True about the weight.
Came across this one...from the murder records in the Netherlands....made me think of LPJD. A long shot, but maybe a familiar patern....
??-03-1989 Onbekende vrouw <unknown woman>
An American soldier stationed in Soesterberg , <the Netherlands> kills his wife and dumping her body in Broek in Waterland
Bump. I still think about her all the time.
Nothing really new but there is alot about this case at end of this article
Who killed Nanette Krentel? Unsolved death joins other mysterious north shore cases
An excerpt from the article:
(...) "But something else that didn't exist then is available now, Sharp said: genealogy. "Hopefully, genealogy is going to be tremendous in that case. It might trace her back to some relative from 1780 or something like that. They say they do have that capability," he said, though it's expensive.
The producers of a crime program have offered to pay the bill, Sharp said. "They have a pretty high success rate. They have experts on staff, experts in genealogy and in DNA," he said.
The woman's DNA profile has been submitted to open source databases, and Sharp said they are very hopeful that they will finally have a name for the victim. "The most important thing is identifying her," he said. "After that, I think everything else will fall into place."
Does this mean that genealogists are working on her case right now, and it's only a matter of time that she might be identified? (◉_◉)
I sure hope so!
Me too ...............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh, dear.. I forgot to tag you in my post, Folie, but I am happy you found your way in here to see this! I am crossing my fingers
Ty Badcrumble, no worries I was notified by a couple of WS's here about the article and I literally lost my $#%×#%@×%# reading it..... as much as expected I'm exceptionally excited and thrilled. I can only hope will hear more as her research progresses and her rightful name returned to her.
Have researched her so i. Depth for so many years .... down to any the tid bit I could find that would produce a potential lead to her origins... all thus far no dice. Lots of info but still no name...
I do wonder whom is handling her case as that I don't believe it is DDP. Possibly Parabon ?.. sure would like to know.
I can't find her in the recent DDP update, but I do know that St. Tammany Parish John Doe from 2016 is one of their cases and that Parabon Nanolabs is/has been involved with his case, too (PN did one of his recons, and he's among their featured cases on their website). Maybe she's still just at a early stage and whoever has her case do not want to announce it yet?
My brother in law is a detective for st. Tammany parish. Im going to see him tomorrow. I will see if he can find out anything.
@folieadeuxnola Isn't this exiting! You, being her advocate for so long, must be very happy with this news. Like you I spent many hours searching for a possible match. Your research an summaries were always very helpful. I will wait patiently for more to come.
SCHWEET............ Hope your able to find out a little more anything would be greatly appreciated.

Had forgotten about the weights until it was mentioned in the latest article. Was able to trace it back a few years ago to a manufacturer in Alabama. Their distribution streams included Kmart in which one was a few miles away from where LPJD. All thou back in the day Kmart's were every where and tracing back to where it was purchased would be a needle in a haystack unfortunately.
Believe I've found a possible match
Orbatron UltraKtron - 10kg / 22lb
Manufactured Diversified Products Corp - Opelika, AL (Closed 1998)
Diversified Products | Encyclopedia of Alabama
James decided to capitalize on an idea for concrete weights covered with plastic derived from Mobile weightlifter Joe Newman. was given the trade name Orbatron. In November 1961
The development of this new plastic enclosed weight material called Orbatron; led the company into new products for lamp manufactures (lamp base weight ballast) and the production of marine anchors.
Sears, Roebuck, and Co. was the first national retailer to purchase a large quantity of weights
Other major retail outlets soon followed, including Montgomery Ward, J. C. Penney, Kmart, Wal-Mart, Zayre's, and Sam's Club
Diversified Products or “DP” became the largest manufacturer of physical fitness products in the world with plants in Opelika, California, Canada, Mexico, and Swansea, Wales.

Something else that many have mentioned is the $20k for implants that is way out of the ballpark even for the early 80's. The most I have ever heard for at least within the metro area all the way up to BR is $12k at a state of the art facility with a high priced doctor. And that was in the last 10 year's .... in all it still points to some type of financial means background. Could she have been a dancer ....... possibly could she have married well or was involved with a financially stable individual..... possibly. Could it have been money received from an accident ... as someone pointed out to me he could have received settlement money from an accident. For years I have been searching via newspapers and ancestry for potentials all thou I have find a few that were indeed still missing that were not in a national database but now they are in NAmUS no one seem to fit the bill for LPJD.
In all hope we do hear progress of her case in the near future.
In this article from June 2019 they say:
While she hadn’t had any extensive dental work done, it was noted that her wisdom teeth had been removed. She also had four teeth missing, but it’s unknown if they were removed before death or if they were congenitally absent.
You could read it like; she missed her wisdom teeth and also four (other) teeth. I never saw this before.
Also still wondering about the mysterious call.
On June 18, 1986, police in Louisiana received a call from an unknown person saying they would find two bodies beneath an interstate bridge if they met up with a man at the state tourist information center on I-10, just west of Slidell, St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana. When they arrived, they found there was no one there to meet them. They searched around the I-10 and I-59 bridges for the bodies, but could find nothing.
What if Jane Doe was killed together with a significant other, as a couple, but this body was never found, also weighted down?
Lake Pontchartrain Jane Doe
That seems possible. I believe there are sharks and maybe gators (although these are freshwater creatures, so I’m not sure) in the area or the body could’ve made its way out to sea.
It also makes me wonder if maybe this was planned as a murder suicide and the perp chickened out on the suicide part. But on the other hand, I think strangulation, and weighing down the murdered person’s body, would be a pretty unusual MO for that type of crime.
There use to be a Kmart and a Sears in Slidell. I did ask my brother in law to.see if he could get me some info on her case. Waiting....
