Amazing what a difference a little makeup makes.
Shared the new recons on Twitter. Hope someone recognizes them.
Just adding jewelry and articles again, but as screenshots for easier viewing. (Click on image to enlarge)

Thank you for taking the time to post these! I haven't read that article before
Just adding DNA Doe Project announcement from 30th Jan:
The DNA Doe Project has accepted the case of Pillar Point Doe (PPD), which is funded by the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office. Pillar Point Doe’s DNA arrived at the lab on 29 January 2019, so hopefully it won’t be long before this case is ready for analysis by our volunteers.
Who was Pillar Point Doe
On the morning of 26 November 1983, a deceased individual was found on Lower Pillar Point/Ocean Beach in Half Moon Bay, California. They were identified as male wearing women’s clothing, including a bra with foam breast forms. The deceased had been stabbed, beaten, and strangled hours prior to being discovered.
Date: Found November 26, 1983
Race: White / Caucasian

Anyone who believes they have relevant information on this case should contact authorities directly:

I am so incredibly excited that this case was selected by the DDP.
I always thought the NCMEC recon looked like Larry Williams who is missing from Long Beach, CA in 1975 at age 15.

Larry did have a chipped tooth and a hernia scar though. But they do favor each other.
"This just in from the DNA Doe Project: Pillar Point/San Mateo Doe’s DNA sample has passed quality control at the lab and is heading to sequencing! This is the final stage before the file can be uploaded and their forensic genealogy team can begin working. This is amazing! ❤️ We are still working on our article on this case, but want to go ahead and share these alternate images showing different possible presentations of this Doe, created in FaceApp from the coroner’s drawing. Since we do not know if this Doe was male identified and crossdressing, or female identified and trans, we will be using singular they/them pronouns or avoiding pronouns."

THAT is Great News!
I posted him at the beginning of the thread. But I never posted his phot. He was last seen in San Francisco in 1983. When exactly I don't know. I have not found any other info.
Anyway I saw the recent sketches and wanted to post his photo along w the sketches. He stats line up and sort of looks like the most recent sketches. I wonder if it's James?
Time will (hopefully) tell.
James is the closest resemblance I've seen.
I agree! James is really close to the sketch. Hopefully the PPD will be identified soon since DDP took them on.
This article came out about two days ago and I thought straight away about this John Doe.
It is renewed police appeal and 100 K reward to catch Serial Killer, called Doodler who was murdering around '74-75 around Ocean Beach of San Francisco. He draw sketches of his victims prior to their death, hence the Doodler nick name. All victims were white gay males and were viciously stabbed. One of the victims is described as female impersonator, which I think might be polite way of saying cross dresser.
He killed 5 men but police suspect up to 14 victims. They suspect he lived in Bay area and was coming to San Francisco to party on weekends.
Murder of John Doe happend 8 years after the fact but that he was found viciously stabbed too and then also in Ocean Beach area (even though 30 miles away from San Fran., it is still close)
Of course it might be all just coincidence too.

James looks like a very strong possibility IMO. Admittedly, a sketch is tough to go by, but I see distinct markers. The facial shape is unique.
Here is some additional info on James which makes me even more hopeful you have found a match:

"The DNA Doe Project would like to share these beautiful updated facial approximations for Pillar Point Doe by Kim Parkhurst who is a volunteer with the Trans Doe Task Force.
Kim has prepared two looks for how our Pillar Point Doe may have appeared, and worked hard to portray clothing that closely resembles our Doe's original garments. Thanks again for sharing your talents, Kim!

That's a much classier outfit than it sounded from the description.
