    BuzzFeed published a good article on the DDP, and it explains quite well why Colleen Fitzpatrick and Margaret Press have chosen not to do cases involving children.

    The latest news is that the second attempt at DNA extraction for Orange Socks has succeeded.

    Also John Clinton Doe is now officially a case after successful extraction of DNA from a femur.

    Things are starting to snowball. This is really exciting.

    I hope there's some sort of progress on DDP's approach to LE in Norway and Australia about the Isdal Woman and Somerton Man/Tamam Shud cases soon as well.

    It is indeed. It's exciting to see so many cases progressing to the next stage, though obviously disappointing for those that don't.

    Indeed.

    I'd nominate

    Sutton Bank Jane Doe/The Nude in the Nettles

    UK - UK - North Yorks, 'Sutton Bank Jane Doe' WhtFem Skeletal, 35-40, Aug'81

    UID: White Male, 23-39, torticollis (wry neck), CoD uncertain but buried on his knees (!), Staffordshire, March 1971

    He doesn't seem to have a thread here so unless there is one I've not found I'll start one for him.

    874UMUK

    Although CoD is unknown it's almost certain he was a murder victim. My guess is either gangland or IRA or similar execution.

    Het Heulmeisje
    Holland - Holland - Bergen, WhtFem, 12-15, 'Het Heulmeisje', may be German, Oct'76

    -------

    There's also a few Dutch, German, and Polish cases I would like to add, too, but haven't come around to search up their cases yet. I'm also trying to find more information on Slagstakvinnan (The Slagsta Woman) from Sweden, but I'm only directed to tabloid news media and I don't think she has a thread here on Websleuths.
