    Donna Mae Bourgeois Bayerl looks like a pretty good possible match to this Jane Doe

    The key distinctive features of the Jane Doe are her height (5'10"), her crooked front teeth, and her prominent hooked nose with the large dorsal lump.

    Donna's photos don't offer a real good look at her teeth, but they appear to protrude unusually, and she very strongly resembles the PM photo of the Jane Doe.

    * Her uncommonly tall height (5'9") is within an inch of the Jane Doe's height.
    * She has a similarly hooked nose with a dorsal lump.
    * Her eye color (Brown) matches.
    * Her age (37 in Feb'82) would be consistent.
    * Her Loc LKA (Muskego WI) is about 200 miles from Bloomington Illinois.
    * The timeframe between Date LKA and the Jane Doe's date of death is 21 months. But the circumstances of Bayerl's disappearance are unclear. She may have voluntarily left her family, in which case, the circumstances would not be inconsistent with the timeframe.

    Yes, the hanging might have stretched her spine out to add an inch or more to 5'9".

    I think you really nailed that one Carl. Everything seems consistent. Are you waiting for a few other PMs before submitting her? :)

    No, I already submitted to Lori Bruski. I saw a couple of others that looked interesting, but this DonaMae looks pretty close IMO.

    The ears don't look right to me. Donna had unusually high ears. The nose is spot-on though.

    I wonder how old those photos are - perhaps her ears could have dropped some with age. The 1970s porn actress Georgina Spelvin said in a recent interview that she still has the same measurements that she had back then but they are now closer to the ground:naughty:

    Is there more information on this case? Was this Jane Doe homeless?

    Interesting case. The UID has a very distinctive nose. Could her nose's appearance be a result of plastic surgery?

    Who were the people who said that they knew her? Did she go by an alias?

    I was just in Bloomington today. Does anyone know exactly where she was found and what type of utility pole it was? Also, how sure are they that it was a suicide? Couldn't lynching be a possibility?

    I think probably drew the suicide conclusion based off people saying she appeared mentally unstable.

    I take it you never heard back on this possible match? She looks spot on.

    This is a hometown case for me. I had not heard about this case until I began to look at this forum and elsewhere online about the missing and the unidentified. I haven't been able to find info about this case through the local paper, The Pantagraph, but suspect the archives may hold more details about the case. An extensive archive is online at newspapers.com but it is behind a paywall. :notgood: So far I can't find any information about where she was found, or anything about those who witnessed her before her death.

    DonaMae Bayerl has been excluded, per info on NamUS.

    ETA: NamUs changes show Jane Doe's age range as 29-50.

    There is actually more information listed on NamUs than I have seen elsewhere about where she was found, which wasn't in Bloomington at all but rather nearby rural LeRoy...
    Heartbreaking that this case seems to have never been a priority.
    NamUs
    "On February 2, 1982, at approximately 13:50 hours, a woman whose identity is not known was found hanging from a utility pole in rural McLean County on Route 136 near Le Roy, IL. Who this woman is and why she apparently committed suicide is not known."
