    According to Google Earth, the park she was found at was the Green Meadows Recreation Center. It is a few blocks from the 110 Freeway. I wonder why they thought that she may have worn glasses.

    I've seen her morgue photo and you can see where the nose pads sit on her face. I've always wondered if this girl could be:

    I had saved all the photos from the LA county coroner's website, but my computer caught a virus and it corrupted everything on the hard drive.
    The more I get to know some people, the more I like my cats!

    Dang! Are you sure that nothing is salvageable? I've been looking everywhere trying to find copies of those LA County photos. I have a few of them, but only the ones for which I did reconstructions.

    There's an interesting story in today's LA Times about the LAPD's one-of-a-kind murder library, which, when completed, will contain the casefiles on all murders (solved and unsolved) in Los Angeles.

    http://www.latimes.com/local/la-me-c...#axzz2l7C4o9AE

    There is a brief mention of this Jane Doe.

    There's the case of Jane Doe #62, who was discovered in a South Los Angeles park in 1991, naked from the waist down, her face in a pool of blood. Detectives worked leads that stretched to Mexico, but she was never identified, and the case was never solved.

    This recon of Jane Doe #62 is not that close, IMO.



    This is more like what Jane Doe #62 looks like:

    I wish post-mortem photos were available on this case. I feel that often that they are more useful for identification than drawings are.

    NCMEC has a rendering of the girl that illustrates her to be much heavier than Barbara Martin-Bailey's sketch does.

    Here's her NCMEC page.


    Cali Doe was Tammy Jo

    Any pm photo for this girl? I always get her mixed up with another UID found in LA in 1991. The other girl I believe was quite short though.
    Everything I ever say is my own opinion, I never intend to offend anyone!

    Who is Walker County Jane Doe?
