Thanks for the update.
OT: Marzi, I adore your profile picture!
I wonder how much money they will need?
Well I think one round of sequencing costs around $1500 and extracting from bone is $750 I think... so about $2250 which is a lot for a second attempt
Maybe they will use leftover funds to try her again in the future.
I’m hoping they try her again. They should probably post about her for Doe Fund Me, or just make a large post on the Facebook page. Maybe some more reconstructions or a giant post about her case. Does she have a Facebook page (or do any of us have a giant General one to raise awareness)? We should be looking down so many different avenues.
You got to hand it to the DDP crew and their persistence!
I've tried to spread information + attention via various social media, especially my Fb page, which have a considerable large following, but these particular posts aren't even close to reach out to same amount of people like an average post about nothing, I'm afraid
When that is said, I haven't really seen that many academic or science pages posting about the science of DNA and genealogy to identify does, which should actually be right up their alley.
My feeling is they will probably try again when they have lots of leftover donations from a 'high profile' doe case like EDJD
Hi my name is Bethany. I’m best known online as Duchess of the moon. I was doing research for a documentary series I’ve been working on about unsolved crimes and creepy things in Oregon.
I came across Annie Doe a few months ago and I’ve never had a case hit me as hard as this one. I’ve lived in Oregon for the last past 20 years and never knew about this Jane Doe.
To try to get the word out to bring Annie home I painted a watercolor portrait of her in my own style and entered it into my country fair with the information on the picture hoping that maybe someone would recognize her!
There’s something about Annie that makes my heart hurt so much for her! And after reading all 27 pages here I can see how many other people care about Annie as much as I do.
Duchess, that is so beautiful. Both the sentiment and the drawing!!!! And what a GREAT idea to put it in the county fair! It would be fantastic if the right person would see it.
Hey there! I live in Oregon too! Where in Oregon are you? I’m in Portland, getting ready to move to Happy Valley!
I'm hoping DDP can identify her and get her name but, but I'm also hoping we can find out what the initials on her ring stood for.
Duchess, that watercolor is wonderful. I think if anybody who knew her saw it, they would recognize her. Thank you for doing that!
I agree, Carbuff
According to Margaret Press, some of the award money rewarded to the Apache Junction Police Department will go to fund Annie Doe's new DNA extraction

MI - MI - Sylvia Torgow, 18, Plymouth, 17 Sept 1970
Missing Person Case
Good find. She certainly looks possible.
Sylvia's features definitely resemble the reconstruction closely, minus blond hair instead of auburn. I wish there were more information about Sylvia online; she seems so young to be in jail, with multiple known aliases. Interestingly, I can find absolutely no reference to her at other sources. There are prominent Torgows in both Michigan and Florida, but no reference to Sylvia. Is it possible that Sylvia Torgow was her married name, or yet another alias? I considered the possibility of Sylvia Campbell, the most similar to her own name, but I didn't really have any luck with that, either. I assume most, if not all, of the other names were associated with her credit card fraud.
I have already sent this to Oregon ME Dr. Vance, and CC’d a copy to Torgow’s case manager. I submitted this as a possibility should DDP not have a good file to work with.
Update from DDP:
DNA Doe Project
Her second extraction is complete! Things are looking up!
I'm jumping up and down!!
Way to go, DDP!
