    Thanks @Awsi Dooger. We do work in Las Vegas. Most recently:
    After 32 years, Stephanie Isaacson's Killer is Identified

    We appreciate you sharing this list of John and Jane Does. We will ask and see if we can help work some of these.

    I think Barbara Rae Venter is working on AGJD, big ones I can think of are the Cheerleader in the Trunk, Lady of the Dunes and Princess Doe

    I'd be very elated to see Princess Doe identified. There's a short HBO documentary on her and you could see that the main detective on the case was emotionally invested. I hope he's still alive to see it solved.

    Btw, I've noticed that these NCMEC cases are being solved more and more lately. Are they pushing for their cases to be solved? Jolaine Hemmy was another famous case they worked on so I'm curious if there's more stuff in the pipeline.

    New Jersey kind needs an introduction into genealogoy too, New York and Maryland have recently been introduced, but New Jersey and Massachussetts are big states with a lot of cases still.

    Delafield John Doe seems like it's one that could be easily solvable with genealogy given there's a possible targeted location of where that decedent grew up. Would love to see him finally get to go home.
    Madison Chimney John Doe is another one that I would really like to see solved.

    Delafield JD is already being worked on by the DNA Doe Project, it’d be amazing to see him identified this year

    I am so glad to hear that - some of the police departments in this area with UID's seem to be hesitant with regards to involving genealogy and I feared Delafield would be similar.

    This is some fascinating work that y’all do! Thank y’all so much for caring

    Long overdue, fingers crossed.

    St. Louis Jane Doe, Bitter Creek Betty, Sheridan (WY) Jane Doe, Miss X, Fond du Lac Jane Doe, One-Eyed Jack (Alaska - Eklutna Annie is already underway) and Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee are others that come to mind. I'm hopeful that many, if not all that I (and you) have listed are underway, or discussions have been had. These last few years have certainly seen so many popular Doe cases solved, let's hope everything keeps rolling on.

    I'm interested to see what unknown cases start to pick up traction now that famous cases are getting solved.
