    I went ahead and asked about Houston John Doe. I would really like to see him identified. It is such a sad case. He was just a teenager.

    I’ve got a very small update on the Google Drive thing.

    New Britain Jane Doe has only one new match, bringing her total to 212.

    Also, Apache Junction Jane Doe still does not have a match over 30 cm but her closest match went up to 27.9 cm.

    Just in case anyone hasn't seen it yet, but Pulaski County "Jubel" Jane Doe is now in the GEDMatch system. She was a difficult one to get an extraction from. Good luck, DDP!

    Mecklenberg has dropped off the Googledrive.... ID pending? Or just so little movement on her numbers that they took her off?

    No? She’s on there under “Charlotte Jane Doe”.

    That’s cool! I’m from Alabama. Maybe I know of her family. Hopefully she will be identified soon and we can get her back down here (if she is truly from here).

    If they’ve identified a first cousin or a niece, she’ll be identified soon. Could be by the end of this month since it’s really close.

    Update on Facebook page:

    Birchwood John Doe and Kenosha John Doe are now in the GEDMatch system! They are getting a bunch of cases active. Good for them. They must have gotten more volunteers.

    Good find, JovanSrna! I remember a case that was solved a year or two ago. It was a John Doe from 1921 who was hit by a train and he just got identified! Never say never.

    Do you guys remember the Reddit post about John Clinton Rock Doe? Carl Koppelman posted that it was a false post from someone claiming to be the Doe’s “brother”. His name is NOT HENRY.

    Margaret mentioned the same thing a while back in a Facebook comment. Speaking of Carl and Margaret, people often ask the project about Walker County Jane Doe as a potential case. This is Carl's ''pet case'' in his own words. There was a comment by Margaret a while back suggesting someone else is working on it, but her more recent answer to one woman's question on Facebook suggests that they would take it and she suggested that the woman contact the agency responsible for the case.

    Yeah, I saw that. I am sure Walker County PD knows who DDP is. They have also been approached about Beth Doe. Both are highly publicized cases. It would be good if they took those on. Get the DDP some good publicity, like with Lyle Stevik and Orange Socks.

    This was posted on the DNA Doe Project Facebook page 2 hours ago (6pm EST) or thereabouts. I lived south of there in 1980 so was curious about this case.
    DNA Doe Project
    DNA Doe Project Case Announcement: Rockledge Jane Doe – Brevard County, Florida (1980)

    Status: Research in progress.

    Who was Rockledge Jane Doe?
    On October 11, 1980 a passing motorist found the body of a black woman on the east shoulder of an isolated rural road about 100 yards north of Barnes Boulevard in Rockledge, Brevard County, Florida. She had been shot in the head and the case is considered a homicide. She was 21-30 years old, weighed about 120 pounds, was 5’6, and had brown hair and eyes.

    During the search for the woman’s identity the investigators discovered that she had been arrested in Pinellas County, about 150 miles to the west. The name she gave when booked was “Joanne English”, which turned out to be false, along with her Social Security number and date of birth. DNA, fingerprints, and dental records are available for comparison.

    NamUs: UP2312
    Date found: 11 Oct 1980
    Race: Black/African American
    Sex: Female
    Age: 21 to 30 years
    PMI: 1 day
    Location: Rockledge, Florida

    Anyone who believes they have relevant information on this case should contact authorities directly:
    Brevard County Sheriff’s Office
    Joseph Martin
    321-633-8419
    joseph.martin@bcso.us
