    FL - St Petersburg, WhtFem, 14-17, pushed into traffic, Jun'73 - Janice Young

    I'm sorry if this has already been discussed. I tried to search to see, but could not find anything already posted on it. This is a 14 to 17 year old female that went by the name Janice Brock, but obviously that's not her real name. She was believed to be a runaway. She was pushed in front of a moving car by a guy and died at the scene. No one has ever identified her. Does anyone know about this case? I was just curious.

    Were witnesses able to describe the man? I wonder if maybe she was involved in prostitution and he was the pimp. It is so sad when you have a young person that no one claims.

    FL Jane Doe 6/9/73

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/381uffl.html
    On June 9, 1973, this unidentified child was pushed in front of a moving vehicle in St. Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida, and died at the scene, at 11 Avenue & 8 Street S. in St. Petersburg. According to witnesses, she was involved in an altercation with a black male prior to being pushed into the path of the vehicle.
    She was new to the area, and was believed to have been a runaway from an unknown location. She had been living in the area for a few weeks prior to death and was believed to be a runaway associated with drug related activity.

    New info found.

    First of all, she had another alias, Janice Marie Bromke.
    Also, she may have been from Virginia or NC. I think she was from Cherry Hill,NJ and I will explain why in a minute.

    A 24 yo man named Lawrence was charged in her death right after the incident.

    http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...=janice+bromke

    I believe this is the same Lawrence (teddy)
    http://www.sptimes.com/2002/05/12/So...s_north_.shtml

    Found him on knowx marrying this Katie.

    Dont know if he was convicted.

    Anyways, so I ran Janice Bromke. First of all there are only 9 Bromke's on ssdi. Not a common name.

    Well it seems that there was a Dorothy born 1923 died 1997, google news shows she has a daughter named Janice listed but it doesnt show where she is. Dorothy was married to Bruno he died in 1996. Bruno had a son named (suprise) Bruno, who was a doctor and died suddenly in 2003 at age 58, he has a daughter named Janice who lives in NY, I have her married name dont want to print it here.
    SO..... I believe that Janice Marie Bronke is our Janice and that her brother Bruno named his daughter after his sister.
    I also believe that this was a prominent family and the stigmatism that Janice ran away made them refrain from persuing her missing.
    Also, I have found that alot of info is missing on many of our cold cases that I looked up on this google news website. I am not sure why this name was omited and if this is Bruno and Dorothy's daughter it makes me sad that they have passed on as has the possible brother.

    I think you are right on with this. I agree with you that Bromke is likely her real name.
    Have you contacted anyone?

    No, do you think I should contact St Pete police with this? Or do you think I should contact this relative on myspace first or at all ??

    I sent a message on my space to the direct cousin of this family that I found. Would like to see if there was a Janice Bromke missing in her family back in the 70's before I contact LE.

    No,

    She hasn't been logged in since Oct 22.

    Hope she checks her myspace soon, I am really anxious to know but on the other hand if this is a relative it will be sad news for the family.

    I clicked on the link in the OP and it brought up a home page for doe.us. Was there a picture of the UID?

    Doenetwork changed it's website address sometime ago and got rid of the .net and replaced it with .org.

    Here is the correct link
