There's just something about Pollyanne Jean Carter's eyes that made me think of this UID... Pollyanne would have been 22 in 1991, and I don't think she could have grown 6 inches after age 16, though.
Pollyanne Jean Carter
Virginia Beach Police Department did a news story today on Jane Doe in the local Paper. I am so proud of Det. Murphy and Det. Lokey and Srgt. Phillips for this. We are all determined to solve her case. Also thanking Florida and OSBI for their help.
The Virginia Beach Police decided to try to help identify Eldorado Jane Doe. Thanks to the Virginia Beach Missing Person Unit. Angie and Kevin!!! Thanks also to Florida and OSBI!!!
Many leads are rolling in. Fingers crossed.
Here's to a resolution
I have a question about the pre-mortem pics of our jane doe. Does anyone know if they're cropped to only show her? I wonder if there might be anything in the background like a newspaper, or lic. plates, or regional food packaging, that might help to narrow down where they were taken.
Also, and pardon me if this is off the wall, but she's 5'11". Most girls that tall i've known have said they were that tall at a very young age. There was a 6' tall girl I went to school with, that was taller than everyone, including the boys, in 7th grade. So If she was still in school past 12-13 years old, maybe she played basketball or volleyball? Could her picture be circulated around southern high schools, or even mailed to retired gym teachers?
This is a reminder that El Dorado Doe's listed height is 5'11". Please note also El Dorado, AR post- mortem had her listed as being 6 feet tall.
Most likely this doe would have been around 5'9" or 5'10" at age 15. She would have been taller than most if not all of her female and male classmates during elementary school and junior high.
Even in high school she would have been taller than most students, and most probably the tallest girl in her class.
OK, follow me here: I think we are going about this all wrong, McAlphin said in a jailhouse interview that he took her to CA to visit her mother and sister not too long before she died ( also in her journal it said Gail wanted to go back to CA) so maybe Ca is a better starting point than Flordia, I read somewhere they did hair analysis and it said she had spent quite sometime in CA prevously to the east coast, therefore she would not have been reported missing untill aftter 1991 (if reported at all) he also said he was not reveling her identity becaues that what she would have wanted, she would not have wanted her mother to know, so who knows if she were reported at all or how often she kept in touch with her family soooooo, it might be possible that she was not even reported missing untill after 95 or later hmmmmmmm!
Everything about this case is so strange.
They think she's been on the run since her early teens, right? With her height, she probably looked like a grown woman when she was 16 or so, so she could have been a sex worker for her entire adult life, which would mean she came into contact with a lot of people.
Considering what we know about her lifestyle, it wouldn't be a huge leap to guess she may have been in the child welfare system wherever she came from, so maybe she didn't know her blood relatives, and her mother could be dead or incarcerated.
Also, a question: Does anybody know if they cross-reference UID DNA with with the convicted felon database? In other words, If I was a felon, and I had a relative who was a UID, they could say, "whoever she is, this is her sibling". Again, it wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility that her parents or any siblings might have had contact with the criminal justice system.
This case baffles me. How is it no one remembers a 6 foot tall good-looking blonde?
So were're pretty sure she spent her childhood in CA? That would narrow things down quite a bit.

That could be why we havent been able to match her up with someone missing from Fl
Some people may consider me crazy, I say I'm just inspired.
I noticed that Winnie Janette Kersey who went missing from Jacksonville, FL on December 3, 1982 is tall (5'9") with blonde hair and blue eyes. She might be too old to be the unidentified woman from Eldorado (but I really think she looks older than the estimates).
Its too bad the photo of her is so unclear.
Is it just me, or do some of these pics of this chick really look a lot like Brittany Spears at the beginning of her career way back in 1998ish? Specifically the 1st and 5th on the doenetwork page?
Kimberly Kahler has been missing at age 15 since January 1, 1980 from Venice, Los Angeles, California. Any results back from her DNA comparison with Jane?
