    I came across this and reminded me of this Jane Doe. but I don't know if they ever identified the victim in the article.. But the story sounds like what could of happened to this girl.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/archives/...ticle-1.806535


    A California couple is due in Bronx Supreme Court tomorrow to be arraigned in an unusual murder case that some cops see as long-overdue justice for an anonymous outcast. The killing took place 14 years ago, and the victim remains unidentified. The indictment charges the couple with second-degree murder of Jane Doe, a young woman who was thrown into the East River off Hunts Point. "I have been practicing law for 25 years, and this is the first time I've come across a Jane Doe [victim]," said defense lawyer Michael Torres, who was assigned to represent one of the defendants. "Nobody knows the true identity of this person, including my client," Torres said. "It's amazing after 14 years they were able to make an arrest on this matter.
    " Detectives have not given up trying to identify the victim.

    I'm looking at the family angle," said Lt. Steve Boldis of the cold case squad. "She was someone's daughter, niece, granddaughter. Someone has been wondering about her. After 14 years, I would love to be able to knock on someone's door and lay it to rest for them. It would be closure.
    " Police theorize the victim was killed because she resisted working in a prostitution ring in the Hunts Point area allegedly run by the defendants, Arthur Kinlaw, 44, and his wife, Donna, 39. The Kinlaws have criminal records in Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Texas. Donna Kinlaw was arrested numerous times for prostitution in the Bronx in the 1980s. The couple was arrested last November in Sonoma, Calif., in welfare fraud. Investigators checking their backgrounds developed information that the Kinlaws may have thrown a woman into the river in the South Bronx in the early 1980s. California authorities called the NYPD; Boldis and Detective Vincenti Nitti found a case to match the tip: A woman had been asphyxiated, bludgeoned, bound and gagged and was found floating in the East River on May 3, 1984. The victim was determined to be 18 to 25 years old, with dark brown hair, 5-feet-4, 130 pounds. The body had been in the water about two weeks and was not recognizable. Shortly after the body turned up, the Kinlaws left New York for Florida, Boldis said. They have traveled around the U.

    S. with their nine children. Cold case cops went to California to talk to the Kinlaws, and on June 19, they arrested them. They were extradited to New York. Cops believe the victim's first name was Linda, and that she came from Suffolk County. Boldis said the Kinlaws were known to have enlisted women from bars in Bay Shore and other towns in Suffolk as prostitutes. "Whatever she was doing maybe she was just a teen enjoying the bar scene and got caught up, maybe she worked for them and wanted to stop we have to put it to rest," Boldis said. He said cops plan to check Suffolk high school yearbooks, and he hopes a sketch of the short-haired, plain-featured woman will jar someone's memory. Anyone with information is asked to call (800) 577-TIPS.

    Definitely sounds possible. Maybe not a direct link to this couple, but this woman could've been working in a prostitution ring for years, decided that she wanted out and/or was going to expose the operation, and was murdered over it. It also could've been that she refused to start working in the ring, with the same outcome. Hopefully detectives are working to identify this Jane Doe as hard as they're working on the woman in that case.

    The chin implant implies resources or an auto accident. Cosmetic surgery is not always covered by insurance.

    Maybe we'll learn more from those defendants?

    I agree - seems like she was in a very bad auto accident; her healed injuries are more consistent with that than DV.
