    IL - Chicago, BlkFem 276UFIL, 20-30, in South Side alley, pink bodysuit, May'94

    I found a postmortem photo for this UID in Porchlight. I noticed that she is not listed in NamUs, and there has been no discussion of her case here. The recon in DoeNet wasn't that great IMO, so I did my own reconstruction and am putting the case up here for discussion:

    Note that the description mentions one tooth missing and one with a gold overlay. It doesn't indicate which teeth are missing/overlaid, and the postmortem view of the teeth isn't that clear. So her teeth are depicted as best as I can see from the PM photo.


    The Doe Network:

    Sketch of Victim

    (I posted a link to the PM photo here from my Webshots account, but Webshots removed the photo due to offensive content)

    Unidentified Black Female

    Discovered on May 25, 1994 in Chicago, Illinois.
    Cause of death was homicide

    Vital Statistics

    Estimated age: 20 - 30 years old
    Approximate Height and Weight: 5'0"; 115 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Shoulder length black hair, worn in a ponytail. Medium complexion. She had 2 piercings in each ear but no jewelry. She had a 6 inch scar on her abdomen with stretch marks which indicates a possible pregnancy.
    Dentals: She had 1 missing tooth and 1 tooth w a gold overlay. Dentals are available.
    Clothing: She was found naked from the waist down except for 1 sock. She was wearing a pink body suit and a black bra. She wore a black ribbon in the hair.

    Case History
    The victim was found in the alley at 4837 S. Champlain. An offender, who has been charged with her murder, alleged that the victim was working as a prostitute when he picked her up at 63rd & Kimbark.

    I'm not even going to post the details because all of the circumstances seem so wrong, wrong, wrong! (Assuming that her image portrayed in her bio is correct and the killer of the UID is telling the truth).

    Dates fit. Ponytail fits etc. 600 miles away.

    Nose does not fit in some pictures, but does in others....

    I'm 99% sure this is a no, but it has too many little things for me to dismiss it completely. Looking for comments - see what I've done on the attached images.

    Post mortem photo has gone so I would appreciate it Carl if you could take a better look if you still have the picture.

    I see some resemblance but if Cleashindra Hall's photos her hair is shorter than what I would call shoulder length but who knows how recent they were.

    If they were able to see stretch marks and an abdominal scar on Jane Doe it would seem that they'd have been able to see the knee scar that Cleashindra Hall had but it is not mentioned.

    Another brilliant reconstruction Carl.

    Praying for this young woman who lost her life, and identity.
    Heaven must prove to be a kinder place than she found here on earth.

    Her post-mortem photo is still on Porchlight (fourth photo down):

    ** WARNING: Multiple Post-Mortem Photos in Thread**
    http://z10.invisionfree.com/usedtobe...showtopic=1942

    There's a full eight-inch height difference between the UID and MP, but both of them have a dark spot above their right eyebrows (their left when you look at their photo.) Do you think that's a bruise on the UID?

    Photo of MP that shows the dark spot: http://z10.invisionfree.com/usedtobe...st&id=11177763

    Wow Carl....after looking at the post mortem pic I have to say your rendering of the deceased is absolutely amazing! Such a gift. God Bless this girl.

    This Jane Doe now has a NamUs casefile:

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/12976

    I am wondering if her death might be connected to Darren Deon Vann, who operated primarily in Gary Indiana, which is not far from the south side of Chicago.

    I thought of a possible connection to Darren Vann, too. However, the Doe Network says that somebody has been charged with her murder and he claims she was a prostitute. http://doenetwork.org/cases/276ufil.html

    The victim was found in the alley at 4837 S. Champlain. An offender, who has been charged with her murder, alleged that the victim was working as a prostitute when he picked her up at 63rd & Kimbark.
    BTW, Thanks for the excellent reconstruction, CarlK!

    Cleashindra Hall has been ruled out. It says on her namus page.

    Just based on her morgue photo I noticed that she looked similar to Sharon Hart-Wills. She went missing in 1987 and she was 24 at the time. Her height is off by 4 inches and her age is on the older side of Jane Doe's estimated age but I though that Id post this anyway.
    Here is a side by side picture.

    In the NamUs postmorten photo she looks soooo young...

    Looks like the man initially charged with her murder is Gregory Clepper - http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1...s/9605020261_1
    http://murderpedia.org/male.C/c/clepper-gregory.htm

    Then, in 2000 it turned out that the confession was false? And then they arrested Earl Mack Jr. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2...n-bond-hearing He later plead guilty.

    Collette looks likely. Side by side of Collette with Carl's reconstruction.
