    Interesting. However it can unfortunately take a few months for DNA testing.

    Apparently it was a bottle of TJ Swan wine, flavour unknown. It's no longer being produced and was a very cheap, sweet wine which would appeal to both young people and poor or homeless people.

    So it seems like the DDP reposted their finds on her earlier this month, looking for more leads, so I'm guessing she's NOT one of the 13ish or so who are identified who haven't been announced yet.

    Its a pity she still has so few matches on the spreadsheet. This gorgeous lady deserves to come home.

    I actually talked to Carl and got his reconstruction of her and put it on the Wikipedia page for unidentified murder victims, hopefully it will garner some more attention.

    His recon once again is magic. Shows a beautiful lady with a captivating face but also shows her gentle, vulnerable side

    I'm going to try soon to make a seperate page for Illinois cases too, and I'll be using her as a "Featured" Case, with her image front and center when the page loads.

    Someone finally made a page (since I've been busy) for Unidentified Murder Victims in Illinois, and I've moved Carl's reconstruction of GCJD front and center as a 'featured' case. Hopefully this will lead to more exposure.

    Are you talking about FB page, website page, Wiki or Wikipedia page? When you find a time do you mind to post link to it so we can all check it out?

    Thank you.

    I’ve still been researching Carola. I have NO clue how I didn’t see this before, but thought I’d share with you in case you missed it too...this is on her NamUs profile: DAVENPORT reported missing to P.P.D. 02/23/1976 by bio brother (located/interviewed/DNA). DAVENPORT was last seen in the company of her boyfriend Robert WILKINS (deceased) at 7201 Devon Street, 19119. DAVENPORT left behind clothing, a vehicle and 11 month old twins - male (deceased) and female (located/interviewed/DNA).

    I can't help but feel like their DNA would have been compared already, but she's not on the rule out list.

    I think Carola’s DNA is recent. Certainly within the last year, but I suspect more recent than that. I imagine you’re probably right though. I’m glad they were able to do that for her!

    It still wouldn't hurt to submit though, since there's no definitive ruleout yet.

    Oh, yes! I submitted her several months ago. The ME said she was on his list of possible matches and that they were waiting for comparison of the two. I haven’t heard anything since then. That’s what makes me think Carola’s familial DNA has only recently been entered. Now it’s just a waiting game!

    Looks like the recent changes in GedMatch have been extremely beneficial for her highest matches. I was worried because there was a drop in her highest match just a week ago and now her highest is 253.9 cM with 3 trees now. It was a full year ago this month that DNA Doe Project had reached out to the public to help try to identify her. Hoping that this year they are finally able to find out who she was and perhaps who had killed her.
