    This looks real good to me. The scars match up perfectly, and there is a definately a resemblance between the JD and April. Have you turned it over to the Doe Network yet?

    I think this is an excellent possibility, KT Can! Wow. Good job... The descriptions/characteristics sure match up really well. Like 2sisters, I also compared April Rose Zane's photo with the postmortem photo. I agree that the condition of the face in the postmortem photo makes it difficult to see many similarities, but this is a potential match that the Doe Network and LE should definitely check out. Wow.

    I sure hope this leads to a resolved case!

    More than likely this has been looked into in the past. When I used to send in matches, I often would find that for each one that looks a high likely, they've already looked into it and have received 2-3 calls a month suggesting them...

    Never hurts to try, though, right? I wouldn't refrain from sending in a possible match on the basis that it was more than likely already done by someone else.

    There are definate similarities.....good work KT!:D Let us know what your hear...

    I hear ya...The one thing LEA absolutely hates is when sites aren't updated and people continually call about cases...There was a case in MD of a missing woman who was found dead years ago but not taken off a missing person site. She had a lot of similarities to a UNID in Texas. They got call after call about it...

    Did anyone else notice the similarity between the center hairline of April Zane and the hairline (again, in the center) of the post mortem doe photo? Some things never change on a person, and this would be one of those things. That really makes me wonder if this could indeed be the same person.

    I'd be willing to put some money on this one. It's hard to tell by comparing the photos and being 10 yrs. later, but everything matches her. The age, height, weight, hair, eye color, appendics removed and scar, scars on the knee and chin. Great job !

    April Zane was mentioned in a previous post under the following thread:
    Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - Zanesville, OH...the '50s

    Link:
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29787&highlight=april+zane

    Her case has also been mentioned a few other times in this forum. This looks like a good match. The troubling question, of course, is where was she for the intervening ten years?

    i think you are right there is a definite "cowlick" on both women and while this is a common growth pattern ( I have the same thing on my forehead)there are just too many things that are alike in these 2 except charleyproject lists April as having facial freckles and Jane Doe doesn't appear to have any.

    Freckles often disappear by adulthood so maybe that could explain why Jane Doe didn't have any.

    Here is an updated case history from the Doenetwork. Evidently, there was a later possible sighting of April Rose Zane, so they have revised their date for her disappearance. Also, a new link is provided below.

    --------------------------------------------------------
    April Rose Zane, 16, Missing since April 18, 1977 from Frankfort, IL

    April Rose Zane

    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'4"-5'6"; 115-120 lbs.

    Circumstances of Disappearance

    Zane was last seen in Frankfort, Illinois on April 18, 1977. (It is possible that she went missing the year prior - 1976). She was going into town to visit a friend. She never made it to the friends' house and was never heard from again.

    April had a record of running away from home, but always turned up later. She was found several times in the Chicagoland area and arrested for curfew violation.

    Here's a link to it on my Photobucket account, I'm not sure it would be a good idea to post post-mortem pics directly on the forum, even though this one is not shocking or gruesome, but the person is obviously dead and her face is bruised from a severe beating. Those who are sensitive to the sight of lifeless bodies should not click the link. You have been warned.

    Hello. I am Barbara from The Doe Network and I am the Illinois Area Director for Doe. I rarely post here but I often read and I think you all do a wonderful job in trying to find our missing and send our Does home.

    April's sister, Sharon, also reads many Internet sites looking for her sister. I know it's easy to sometimes forget that a family member might stumble across something we write and although it sounds harmless and logical to us, it can be hurtful to them. This is the case with the question as to whether April was pregnant. I promised Sharon that I would let you all know that April, to the best of her family and friends' knowledge was not sexually active when she vanished and was not pregnant.

    I have been looking for a possible match to Linda Ann House, I believe I may have found her, but, I wanted you all's input, her story is here:
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/h/house_linda.html

    The Unidentified is here; http://meyahna.tripod.com/pg22.html & here; http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/184ufks.html, The Jane Doe's first sketches are here; http://www.geocities.com/patdf2001/

    Linda Ann was 8 months pregnant at the time, and Jane Doe's autopsy revealed she had recently given birth, so another concern is (of course) where is the child?
    This is my first thread, so I think I am not able to post pics side by side (or I would to make it easier for you).....
    I really appreciate you people and all that you have done & do here!
    Thanks People!
