    Bumping case up. This Jane Doe was probably killed way back in 1948. Does anyone have more information?

    Wow, coming up on 70 years without an ID.

    What about Frances Groves? https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/17377/0/
    Height fits, and her teeth look prominent to me, but her age is off and the year is wrong. But they said year was estimated and Kern and Riverside counties are within daytrip distance, depending on which part of the county.

    Another possibility: Bertha Smith of Maricopa County, Arizona.
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/11819/14?current_page=circumstances
    Wrote a mysterious letter to her family and disappeared in 1944. Height fits, she seems to have buckteeth, and her age is closer than Frances. Not too close, but within a reasonable range.

    Patricia Crandall: Age (18 - 19) is one year off, height (5'3) is within range, timing (disappeared March 1949) is consistent.
    Shasta County is 466 miles from Kern County, but it says that Patricia was last seen with a black suitcase so it's possible she was going on a trip when she disappeared.

    Patricia Crandall and especially Lorraine Chance both seem like really good potential matches.

    Are you thinking it could be one of his father's victims, Stan?

    Think Frances is too much of a stretch, age-wise. Bertha could be a fit but not sure how they'd match them because Jane Doe only has dentals available and Bertha doesn't. :(

    I think Lorraine's teeth look too straight to be "buck teeth" like JD is described as having -- her teeth are large but they're in line with the others, the front teeth don't protrude.
