    The NCMEC has a new facial reconstruction for this Jane Doe:

    An unidentified female was found deceased in Apopka, Florida on April 22, 1993. Her body was found approximately one quarter mile north of highway 441 off Piedmont Wekiwa Road. She had been deceased for 3-6 weeks. The female is estimated to be in her late teens to early twenties. She had dark brown, shoulder length hair, stood between 4’11”-5’05” and weighed 100-110 pounds. An anthropological assessment suggests the female was of European or mixed ancestry with an appearance of Hispanic. It is also noted that she had Spina bifida occulta, however the female may not have been aware of this or portrayed any outward symptoms. The female had seen a dentist in life as evidenced by several dental fillings; however overall she had poor dental hygiene. Several cavities had started, tooth loose, periodontal disease and an abscess towards the bottom right of her jaw was noted. The female was found clothed wearing a large white t-shirt with the “New York Giants” logo along with the “Super Bowl Champions XXV” on the front with teal colored shorts. Underneath she wore a one piece light blue bathing suit. She also had on a pair of white Gitano Casuals brand sandals, size 8 as pictured above. The female also wore several pieces of jewelry including earrings and three rings. The female had three piercings in each ear and wore the hoop earrings that are depicted above. One of the 14K gold rings was worn on her left ring finger. A second ring was gold with the center stone setting empty and the third was a gold AVON ring with a clear center stone. The female also wore fake fingernails on both hands. The images above are a facial reconstruction completed by a NCMEC Forensic Artist and depicts what she may have looked like in life.

    Patricia Schmidt and Tiffany Sessions are currently the only listed rule-outs for this Jane Doe.

    I also know that in 2008, Aundria Bowman was looked at as a possible match. But I also know that at the time, there would have been no means of doing a scientific rule out. Since she now has a DNA profile in CODIS, I would think a hit would have been generated if she was a match to this Jane Doe.

    Christine Marie Markey is from NY. Maybe that's the NY Giants T-shirt connection??

    Above Images: Markey, circa 1993

    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance

    Missing Since: January 10, 1993 from Oneida, New York
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Date Of Birth: November 13, 1970
    Age: 22 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'2, 105 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, brown eyes. Markey has a rose tattooed on her right ankle and a scorpion tattooed on her left hip. There is a scar on her chin. Her nickname is Chris.
    Clothing/Jewelry Description: A black leather coat with fringe on the bottom, black jeans, small pearl ring on her left middle finger, a gold chain necklace with a pearl and diamond on it, and a gold bracelet.

    Details of Disappearance

    Markey was last seen in Oneida, New York on January 10, 1993. She got into an altercation with her girlfriend of several years at a bar in the vicinity of Phelps Street that day. Markey had apparently been seeing a man, and her girlfriend confronted them together at the bar. They argued, and Markey and her girlfriend left together. Their landlord saw them go into the apartment they shared in the 400 block of Elizabeth Street. Markey has never been heard from again. She carried a leather pocketbook at the time of her disappearance.
    Markey took no other personal belongings with her and she never picked up her last paychecks from either of her two jobs, one of which was at the Oneida Ltd. factory's knife division. She resided in the 400 block of Elizabeth Street in Oneida at the time of her disappearance. Markey's boyfriend was questioned and ruled out as a suspect, but her girlfriend is considered a person of interest in the case. The two women had apparently had a troubled relationship for the past four or five years.

    Markey had several run-ins with the law prior to her disappearance, but her father said she'd been doing well in the three or four years before she vanished and had completed college. Although there is no hard evidence of foul play, authorities consider her disappearance suspicious. No one has been charged in connection with Markey's disappearance; her case remains unsolved.

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

    She meets the parameters but distance is a problem. Unidentified female had been deceased for 3-6 weeks and Tricia went missing about 4 weeks before.

    I'm looking at her as maybe a runaway from years previous. She had dental care in the past, but more recent poor hygiene. Fake fingernails. Clothes that don't fit (42-44 shirt on a small frame.) I just kind of get the runaway, got caught up in a bad scene vibe, killed by a pimp or a John, maybe. With that in mind...

    Lillian Estrada, missing from California in September, 1990.

    Tina Couch, missing from South Carolina in April 1991.

    Lurline Bergeron, missing from Florida in July 1991.

    I wonder if these cases are connected at all... I know that they are years apart, but the fact that both were found in wooded areas wearing similar large "nightshirt's" and appear to have similar features makes me wonder if both women met with the same serial killer


    The proximity to where the UID's were found is also very close and along the same road!

    Bumping for this Jane Doe
    Listed in NamUs on 05/07/2014 is Patricia Gonzalez who went missing on 04/07/1993
    No DNA, Dental or Fingerprints available, so not really possible to submit for a potential match at this point.
    No picture available; she's listed as being 4'7", very tiny

    However, I'm leaning more toward a college student on Spring break who may have met foul play, based on the TOD and clothing found on the body.
    All you need is love and. . . .(fill in the blank)

    This was not an area that spring breakers would be drawn too. When i lived there, it was lower middle class and semi rural. No attractions there other than Kelly Park, a start park popular with locals but pretty much undiscovered by tourists.
