    Yes, buttocks hints at the same to me. But the turtle could be anything really - an inside joke, a nickname, a place, mascot...

    Could the text of the tattoo be "CuStis Lee" by any chance?

    Information about the name "Curtis":

    http://www.parents.com/baby-names/curtis/

    And "Lee":

    http://www.parents.com/baby-names/lee/

    Note that Lee is particularly popular as a middle name. IMHO it's more likely the UID had his first and middle name tattooed, especially if he used them both as a sort of extended first name, than his first and last. The latter seems a bit formal but I might be wrong.

    There was a male UID found in Severn Danza Park in 1985, ten miles from the alley where this Jane Doe was left. He is still listed as unidentified in NamUs and Doe Network, but per the article below he was identified sometime between 2009 and 2011 as Curtis Jones, a convicted offender. It's a long shot, but could his middle name have been Lee? He of course couldn't have had anything to do with Jane Doe's death but he could have been someone she was dating before he disappeared.

    It's always so mind boggling to me that people with tattoos of other people's names often go unidentified.

    I wonder if it's her pimp's doing. It'd be interesting to know if there are any streets or pimps with the name 'Curtis Lee.'


    Use of tattoos

    Many pimps tattoo prostitutes as a mark of "ownership". The tattoo will often be the pimp's street or even his likeness. The mark might be as discreet as ankle tattoo, or blatant as a neck tattoo, or large scale font across the prostitute's lower back, thigh, chest, or buttocks.

    A turtle would be an interesting choice for a pimp branding tattoo. Also, wouldn't it be the pimps "pimp" name? Curtis Lee sounds like a real name.

    It's common for people to put their high school, college, sorority or fraternity, or other social affiliation on their butt. There used to be a running joke about the elder President Bush's Princeton Tiger.

    Miscellaneous research:

    The only other college besides Maryland I could find that uses a turtle mascot is Beloit, in Wisconsin. The Turtle Mound, a prehistoric native American structure, is on campus behind the library. There's also a Terrapins swim team in Texas. They're a private team for younger kids.

    Maryland's terrapin is nearly always shown standing on his rear legs, in a fighting pose. (His name is Testudo, by the way.) But when this woman would have been in college, the mascot stood in a considerably less aggressive pose: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/ehaxpyhlffe9ffde9ju6 But no version I could find looks like Jane's turtle.

    It does sound like a real name but I wonder if a pimp would put his full name on a hooker. Maybe his first and middle name? I would imagine that law enforcement looked into any and all people named Curtis Lee. I would look at pimps with the first and middle name of Curtis and Lee respectively.

    Okay, how about Lisa Marie Sexton? http://doenetwork.org/cases/4dfoh.html
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/7083/0/

    She left home in 1981 with her boyfriend, a known drug dealer, and was last heard from in 1984 in Tampa, FL. She was 14 then, which would make her about 20 when Jane was found.

    Lisa has red hair and blue eyes
    Jane has red hair and gray eyes -- close.

    They both have freckles.

    Lisa was 5'8" and 125 lbs when she left home.
    Jane was 5'6" and 138 lbs -- height's in range, weight gain possible.

    Jane's DNA is available but not submitted yet according to Namus, so it's not an automatic ruleout.

    negative: Lisa has a scar of unspecified size on her cheek that isn't mentioned in Jane's descriptions. Other scars could have been acquired after she left home.

    I suppose it's possible the might use their real name but it seems odd since pimps don't want their girls to know their real names. They use they nicknames to keep the girls from knowing who they really are.

    While I wouldn't want to rule out the possibility of it being a pimp's stamp, there's no reason to think it is, either.

    What do you think about Shannon Potter?
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/1868/0/

    The age is off by quite a bit, and the eye color difference of gray vs brown, and the hair color of auburn vs brown. But everything else seems to match up, including the scar on the abdomen.

    The left photo is Shannon, center is the same recon we already had for the UID, and the right photo is a new recon. Overall, I don't think the new recon looks as much like Shannon as the old one, but the old one's nose looked different from Shannons, while I think the new one's looks more similar to Shannon's.

    I first became aware of this Jane Doe through this YouTube video. It has some extra information.

    That is interesting, thanks for posting it! I wonder if she was injured/sick when she was dropped off there, or if something happened afterwards?

    I decided to take a long shot and submitted Shannon as a PM. I know the age is really far off (Shannon would have been 16, UID min. age was 24) but to me they look eerily similar - then when I saw they both had the abdominal scar, it kept bugging me. I'll update if I hear anything.

    I wish we knew what kind of business card the UID had.

    Nice work as always, Carl.

    Maybe just a little less blue around the lips.

    Just noticed that the address 4809 Pennington Ave in Baltimore is only a couple of blocks inland from Curtis Bay.

    Curtis Bay is home of the US Coast Guard per wiki. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curtis_Bay,_Baltimore

    It also says there is a large Polish community there. Could she be Polish and maybe the family wasn't aware of how to file a missing person's report?
