    Question FL - Unidentified bodies in South Florida to be exhumed for DNA testing

    Pembroke Pines-based Missing Children International Ministries and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office are starting by digging up 15 bodies whose DNA never was entered in the FBI's national DNA database.

    The first bodies should be exhumed this year. DNA tests hopefully will identify people who have been missing for decades.

    Missing Children International Ministries plans to expand the project called "Who Am I?" next to Broward County, then statewide. Dinorah Perry founded the non-profit group in 2004 to help solve missing persons cases.

    Perry estimates that there are 200 unidentified bodies in South Florida alone....

    Florida needs to exhume the bodies of all the people they placed in John/Jane Doe graves for DNA. There are so many families that need answers, and those answers may well be hidden away from us until the DNA of every unknown they have buried is entered into CODIS.
    Debora Sue Lowe - Age 13, missing from Pompano, FL since February 29, 1972 (Leap Year)
    Missing Child Haunts Family Nearly 40 Years Later - 9/19/2011

    Debbie is believed to have been a victim of the serial killer Gerard John Schaefer Jr. He was convicted of only two murders in the 1970s but is believed to be responsible for the murders and disappearances of many other girls and young women in the 60s and 70s, including Wendy Stevenson, Peggy Rahn ,Carmen Hallock, Pamela Nater and Nancy Leichner in 1966.
