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.

An Oregon teenager attends a county fair and never returns home

NCMC600424c1

Pictured: Jeremy Doland Bright

On August 14, 1986 Jeremy Bright, then, 14, went to the Coos County Fair in Oregon, and vanished off the face of the earth.

Fast forward…

Jeremy grew up in Myrtle Point, OR and that’s where his family and friends lived, but when his parents separated he and his sister moved a hundred miles away to Grants Pass, where his mother worked and attended school.

Every Summer the Coos County Fair rolls into Myrtle Point, Oregon.  For many, it’s a weeklong celebration.  To 14-year-old Jeremy Bright and his 9-year-old sister S’te (pronounced “Ess-tee”),  it was one of the highlights of each year and they rarely missed it. Because distance would have been a problem, their stepfather, Orville “Ole” Gulseth of Myrtle Point, had offered to take them in for a week that summer but he would need to get approval from his mother, Diane Beatty, now 55.

Beatty said yes. Something she will regret for the next 25 years.

“He was here for a week during the fair,” said Beatty during a 2009 interview at her Eastside home as she pored over photos of her missing son from a time when Pac-Man and Van Halen were all the rage. “He was only here for a week. If I would have said, ‘No,’ about him coming up to the fair, I would still have him.”

“Instead of them veggin’ in Grants Pass for a week, while I worked and went to school, I thought that would be a great little trip for them,” “I have regretted it ever since.” said Beatty.

It was a Thursday on August 16, 1986 and Jeremy decided to bring his best friend, Johnny, with him to the fair. The two would go off while his little sister walked around the fair with their step-father.

Around 4:45pm., Jeremy made a long distance call to his mother to check in with her and to let her know that he was having a good time at the fair. She told Jeremy she’d be back in Myrtle Point in two days to pick him and his sister up.

Five hours later at 9:40 PM, Jeremy showed up at a local tavern owned by his grandmother.  There he met his stepfather and asked to borrow some money. It was the last time Jeremy was ever seen by his family.

Two days later, Diane arrived in Myrtle Point as planned.   She went to pick up Jeremy at his stepfather’s house, but her son never showed up:

“I went in and on the TV set was his house keys from our Grants Pass apartment and his wallet and his new watch that he told me he’d bought. I knew when I found those things that he was around somewhere because he wouldn’t leave without them.”

On Saturday night, Diane was worried enough to contact the police. At first, Sergeant Steve Dalton of the Coos County Sheriff’s Department believed Jeremy had simply run away:

“He did like the fair. There was the thought that perhaps he was hiding out, intending to leave with the fair people and I’ve explored that possibility in every way that I can think of. However in this particular case, I’ve talked to family members and friends of him that knew him well. And he was just not, from what I can learn, the type of kid who would have struck out on his own.”

On Sunday, August 17, 1986, the fair closed down. Myrtle Point was buzzing about Jeremy’s disappearance, and gradually, conflicting stories began to emerge. According to one rumor, Jeremy attended one of Myrtle Point’s many parties, and drank a beer laced with a powerful drug. Another story claimed that three older teenagers showed up at a local swimming hole and harassed Jeremy and his friends. According to Sergeant Dalton, this information came from a jailhouse informant:

“They subsequently took him to a cabin, maybe within ten miles of the Myrtle Point area, and attempted to nurse him back to health… he died as a result of that injury, either from loss of blood or from infection or what have you. That same source… indicated that his body would found within 200 feet of this cabin in a shallow grave.”

Police searched the area surrounding the cabin but found nothing. For Diane Bright, the rumors about her missing son were difficult to handle:

“All of them are hard to think about. Every time I’d hear a new one, I have nightmares for a week or so. The one that I hope is not what happened is one where he suffered for two weeks before he died and they buried his body, because the thought of him suffering for two weeks just makes me sick.”

Jeremy Bright has scars on his forehead and nose and a mole on his chin. The prime suspect in his disappearance recently died in prison, and there are no new leads. However the case is still open.

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.

U530018814 (Please refer to this number when contacting any agency with information regarding this case.)

What to do if Your Child is Missing

Act immediately if you believe your child is missing.

Download the Quick Reference Guide for Families in English or Spanish.

What to Do If Your Child is Missing:

  • If your child is missing, search the house checking closets, piles of laundry, in and under beds, inside large appliances, and inside vehicles, including trunks—wherever a child may crawl or hide.
  • If your child disappears in a store, notify the store manager or security office. Then immediately call your local law-enforcement agency. Many stores have a Code Adam plan of action— if a child is missing in the store, employees immediately mobilize to look for the missing child.
  • When you call law enforcement, provide your child’s name, date of birth, height, weight, and any other unique identifiers such as eyeglasses and braces. Tell them when you noticed that your child was missing and what clothing he or she was wearing.
