    I am hoping I’m posting this in the correct place (my first one didn’t end up in the forum it should have). Have been doing a little research on “Frankie” and came up with some interesting information. Given the circumstances of her disappearance/escape, I’m not positive what I’m allowed to post here. (I have read the rules a few times ). Maybe someone can help me out.

    She has several different aliases but I believe I’ve found her birth name, which is not included on the DOC page. I was able to verify a few marriages (accounting for several of the alias surnames), and a couple of yearbook photos. The photos clearly show some identifying features that the other does not. Her teeth, in particular!

    I’ll be happy to share a link to my Google Drive containing all I’ve found on “Frankie” if anyone would like to check over things and make sure they are 1. Accurate to the MP and 2. Authorized to be posted here! TIA!! Any guidance would be great! I’d love to be able to help create threads here on WB - I spend most of my day doing just that for my personal research. ;):D

    This one is quite an interesting case!

    Looks like she was about 6+ months into a minimum 2 year sentence when she did a runner.

    Funny her parole date is listed as Parole Date: 5/28/1974 , same as the date she escaped I assume. Paroled herself :)

    Well a different case for sure, someone missing who doesn't want to be found probably.

    Might have gone into other fraud or gone on the game to get money. Maybe worth checking Jane Doe's from Michigan second half of 1974.

    Got a feeling this young lady didn't perish though.

    I think you’re right, I’m sure she got a few years of freedom at least. She may even have a whole new list of aliases. ;)

    Something makes me think she probably eventually became a Doe. Pretty girl, I’ll be keeping an eye out!

    Additional photos would be useful. I have to I admit I laughed at a few of her aliases.

    glancing, I want to compare her to "the girl in the grey fur coat" in the Alcala thread. I see a few similarities, but also a few uncertainties. A clearer photo would be great!

    Always worth a check.

    Frankie comes across that she is more likely to have ripped Alcala off for a couple of hundred dollars and a lift to California than for Alcala to have got the better of her.

    Be good to have her family history. She was only 23 and had a long list of aliases (I'd like to know the story behind 'XXDOE') . So probably had a rough family history but might give some indication as to where she might have ran to, a significant other, kids etc.

    Speaking as a 48yo male, she seems like a attractive young lady, so if she had tried to con her way after escaping into money or help playing the damsel in distress to a guy, "please help me, I'm abandoned and have no money..." I have little doubt she would have got some help from a helpful fool.

    Bill was located 39 minutes by car (by 2019 measurements) from where Frankie escaped from 20 months earlier. So if it is Frankie, she must have stayed around Detroit area or came back.

    Measurements are close, Frankie would have had to have packed on the hamburgers for an extra 20 lbs. Frankie did however have a scar above the right eye, not mentioned in Bill's details.

    You could see Frankie when asked about herself joking about being a runaway with a rye smile.

    I can’t find anything to explain the 1978 date other than a clerical error :confused:


    Here is the link to my “Frankie Folder” on Google Drive. Fair warning, it will look someone’s shopping cart on Black Friday! Most of it is “needed” and applicable information, but you may find an item or two that was thrown in “just in case I needed it”! :cool::p

    I think Frankie may have been resident at 426 Bruce Avenue Niles, Michigan in 1969.

    There's a newspaper clipping from 30th August 1969 that mentions a Frankie Regina McGraw as having violated a temporary instruction permit. Lists her address as 426 Bruce Niles, which I take as Bruce Avenue.

    She would have been about 18 at that time.

    Re: XX Doe... if someone is brought into the jail without identification or refuse to give their name or identifying information, they’re often booked in as a Doe. They may be under the influence, uncooperative or possibly arrested in a county that they’d never been before. (Unfortunately some need no introduction when they’re arrested so frequently and taken to the same jail most of the time) I’m betting that’s how she got that alias...but who knows lol

    Love the idea of Alcala being played!

    She does resemble Bill
