I just found out that this Jane Doe was solved. I have off and on, tried to identify her. Police have long suspected that her murderer was Dale Anderson, a "sexual psychopath, imprisoned for one of the most brutal slayings in Belleville history..."

Wow. I wonder where they got all of that. I have followed this case for years and have talked to people involved many times and they always said they didn't think Anderson did this one, (or the others beyond what he is prison for) that he likes to claim things for the attention.

I don't live in the USA so its difficult for me to try to sleuth this but I would REALLY love some Of you wonderful folk to nut this out with me.
This girl was adopted
This girl has another mother, another father, maybe siblings
They ALSO have the right to know that this girl has died.

I'm adopted, I write about adoption , this ones close to my heart, and I don't like it when adoptive parents , after their child has died , in this case brutally murdered and assaulted , turn around and say what a troublesome child she was ......

and so...............

.......does that mean she deserved this ....................

Why bring that into it ?

So come on whose game to try and solve this one with me ?

Also whats with the name ? Some reports say Pholia Mylia Chavez and others say Eulalia Mylia Chavez

Was this her adopted name given to her ? OR her birth name

Okay here is ome interesting stuff http://www.officialcoldcaseinvestigations.com/showthread.php?t=581&page=2
including list of evidence

Scroll down to the next poster and check this out regarding similar cases

I the Summerfield case, attempted removal of the entire vaginal area was clearly noted at the crime scene and during autopsy.

Both women had extensive dental work - coincidence ?


Is this you Medusa ?
Thanks. This whole thing is so sad. The family never reported her missing and apparently if the local (CA) police had put her prints in NCIC they might have id'd her years ago. Last I heard the family is donating her remains to the Body Farm and the grave here will be a memorial to her. This just makes me so sad. I am glad she is id'd now, to be sure, but sad she seemingly wasn't missed by her family.

Maybe I can re ignite your interest

I am appalled at how this adoptive mother has simply forgotten her child that she took and adopted as her own , even giving her body to science

:( just not right

I have always kept my interest in this, and I know that Rick Stone, the coroner, for one has kept his interest as well, in finding her killer.

As to locating her Biological Family - I don't think her Adoptive Family is working on this, or, cares -that makes me so sad. I have read elsewhere that the community of Summerfield was working last Spring to get her Adoptive family to okay her return to Summerfield (where she was found, her grave was actually here) and let them create a memorial for her. I haven't heard more on this. Will have to search a bit and maybe make some calls.

If I have read everything correctly, she was adopted from Costa Rica - an international adoption. About international adoptions, I know little. Are there boards and what not that have people searching for their Birth families in Costa Rica, or families searching for members adopted to the States. I am wondering if someone can find that. I would imagine if there are prospects, the local authorities here might help if they are able. In terms of matching up info - maybe the local LE who visited the Adoptive family have adoption records - that is a guess on my part, that I don't know.

Ironically I was thinking about her today, and reading some other things on her, the old newspaper articles.

I believe this was her Birth name - the last name Chavez which at some point she began using. I think her legal name was Wilcomer.

Hi :)
its hard enough to trace your family when your alive let alone when you are a dead person.
But I will have a little investigation with some people that are adopted and into adoption rights in the USA and see what help they can lend...

Hold up, if you would Jane. I am trying to connect with someone who would know if LE has done anything in the area of locating Bio family. I should know by Tues or Wed I would think. Might end up saving time.

I feel like this has been updated elsewhere, but I noticed it had not been here. Just in case someone was looking for current information.

http://www.coldcasefiles.us/2008/02/after-21-years.html

She was identified as Pholia Mylia Chavez, an occasionally used alias. Her name was Eulalia Mylia Chavez. Her nickname was Lolly. What a relief to finally know what happened to your child and sister, and to finally have a name on her, to know who she was.

There is still a First Mother out there who does not know that her child is Dead Murdered

There is also a child out there - Chavez's biological child that does not know that his/her biological mother is dead/murdered and one day when he / she does look and does find.............the truth.....will be saddened...

A relief ? I think not............

From March 2010:

http://www.legalnews.com/detroit/666672

Katie is the daughter of Summerfield's "Jane Doe," who was strangled and left in a cornfield outside the small village. She remained unidentified for more than 21 years until in January 2008 an FBI fingerprint recheck revealed she was 27-year-old Eulalia Pholia Mylia Chavez Wilcomer...

Katie, now 32, learned the name of her mother, who gave her up for adoption in California when she was an infant, from her mother's high school friend in 2008, then learned through a computer search that her mother was found in an Illinois cornfield near a small town called Summerfield, strangled, mutilated and unidentified for decades...

Though its been 24 years since the murder, police insist they are still pursuing the killer by following every lead, including the latest that involves a register for what used to be called the Lebanon Hotel... A former Lebanon police chief, Jerry Harris, said he remembered hearing that Chavez had stayed overnight in a room in the village, possibly with a boyfriend.

Larry D. Hall, a federal prisoner in North Carolina, remains a suspect in the murder and disappearance of dozens of girls and young women mostly throughout the Midwest, including 13 who remain unidentified. Now, Hall has emerged as a suspect in the Chavez killing, St. Clair County investigators say.

Hall became the prime suspect in Chavez’s murder after he admitted in a prison telephone interview with an Associated Press reporter that he had abducted 39 women and also confessed to several sexual murders. He mentioned in a hand-printed letter to a television reporter in 2008 that he killed Chavez. The letter implied that he found Chavez, who traveled basically by hitching rides, in St. Louis.

He later recanted all of the confessions, including Chavez’s murder, and denied killing anyone.

Local law enforcement officials are hoping DNA evidence will tie him to the Chavez killing three decades ago.

DNA testing fails to identify killer of Summerfield ‘Jane Doe’

http://www.bnd.com/news/local/article126695289.html

Edit: I don't know if I've seen this Eulalia Chavez thread before today, but here's one that is an unidentified Jane Doe from near the same area. The one that I initially started looking into when I came to WS.

http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...UFIL-25-40-in-bean-field-upper-denture-Jul-90

Looks like there are similar circumstances. About 4 years apart. Something like 15 miles apart via road (Jarvis Township, IL to Summerfield, IL).

Edit 2: I noticed Sable, post 9, also wondered if these were connected.

I still wonder if she might have been a BTK victim.
