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.

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.

Unidentified Teenager Found In Madison County On October 16, 1997

Unidentified White Female – Homicide Victim
AL_Jane_Doe_2AL_Jane_Doe_3AL_Jane_Doe

These sketches are computer-generated facial reconstruction done by a forensic artist at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children which were created based on the description of the victim. The photos should not be the main identifying factor.

•Estimated age: 15 – 19 years old
•Approximate Height and Weight: 4’10”- 5’1″ (147-155 cm)
•Distinguishing Characteristics: Shoulder length dark blond or light brown hair with a possible reddish tint. Her eye color and weight couldn’t be determined.
•Clothing: She may have been wearing a white with blue broad stripes casual, sleeveless top, size unknown, which was found near the skeletal remains outside of the plastic sheeting. No jewelry was recovered.

 

The skeletal remains of a murdered teenager were discovered on October 16, 1997, by a hunter in a remote wooded area in Huntsville in Madison County, Alabama, near Indian Creek Road, South of Kelly Spring Road.

Indian Creek Road is near a major roadway – Alabama Highway 53. The highway is a connector that runs between Huntsville, Alabama and Interstate 65 in Ardmore, Tennessee. So it’s possible the person responsible for the homicide came from another state and choose to the area at random, possibly knowing the area was discrete.

According to authorities, the victim’s body was wrapped in plastic sheeting commonly used in construction. The plastic was wrapped with gray duct tape.

The victim is believed to have been deceased for a period of up to 1 – 1 1/2 years before discovery. She was not wearing clothes when she was discovered. The body drifted down the creek, and washed onto the bank, and that’s when the teen was found by a hunter.

Murder Victim Discovered In An Arizona Desert On November 17, 2012

A composite sketch couldn’t be drawn because the victim’s remains were completely skeletal upon discovery.

Victim: Unidentified male
Date found: November 17, 2012 21:49
Location: Arivaca, Pima County, AZ

The murdered remains of an unidentified male were discovered on November 17, 2012 under a mesquite tree in a desert area east of Arivaca. His right hand and feet were not attached to his body nor were they ever located.

According to medical examiners the unidentified victim, also known as John Doe, was not recognizable because of near complete skeletal remains. They estimate his time of death occurring the same year of discovery (2012.)

The victim was wearing no clothing and had no identification on him and no one in Pima County, AZ has come forward to identify him. However, the area the deceased victim was located is known for migrant activity which gives the possibility that he wasn’t from the area, which would explain why nobody has come forward knowing who he is.

Description: Believed to be of Native American decent, between the ages 17 and 29 years. He stands roughly 5 feet 8 inches (61 in), weight  and eye color could not be determined due to decomposition. His hair color was unknown and it’s possible he was completely bald prior to his death.

Good identifying factor: The upper central incisors were winged (mesially rotated). This was likely noticeable to those who knew the victim. The lower third molars were missing before death and the upper third molars had not yet fully erupted. More information can be released by medical examiners, including DNA.

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.

Physical description: A young Caucasian female between 14-20 years of age with a thin frame. Eye color is unknown. When she was found she was wearing red nail polish on her right hand but no polish on her left, almost as if she started painting her nails but didn’t get to finish. Her left ear has two piercings, her right ear has an unknown amount of piercings.

Case Details:

Date Body Found: 07/15/82
Estimated Date of Death: 07/11/82
Estimated Age: 14 – 20 years (victim would be in her 40’s if she was still living today)

Hair: shoulder length brown hair

Weight: 90 – 100 pounds
Height: between 5’2” / 5’4”

Teeth: Lower anterior teeth are crowded (two of her front teeth were slightly darker than the rest of her teeth and her teeth also indicate she came from a middle-class background)

Clothing: A red V-neck pullover shirt with yellow piping on the front portion of the shoulder and blue and black piping around the neck, sleeves and waist. Victim was also wearing a red/white/blue print wrap-around skirt with a wide border print of peacocks on the lower portion.

Jewelry: A gold-colored chain with small white beads spaced evenly within the chain. Attached to the chain was a 14K gold cross with an ornate design.
