    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?

    KT:

    This looks real good to me. The scars match up perfectly, and there is a definately a resemblance between the JD and April. Have you turned it over to the Doe Network yet?

    At the bottom of the jane doe page there is a link to a postmortem photo, comparing that and april zanes pictures the noses and chin look similar but it is hard to tell b/c she was obvioulsy badly beaten

    I think this is an excellent possibility, KT Can! Wow. Good job... The descriptions/characteristics sure match up really well. Like 2sisters, I also compared April Rose Zane's photo with the postmortem photo. I agree that the condition of the face in the postmortem photo makes it difficult to see many similarities, but this is a potential match that the Doe Network and LE should definitely check out. Wow.

    I sure hope this leads to a resolved case!

    More than likely this has been looked into in the past. When I used to send in matches, I often would find that for each one that looks a high likely, they've already looked into it and have received 2-3 calls a month suggesting them...

    Never hurts to try, though, right? I wouldn't refrain from sending in a possible match on the basis that it was more than likely already done by someone else.

    There are definate similarities.....good work KT! Let us know what your hear...

    I hear ya...The one thing LEA absolutely hates is when sites aren't updated and people continually call about cases...There was a case in MD of a missing woman who was found dead years ago but not taken off a missing person site. She had a lot of similarities to a UNID in Texas. They got call after call about it...

    Did anyone else notice the similarity between the center hairline of April Zane and the hairline (again, in the center) of the post mortem doe photo? Some things never change on a person, and this would be one of those things. That really makes me wonder if this could indeed be the same person.

    I'd be willing to put some money on this one. It's hard to tell by comparing the photos and being 10 yrs. later, but everything matches her. The age, height, weight, hair, eye color, appendics removed and scar, scars on the knee and chin. Great job !

    Previous mention of April...

    April Zane was mentioned in a previous post under the following thread:
    Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - Zanesville, OH...the '50s

    Link:
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ght=april+zane

    Her case has also been mentioned a few other times in this forum. This looks like a good match. The troubling question, of course, is where was she for the intervening ten years?

    i think you are right there is a definite "cowlick" on both women and while this is a common growth pattern ( I have the same thing on my forehead)there are just too many things that are alike in these 2 except charleyproject lists April as having facial freckles and Jane Doe doesn't appear to have any.

    Freckles often disappear by adulthood so maybe that could explain why Jane Doe didn't have any.
