    They should disseminate this information in Ohio as well.

    An NPE is a non-paternity event. That means that the person who is her father may not actually be her father.

    Most likely, Grundy County Jane Doe is adopted or an NPE is happening. This is why the investigators are having trouble.

    This is not the worst thing that could happen. DNA Doe Project has some of the best genealogists. They have solved an NPE before (remember James Richard Curry, who killed Mary Edith Silvani was an illegitimate child!!). It may take a little bit more time but her case is in the best of hands.

    If you are in the area of Selma, Alabama, PLEASE share! This is where her grandparents are from.

    Selma is a huge history town with Martin Luther King Jr and everything. It’s a lovely town. I live in Alabama so I have shared her along. Hopefully someone recognizes who she is.

    Fingers crossed the recent MSM interest over the Loveless case will improve the chances of media reporting in the geographic areas mentioned.

    DDP's Facebook page gained 1,000 likes since Loveless's press conference and Kraig King's identification.

    Fantastic new @Liv27 Do you know if DDP are strategic in release of cases/IDs? It seems to me, if I wanted a case to get more publicity and attention (so I could solve it) that it would make commonsense to release a highly marketable and attention-grabbing case (like Loveless) just beforehand. Raise the profile, get MSM and the public interested. Then in quick succession put out a really hard one. Leverage off the earlier hype as much as possible to try and solve the harder case (Grundy).

    Possibly but they usually just release as soon as LE allows them to.

    There have been enough positive results that the public is starting to get behind the technique. An acquaintance who last year said she'd never allow anybody to access her DNA just added hers to GEDMatch and opted in...

    Did not know, or must have forgotten that Seneca Doe had a bottle of wine in her pocket.
    ''In the fall of 1976, the body of a young African American woman was found on the shoulder of a rural highway near downstate Seneca. She was wearing a colorful red sweater, with a bottle of wine in the pocket. It was believed she may have been in her twenties, but she had no ID.''

    I didn't realise that. I wonder what fingerprints (if any) they were able to lift from the bottle.

    FWIW, I first discovered this Doe after listening to a podcast. I rarely listen to them so I can’t be certain which one it was, but it seemed to have quite a bit of information without being overly “fluffy”... I think it must have been this one though:

    She has a new top match per the DDP's spreadsheet at 67.5 cM.
