    I'm surprised that this case isn't getting much attention. Poor Leah and her family. Does anyone/LE have the name of suspect or POI? A young girl was here, lving and breathing, and someone took her away. She was someone's child, someone's grandchild, someone's friend. It's heartbreaking.

    There are many women and young girls who have been murdered by bikers in the early 80s. Many times the government works deals with these low life's in exchange for what they feel to be more important testimonies regarding other cases. I do not feel these sickos deserved to live let alone receive protection and deals from our country's government.

    Here is an article describing some of the biker rivalries that went on in Florida in the 80s. It was non stop killing between the Outlaws and Hells Angels. They were truly monsters.

    http://www.toledoblade.com/Police-F...ller-biker-turns-on-his-Outlaws-brothers.html

    This is what they did to women!!!!

    "The most gruesome charges were the executions of three Hell's Angels tied to cinder blocks and thrown in a rock pit. One ex-girlfriend was shot in the head with a spear-gun, and another was disemboweled and her body dragged from the back of a boat until it broke apart, prosecutors charged. After two years - the longest federal criminal trial in Florida history - six were convicted.

    Prosecutors relied on the testimony of former club members and girlfriends - all vying for reduced sentences."


    For more information regarding bikers killing women read about Dolores DellaPenna's case at the wiki page below. And I urge you to just type Dolores's name into google for a wealth of information you will be utterly shocked I assure you!

    Do they have MTdna on this Jane Doe? Can someone please ask and see if Leah Jean Van Schoick. has been ruled out as this Jane Doe. She also had biker connections.

    I'm incredibly confused.... Leah Jean VanSchoick is in the 1995 Hunterdon Central High School Yearbook. Unless there is another Leah Jean VanSchoick from New Jersey.

    I'm aware that this was posted over 3 years ago, but did you or anyone else ever ask about the DNA? I would be willing to email someone if nobody else has. Leah's name isn't on the exclusion list, so that's a good sign (well, as good as it can be... hopefully you know what I mean.)
