    This is the first time I have seen this unidentified murder victim.

    http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/seekinfo/janedoenj.htm


    The remains of a white female were found in Buena Vista Township, New Jersey. The victim was fully clothed with her hands bound. Numerous non-lethal stab wounds were found on the body. The cause of death was asphyxiation.

    In her case histroy on doe network this is added:

    "A high concentration of sulfuric acid had been poured on victim's face and chest. "

    Clearly someone did not want her identified.

    Enough to take her out of state to dispose of her?

    This is a very strange case but it seems the lead suspect himself disappeared at some time between the disappearance of the first and second victims. On that basis, could he have been lying low elsewhere? His father, who is believed to have assisted him, moved to Arizona immediately afterward - could he have gone north to NY?

    Sure see a resemblance between the girls and there is a 33-day gap between disappearance and discovery - although the account suggests little or no decomposition.

    Wow, they sure do look alike! I wonder if she has been ruled out.

    The prime suspect in Malcolmson's case had been reincarcerated for attempting a similar crime just a couple of months afterward, i.e., before Jane Doe's fresh body was found. Of course that doesn't mean that it's not Malcolmson or that he's not involved but he definitely didn't kill her himself if that is her. Great match though.

    As for my match, I no longer think it's her either, partly because the difficulty a young suspect would have had in moving her out of state but also because Shannon only had one filling and the Doe has I think seven, if I have read the dental records correctly.

    I am working on a new UID that I just came upon on Doe Network. What I'm most struck by is the fact that her face was covered in sulphuric acid. I can't believe she hasn't been ID'd yet - someone cared for her enough to provide dental insurance to cover her orthodontic and root canal work, so she had to have had family that would report her missing. Since 16 is relatively young to have root canal work, I think she's probably on the 20something side of that age range. I'll let you know what I find...

    I am so glad to see someone post a thread on this Jane Doe as this is such a sad case...the fact that someone can go to considerable lengths to pour acid on the victims face and chest in an obvious attempt to hide JD's identity and cause of death is disgusting! Lets ID this girl and catch this killer!

    I looked at Kim Moreau too, but I thought that since she has "healed fractures", wouldn't those fractures show up on the UID?

    I considered Hazel, Darla, and Denise as well, and they all could be potential matches, but none of them really "jumped out" at me. I guess I'm looking for that one "eureka!" moment when I look at these, but I probably shouldn't be.

    the thing i liked about kim was her clothing and height, but i agree, not quite eureka.

    the other thing i wondered about is the acid. since JD is described as having a recognizable face, perhaps the acid served another purpose? revenge or to hide scars/tattoos? i remember hearing on tv a couple of different times about women whose husbands/bfs/etc splashed acid on their face to "ruin" them for other men.

    the other details also sound like overkill or rage to me...the non-lethal stab wounds, the hands bound...

    Saw this one again and decided to look a bit more. Myra http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/2105dfpa.html went missing only 50 miles from where Jane was found. Although there is a 3 year time lapse, all the other pieces seem to fit...hair, height, weight, age, even dentals seem similar. Wonder if Jane has been run through codis?
