    I submitted this Jane Doe to the ME as a possible match on 2/2/12 and asked if they thought the remains may have been there since 1980.

    They replied:

    They never answered about the length of time they might have been there.

    I just spoke with Detective Perez. Very nice guy :) He thanked me for submitting this match and wanted to let me know that they tracked down her daughter for dna. They have submitted the dna to NamUs and are waiting on the results. He said he would let me know what the outcome is...

    Adelaida's story just came up on my FB.

    I am intrigued. Was she married? Divorced? Were there searches for her? Where did she live? Just thinking out loud.

    I was browsing some missing Miami cold cases and started researching. Adelaida was married and divorced him by 1978. She filed in 1974. She lived rather close to him after the divorce. Looks like he remarried the same year their divorce went through and lived rather close to her. The location where they lived would make sense to drive directly west towards the Everglades and dump a body in a canal that's infested with alligators. I used to live between their residence and the canal. I wonder if the DNA ever matched.

    Hi. Did you ever hear back from the detective about the DNA? There have been so many changes in personnel, so he may not have got back to you if someone else is handling cold cases.
