    According to his thread, Delafield John Doe has been identified as John Lindberg Scott of Bristol, Tennessee. There's no official announcement yet aside from a facebook post made by the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office.

    Also another new case has been added: Porter County Jane Doe (2021)

    This is actually similar to Hudson John Doe. There’s no NamUs page for her, and investigators had interred her body believing she was buried in 1945, but she didn’t turn out to be the suspected person.

    On the subject of Hudson John Doe, his case and Baseline Road John Doe’s cases have moved to solved cases. Hudson John Doe was Richard Bunts/Bunce; born in 1793 and had most likely died sometime in the mid 1850s. He was linked by DNA to his great great great granddaughter.

    Baseline John Doe’s name will not be shared by request from Phoenix PD. Perhaps they will announce it later.

    Jefferson County John Doe and Rohnert Park John Doe are still listed as active cases.

    From Baseline JD's summary:

    Team Leader Cairenn Binder stated, “We are honored to have played a part in giving Baseline John Doe his name back. Although a conviction was already brought in the case of John Doe’s homicide, Detective Stuart Somershoe was committed to ensuring that the victim was identified.”

    That's very interesting. A victim from a bodyless homicide conviction, perhaps?

    EDIT: Or I guess the simpler explanation is that knew who did it before and the victim was just unidentified, like El Dorado Jane Doe.

    Three cases announced to be solved in one day! Wonderful. I am waiting for additional details on Delafield John Doe case, I am really surprised he was identified and I guess his identification happened back in 2020. He is still listed as a DDP fund case and has far to go to be funded.

    So 50 cases are officially announced to be solved and 2 cases we know were solved but not announced yet. Out of 70 :)

    @DNA_Sleuth just so you're aware, there's still a donate button under John Scott's page on the success stories page.

    I am wondering if there are any news on Julie Doe case (a transgender woman), hope there is a development in her case as well, her matches are in the range of the John Scott’s matches, it gives me hope, that she can be identified as well :)

    @DNA_Sleuth Hey Joan, Baseline JD is listed under solved cases on the DDP website, may be you can move him to solved sheet on the spreadsheet :) One case less for you to update

    Good catch! 306 now, it was 254 before. Though I believe endogamy is a significant factor with this one.

    All of the donation cases have also been moved to pending for some reason, even though half of them are active, I'm not sure what's happening there.
