CA - Healdsburg, WhtFem 961UFCA, 29-39, in Foss Creek, Jan'83
Finally got info on the Jane Doe from 1983.
Healdsburg Police, the Local LE never heard of Namus!
NOT ON NAMUS/Doe
Healdsburg Jane Doe
Age 34 +/- 5 years
5'4" +/- 3"
Based on the article, below, the body was NOT skeletanized, so the DofD had to have been fairly recent.
.....Then-Lt. Joe Palla, now chief of the Santa Rosa Junior College's police department, said at the time that the body appeared to be that of a white, slender and slightly built adult female."
The woman had been wearing denim pants and on one foot wore a black sock and a soft-soled shoe, according to the reports. Police said the body may have been deposited upstream and dislodged by recent rains."
This is all the info that i have, sorry.

02-15-2012, 04:03 PM #3On Jan. 24, 1983, a gardener found a headless and partly decomposed body of an adult woman in Foss Creek behind Simi Winery
the body appeared to be that of a white, slender and slightly built adult female.
Her DNA was uploaded into state and national databases that collect samples from people arrested on suspicion of felony crimes and possibly other databases, Burke said. Investigators hope a DNA sample from one of her relatives might be in the system and come up as a partial match, Burke said.__________________________________

Healdsburg Police Refer 1983 'Jane Doe' Remains for Advanced DNA Testing

Body found near Foss Creek still being probed for link to accused serial killer Joseph Naso.
04-27-2012, 07:35 PM #5Young said the publicity resulted in at least one lead. A woman from out of state contacted police and said her sister went missing at roughly the same time.
However, Young said this week that Healdsburg detectives working with forensics concluded that the woman's sister "was not a match," Young said. "The timeline was off."
It's strange that they mention only one possible. I wonder if Cheryl Carter (mentioned above) is even on their radar.
I'll call the detective up Monday, just to be sure. I just tried a few minutes ago, and he's gone for the weekend.

I am trying to turn up the heat, with a few well placed comments publicly placed on appropriate sites, to get this gal, and the unid' "Santa Rosa Hitchhiker" seventh victim entered into Namus/Doe.
I personally submitted the info on the Healdsburg Jane Doe, recently to the Doe Network. I hope against hope they enter her info. I do not believe that I have enough info on SR Jane Doe to get her entered.
I mentioned Cheryl Lynn Carter, and was treated like I am a moron. Oh, ya, ya, we looked at her. This is AFTER i was informed that NO ONE in the dept was familiar with Namus. As there are differing submissions on Doe/Namus, if they are unfamiliar with one database, they should not be rude to the volunteers, who are trying to assist.
It is bad enough that they failed to enter the info, for public purview.
Whats even more negligent, as far as I am concerned, is that NO ID'ing info has ever been presented to the public. I had to call twice, and the Invest. Officer, had to ask PERMISSION from the Chief to give me a description of Jane!
Have they stated publicly approx when the DOD is? I don't recall seeing it. I know that she was partially decomposed. She was found in the winter, Here that is rainy season. I checked the weather for Santa Rosa, for the week prior to her discovery. (No hx for Heald, that year) and we had over ONE INCH of rain b/w Jan 17-23. Our microclimates here, cause Heald to typically get more rain than SR. This rainy season, Heald has more than 3 in" over SR. Based on this, she could not have been there for very long, if she were only partially decomposed.
Carl, Nick Castenada is the cop that was assigned to the case, when I called
Good luck..... And, ask why they haven't added her to Namus, after repeated requests, Carl.
Maureen Russell Baca also fits the J D.

I guess that's me they are talking about.I did talk with them.I believe they told me this Jane Doe was found before my sister came up missing.He said several months before.I can't believe I would be the only lead though.That's sad.ALL EVIL NEEDS TO SUCCEED IS FOR GOOD PEOPLE TO DO NOTHING!!!!

I got a call from Det. Nick Castaneda. He was very polite, and said that they had ruled out Cheryl Carter twice in the past based on dental records. But after receiving my message he looked again and saw other details (which he didn't specify) that have convinced him that he should take a third look.
He says that they don't have a DNA profile yet for Cheryl. But he is going to take advantage of other technologies that they haven't yet utilized.

I got another call from Det. Castaneda. He says after a third look, they are certain that this is not Cheryl Carter.
