There appears to be some very "obvious" links to the UK; the clothes and the "preference" for the English language. These would be easy to arrange as a "red herring" however. I find the piece of a page from a German passport more telling. You don't easily obtaing a piece from a page of someone's passport. I'm thinking German with an attempt to misdirect the search in the direction of the UK.

I believe there are means of measuring isotopes from the teeth (I believe) that can accuately tell were a person spent their childhood and where they spent their most resent adult years. This seem to be the direction the authorities should go.

About travelling in Europe, i believe some kind of ID is necessary. Not necessarily passport, but driving licence or ID cards are also acceptable, if you are EU citizen.

Well, as a matter of fact driving license is not valid travel document, only passport or id-card. But, for example, i have travelled between Finland and Estonia dozens of times in last two years and not once been asked any kind of documents.

Btw: I change those parts, about the coins and cigarettes.

I wouldn't think she is from Estonia or whatever, in 2007 so called new EU countries haven't joined the Schengen area yet.

Well, perhaps from a much bigger country than tiny Estonia, with lots of people, some are unaccounted for, nobody notices.:rolleyes:

My impression is that finnish police never investigated this case very actively, I do not think the body will be exhumed for isotope analysis, because this case obviously is not a top priority for the police.

They hope someone will come forward with the information about this person and the case is pretty much closed.

BTw is this website set up by police or by a private person?
How did you manage to get those pictures from the police?

Russians need a visa to enter Finland, i believe possible russian origin was ruled out.

The police went through lots of recources, but her identity remains a mystery.

Like finns say, it seems that woman has fallen from the sky.

ah right, yep sorry--you are right. I think an EU driving license would be ok, but only if you're travelling within a country on a plane, for example...I travel on an American passport & my husband is English...but I remember when we went to Amsterdam, he had his passport & had to show it. Likewise, we're going to Riga this summer & he does need it. I've only travelled down to London a few times recently & you definitely need either a passport or an EU driving license & it must match your ticket (name)...I also have noted that London has far more intense security at the airport than Edinburgh.

So I think it depends on where you are travelling to& how, ie, plane, train, etc, and also from where you originated. Because of the bombings & plots in recent years in the UK, I know they are pretty strict about it & it hasn't relaxed...I was down to London a few months ago & the airport security was just as strict as ever.

The only time I have had to show a travel document/ID in the UK whilst travelling by train, was when I went from Newcastle to Edinburgh during the G8 summit in 2005.

This is a really strange case, especially since it has been so long and no family member or friend has come forward. It's very odd.

About the English books - I have two friends in Finland and they both know multiple languages including English, which they use every day on the Internet. They also regularly travel to England. So I'm not sure if a book in English is a clue that this woman was really Anglicized or not.

I was living in London in August 2007, my husband and two young children and I took the train to Edinburgh for a holiday...we did not have to show any kind of ID. We did take our passports etc just to be on the safe side as the terrorist problem was still quite prevalent.

Case History
The victim was found near Orivesi, Finland on April 6, 2007.
The place the victim was located is about six kilometers from the centre of the nearest town, Orivesi and about 1,5 to 2 kilometers from the nearest highway. It is obvious, that she got there by walking, because no trace of any vehicle was found. A single footprint showed that the woman had walked there alone.
There were no signs of physical abuse or an accident. Due to the fact there were some sort of drugs in her coat pocket, it is most likely that she committed suicide by taking an overdose.
A sports bag, that had label Get Act. on its side, was found on February 20th at Orivesi. The sport’s bag belonged to the unknown woman according to DNA- tests. There were some clean clothes and underwear and two pieces of a German passport in the bag. The pieces of passport and the English penny found in her purse may indicate that she was a German who had stayed or visited England or other way around. All labels were cut off from the clothes. It is still an unknown matter where she had purchased the bag.

hi, Mazama--

I just meant I only had to show it at the train stations one time, which was during the G8 summit in Edinburgh in July 2005 (travelling from Newcastle to Edinburgh). I've not had to do it any other time for train travel.

Just flew from Glasgow Prestwick to Riga, Latvia & back--English husband and I had to show our passports a few times between checking one piece of luggage & boarding the aeroplanes, both ways. Lativia, btw, is now part of the EU. I'm not an EU citizen & the only difference was that my passport was stamped entering Latvia, leaving Latvia & re-entering the UK. Husband only had to show his in both places, both ways.

Understandably so with the G8 Summit going on then. :smile:

After reading some of the reviews and looking at the dates, most of those people posted after her body was found. There were 2 or 3 people who posted comments about a similar MP3 player, not the same one that she had, those posts were dated Feb 2007 but the way they were written tends to make me think they were males writing them.

Finnish sources say that the police may know who this Jane Doe is. It has not been definitely confirmed yet but they're suspecting it's a German woman from Braunschweig who is 40-50 years old. Her name has not been released but she hadn't been reported missing. The German police is helping to investigate further. The cause of death is not related to crime, according to the police.

Here's the source (unfortunately not in English and the Google translation was rather unreadable so I won't bother posting it here)
