    FL - Altoona (Lake Dorr), WhtFem 126UFFL, 17-20, "Here Comes Trouble" TShirt, Apr'84

    She had reddish brown hair and weighed about 100 pounds.

    Her petite frame was dressed in a black T-shirt with "Here Comes Trouble" on the front and a nightshirt with "Have You Kissed Your Child Tonite?"

    For 21 years, no one has known her name, why she was slain and who left her in the Ocala National Forest near Lake Dorr north of Umatilla.

    Lake County investigators suspect an admitted serial killer serving life in an Arkansas prison may know something about the case.

    But Michael Ronning, 48, isn't talking.

    The case goes back to April 18, 1984, when a man found the woman's remains in the Lake Dorr recreation area in the national forest. She had been dead for two to four weeks, and animals had scattered her remains.

    A break in the case came almost 18 years later when the news show Dateline NBC did a story about Ronning in February 2002.

    In Dateline's research, the producers found a traffic ticket that was issued April 17, 1984, to Ronning by Umatilla police for not having a valid drivers license. The show alerted Lake detectives about its findings and asked if they had any unsolved homicides.

    That's when Lake County investigators first heard about Ronning and began investigating.

    Thanks PT, that was quick!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I'm not at all happy with this match... Leslie is 3" taller, 4 years older was from California, and abducted in January... if it is her, maybe someone else abducted her, kept her for a bit, then brought her to Florida? ...or not

    Ok I have problems with this match too. Terrie is 3" taller, she was possibly travelling to Louisianna... so Florida is not that far off. It doesn't leave much time though between the disappearance on April 1st and finding the body April 14th - it this is Terrie she would have had to have been killed almost immediately.

    Jane Doe doesn't have any mention of a chipped tooth (although she may have one but its just not mentioned). Finally Terrie is listed as a Blonde, but both photos on the Doe Network show DARK hair??????

    I have some trouble with the lips and chin on the reconstruction number 2. They just don't look right. I wonder if the calculations were correct on that.

    Joyce was last seen in January, which gives her lots of time to go to Florida from California. She's 1 year older than the estimate, and 3 inches taller. There is no mention of a tattoo on Jane Doe, unfortunately it may have been on a part of the body that was no longer visible.

    Although it is a really bad photo of Joyce it does match the sketch really well.

    Wow, that sketch is almost a dead ringer for McDowell. The only difference I see is the lips. And like I said, I don't think in the reconstruct that the lips look right, like maybe the calculations are a bit off. It is less noticable in the sketch.

    I have trouble with the sketch and reconstruction too.... both representations show someone much older than the estimated 17-20 age.

    Lisa Marie would have been 17 years old in 1984. She is listed as having red hair - so the reddish brown description for Jane Doe matches. I think the faces really match. Problem is Lisa Marie is listed as 5'8" which is 6 inches taller than Jane Doe!

    Sally was last seen in February so she'd have enough time to travel to Florida, from California. She's 6 years older than the estimated age, and 2" taller.

    It might just be the photo of Kimberley but I thought she looked a lot like the sketch. She disappeared a full year before though. She is 1" shorter and two years older than the estimated age. Also she would have had to travel from Maryland to Florida.

    The fact that she was dressed in a t shirt and nightshirt is a little confusing.
    But the night shirt makes me think she was either abducted from home at night, or she was homeless.
    Ronnings pattern seems to have been to abduct the women and take them back to his "comfort zone" somewhere in the woods near his homes. There isn't enough info in the article to show any patterns about where he abducts them. The article posted in the crime news may show more. I will check it.

    Melissa Jackson, 16, who disappeared from a Grand Prairie apartment building in Aug. 12, 1983.
    http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont....10c08aa3.html
    No mention on the others, of where he abducted them from. I would guess though that since his pattern of dumping is so strong, that probably his pattern of abduction would also be similiar.

    Josephine fits the profile almost exactly.... except she disappeared from Oklahoma 6 months before Jane Doe was found in Florida.
