them and want answers. Some fear the worst while others try to remain hopeful that one day they will get there loved ones back.

According to Sergeant Tim Cooney of the Philadelphia Police, “No one is a suspect and everyone is a subject of this investigation.”

A reward of $100,000 is being offered for any information that will lead to the whereabouts of Danielle Imbo and Richard Petrone.
