    I could understand withholding the name until the next of kin are notified, but in that case, you don't announce that you have identified her to the press.

    It would seem that if they want to solve the murder, releasing the name might bring forward some useful information or clues.

    It could also clue in whoever did it that they're onto them, it's common that information isn't released until a conviction is made or someone is charged, it's what happened with Mary Silvani and Dana Dodd.

    Another scenario I've seen is that finding the person's identity pretty much reveals the murderer, often a spouse or parent. The name is withheld so as to avoid tipping off the murderer, who might try to destroy evidence or more likely flee (or kill themselves) before they can be arrested. It takes time to build a case suitable for prosecution.

    Hey! I haven't seen anything new regarding her case,
    no updates from the DDP and DPD.

    IF DPD has spoken with family and IF that family doesn't want anything made public, there won't be any news.

    There will be as it's a homicide case, they're legally obligated to share the name. They may have a potential suspect that they're after.

    they aren't legally obligated to release anything that might impact the investigation. We could be waiting awhile to get a name FYI

    I just meant once the case is solved or they can release information without it impacting the case, they can only hold the name under family request if it's not a homicide.

    In most cases, when it’s a homicide investigation and the victim was an UID. The name is released in a press conference/social media post.

    I think that we’d eventually find out, maybe they can’t release it due to confirmation of her identity, or perhaps the father’s DNA of her baby.

    When it comes to this case, I think of Evelyn’s case (Beth Doe). The identification was made months ago and it was released once they tracked down the father by DNA.

    Hoping for Detroit Jane Doe’s case to be solved soon!

    I hope that law enforcement is actively working on a homicide investigation and won't drop it even if the family wants it all to go away.

    Linda House was suggested a while back:

    TX - TX - Linda House, 29, 8 months pregnant, Dallas, 8 Nov 1985

    Obviously, I don't know how precise the "recent" description of this victim's childbirth may be?

    (Is there a prize for Convoluted Sentence Structure?)

    Mostly, I'd like to know that the baby is is a healthy adult now....

    Like a member mentioned a few posts ago, I hope LE is actively working on this case, even if maybe family members are hoping it will all just disappear. I hope someone who was close to this lady cares enough about her to be checking in with investigators on the progress. I have no idea who she was and care very much, and am also hoping her child is safe and well

    Thank you for bringing this lady's case to attention. I had a look about her disappearance and she has an active Facebook page run by. i think , family member and as per that page, she has never been found sadly, so it looks like she's not Harper Jane doe

    I noticed the mention of Missing in Michigan within your avatar -- is it known that the baby is grown now & OK???

    Just not specifically public knowledge?

    Is there more you'd like to tell us -- but out of respect for the family are keeping quiet?
