I wish DDP would release surnames of all Does that they are struggling to identify.

I have never read anything about this doe that was dropped off of DDP's list. The new composite is terrible, no one has all their features in the middle of a very circular face with a very square jaw.

The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs)

Also, my family has been in OH/KY/IN for more than 200 years (some longer due to being Native Americans). We are not Amish or Mennonites, we're Dunkers (German Brethren) and that information could possibly help with identification.

IIRC The two Snohomish County JD's were dropped due to heavy bacterial contamination with DNA.

I made a new sketch for Sultan Basin John Doe since his new one is so awful.
The genealogical research for Sultan Basin John Doe was done by somebody else (the single genealogist from Portland), DDP was not involved in it:

“DNA-based family trees created by an Oregon genealogist suggest the Sultan Basin John Doe has deep roots in Texas and Louisiana on one side of his family. On the other side, he has genetic ties to Plain people — as in Amish and Mennonite communities — in Ohio and Indiana. And certainly he has relatives elsewhere”

Who Am I? Clues heat up search for name of another John Doe | HeraldNet.com

Ok, it is a DNA DOE case that was stalled. I don't understand the point that you are trying to make.

From the DDP facebook page:

The West Manchester Township Police Department has released a new reconstruction, created by Jenny Kenyon, of what West Manchester Township John Doe 2013 may have looked like.
Investigators previously thought that he was white, perhaps Hispanic, but based on his ethnicity admixture the DNA Doe Project determined that he is of 75% sub-Saharan African descent.
"This means our victim was black and may have had a Caucasian great-grandparent or great-great-grandparent in the family line," a police news release states.
DNA relationships show distant family in the North Carolina area and surrounding states, but his closest connections are in Washington County, North Carolina (specifically Roper & Plymouth) that are connected to the following surnames: Downing, Bembery, Spruill, Lee, Gaylord, Johnston, and Fields.
Other potential locations and surnames based on most recent common ancestors between his matches include:
▪️North Carolina: Skinner, Gallop, Freeman, Nobles, Dupree, Williams, Monk, Perry, Brown, Martin, White, Overton, and Owens
▪️Virginia: Eppes, Hundley, Spratley, and Waller
▪️Kentucky, North Carolina & New Jersey: Worley, Hamlin, Taylor, Williams, and Mattox
▪️Virginia & North Carolina: Sentell, Buchanan, Stephens, and Sterling
▪️Virginia, North Carolina & Arkansas: Taylor, Holloway, King, and Cheatham
If you have similar ancestry or recognize any of these surnames or locations from your OWN family tree, please consider uploading your raw DNA data, for free, to Gedmatch.com and FamilyTreeDNA.com (you'll also need to OPT-IN to LE matching on FTDNA). Before doing so, be sure to read the Terms of Service and be cognizant that uploading to other websites could yield unexpected results. Having a public tree on Ancestry, GEDmatch, and/or FTDNA (even if it's just of your direct line and only a couple of generations back) is also extremely advantageous to our research.
Please do NOT contact the agency with kit numbers or family history, ONLY with actual tips about John Doe himself. If you think you might be related, please know that we can see matches and will be able to see your kit if you are indeed a match to our Doe.
For more information on the new reconstruction and further details about this case, please check out this article: https://www.yorkdispatch.com/.../west.../4873777001/.

The West Manchester Township Police Department has released a new reconstruction, created by Jenny Kenyon, of what West Manchester Township John Doe 2013 may have looked like.
Investigators previously thought that he was white, perhaps Hispanic, but based on his ethnicity admixture the DNA Doe Project determined that he is of 75% sub-Saharan African descent.
"This means our victim was black and may have had a Caucasian great-grandparent or great-great-grandparent in the family line," a police news release states.
DNA relationships show distant family in the North Carolina area and surrounding states, but his closest connections are in Washington County, North Carolina (specifically Roper & Plymouth) that are connected to the following surnames: Downing, Bembery, Spruill, Lee, Gaylord, Johnston, and Fields.
Other potential locations and surnames based on most recent common ancestors between his matches include:
▪️North Carolina: Skinner, Gallop, Freeman, Nobles, Dupree, Williams, Monk, Perry, Brown, Martin, White, Overton, and Owens
▪️Virginia: Eppes, Hundley, Spratley, and Waller
▪️Kentucky, North Carolina & New Jersey: Worley, Hamlin, Taylor, Williams, and Mattox
▪️Virginia & North Carolina: Sentell, Buchanan, Stephens, and Sterling
▪️Virginia, North Carolina & Arkansas: Taylor, Holloway, King, and Cheatham
If you have similar ancestry or recognize any of these surnames or locations from your OWN family tree, please consider uploading your raw DNA data, for free, to Gedmatch.com and FamilyTreeDNA.com (you'll also need to OPT-IN to LE matching on FTDNA). Before doing so, be sure to read the Terms of Service and be cognizant that uploading to other websites could yield unexpected results. Having a public tree on Ancestry, GEDmatch, and/or FTDNA (even if it's just of your direct line and only a couple of generations back) is also extremely advantageous to our research.
Please do NOT contact the agency with kit numbers or family history, ONLY with actual tips about John Doe himself. If you think you might be related, please know that we can see matches and will be able to see your kit if you are indeed a match to our Doe.

I'm not sure if this was always listed this way or if it were changed after the DDP's findings, but Apache Junction Jane Doe is listed as "Hispanic/Latino" on NamUs rather than mentioning the proposed Native American genealogy that was ruled out last year.

It was put on pause for reasons not disclosed, and other avenues were looked into instead rather than the project, similar to the Dean Corll victim.

Thanks for letting me know, sorry that my response was rude. I did not mean it to be!

I have a very very far fetched theory about Jonesport John Doe, which may not work because of time differences. But I wonder if somehow, it’s possible that he was a victim of the 1999 crash of Egyptair 990 that went down near Nantucket, Massachusetts. It would be a 7 month difference rather than a two month, but I wonder if investigators could get a flight manifest of who was on the plane and compare any missing persons slightly matching the description to him.

Very pretty, but why give her such a different hairstyle?
Did what I could with limited resources. I've got a new graphic system I will be working with and will have better reconstructions soon!

The genealogical research for Sultan Basin John Doe was done by somebody else (the single genealogist from Portland), DDP was not involved in it:

“DNA-based family trees created by an Oregon genealogist suggest the Sultan Basin John Doe has deep roots in Texas and Louisiana on one side of his family. On the other side, he has genetic ties to Plain people — as in Amish and Mennonite communities — in Ohio and Indiana. And certainly he has relatives elsewhere”

Who Am I? Clues heat up search for name of another John Doe | HeraldNet.com

I cannot wait for this case to be solved. I lived near where he was found and I have wondered for so long who/when/why?
I'm so grateful that Sno Co is helping to give back the names of all the IUDs. It is an important mission to them.
