“All that shows us is that she doesn’t have a criminal record,” he said.
Cameron said that a social worker is assigned to her at the hospital and if at any time there is any change, they will immediately notify him.
Although the SCSO has received hundreds of calls and emails from people who think they might know the identity of Jane Doe, none of the leads have panned out, Cameron explained.
(UPDATE: 6:23 p.m. 8/03/2012) SUWANNEE CO., Fla. (WTXL)–A local effort to place a name on an unidentified woman, called “Jane Doe”, found lying by the side of a Suwannee County Road has drawn response from around the world.
The woman was found July 16 by the side of 153rd Road, which is just off Highway 90, last month. Authorities are not releasing many details about Jane Doe, investigators say she doesn’t seem to have a criminal history. They think if she was from around the local area, she would’ve already been identified.
They have received about 200 leads from as far away as Alaska, but none have panned out so far. Local citizens are joining the effort and doing their own investigating.
“This could be my child,” said Lynda Rebel. “This could be my sister. I’d want to know who she was.”
Rebel started a Facebook group Suwannee County Fl. “Jane Doe: Help Us Identify” to assist the search. Now she says it’s gone viral, gaining interest from people around the world wanting to help.
“We’re just spreading the word,” said Rebel. “We’ve had plenty of people doing research.”
She says tattoo artists have even weighed in on the conversation, discussing all of Jane Doe’s tattoos, including one affiliated with hardcore hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse.
“Most tattoo artists will not repeat a tattoo,” said Beth Beaver, another Suwannee County woman joining the effort. “They’ll take one small detail to make it different to make it theirs so until you find the tattoo artist who did it it’s really hard to say.”
People in the Facebook group have searched missing persons databases and enhanced the photo of her face to remove the bruising.
The two women vow to not give up in their fight to find out who “Jane Doe” really is.
SUWANNEE COUNTY – A candlelight vigil is planned for an unidentified woman, called “Jane Doe” that was found on the side of a Suwannee County Road.
The real name of the woman found roadside in Live Oak is still unknown nearly a month after she was discovered on the side of 153rd Road by Suwannee County deputies. She was found on Monday, July 16. Deputies say she had a head injury that came as the result of blunt force trauma when she was discovered. “Jane Doe” is now in a medically induced coma at Shands Hospital in Gainesville.
The vigil is planned for Monday, August 6 at 7:30 p.m. It will be in front of the Suwannee Courthouse.
We spoke with an organizer of the event, Beth Beaver, who hopes people in surrounding counties and across the nation gather to hold vigils of their own at that time, or just send up a prayer for “Jane Doe” if they can’t make an organized event.
Deputies are also asking for the public’s help. They ask that the public contact them if they know any information about the woman. They’ve released flyers and pictures of the woman’s face and tattoos, which can be seen in the slide-show to the right or on the downloadable flyer above. We warn you that they both contain a picture some may consider graphic in nature.
The woman is white and appears to be 20-35 years old. She is about 5’5″ tall and 130 pounds. She has brown hair, blue eyes, and was discovered wearing a Grateful Dead t-shirt and no shoes.
Investigators ran her fingerprints through Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, or IAFIS, which is a national fingerprint and criminal history system. No positive matches were found. They are still awaiting results from another fingerprint database.

Please post a photo or description of this young woman on your Facebook wall or any website. Hopefully getting her face out there will get answers. I personally don’t believe she’s from Florida. Just my guess – I assume if she was, someone would have reconized her already. I’m sure this has been on the news all threw out Florida. I haven’t seen it on the local news in my State. Someone has to know this young woman.
