4 famous Doe cases solved in the same week? 2021 sure blesses us with its generosity!
Yes, it is crazy! A very good beginning of 2021, we all needed some good news! Actually according to the latest news the DNA Doe Project identified around 48 Does but only 34 of them were officially announced as identified (in a few cases the names were withheld), so at least 14 more identified but not announced, all of these announcements can happen in 2021. I hope Old Oak Doe is one of them.
Also gone from the The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences UID listing.
I just emailed a HC forensic anthropologist, this decedent has been identified.
OMG!! Back to back to back! It’s starting to get more difficult to keep up, which is a HUGE BLESSING!
Thanks for doing that! Now we wait...
This is AMAZING!!!!!!! Thank you for the update! Do we have a name?
Unfortunately not, I asked her if an announcement will be made in the future and she hasn't responded yet. I didn't ask for the decedent's name, the family must be going through a lot right now.
Here was her response "Thank you for your inquiry. This decedent has been identified"
I'm thrilled to see this decedent going home. I hope whoever did this will get what's coming.
I'm very sorry for their family. Even if they keep the Doe's name private, I'm just happy they're going home.
Thank you for verifying it with the forensic anthropologist!
I am wondering if they were identified after the Gedmatch changes..
Was this in response to whether there will be announcement, or your original query?
In any case, amazing news that they were able to make a positive ID. Especially considering how distant the matches initially seemed to be.
I asked if there would be announcement after I asked if there had been a positive ID
According to the DDP facebook page (updates on the pinpost) they have been identified but the details are withheld. Most importantly, they are identified and and I really hope justice will be restored. Rest in power, beautiful soul!
I thought murder victims were always publicly named eventually? Possibly LE are taking time to explore this person's life and whether they had anyone in their life who could be a suspect.
Yes, as I understand, if a unidentified murder victim gets its name back, LE usually releases the name so leads can come in.
Maybe a Press Conference is due to be announced.
Transdoe task force also published an update which says Live Oak Doe was identified but the name is withheld... It is only mentioned that they were identified by DDP using forensic geneology
On Namus their official cause of death was cardiac arrest, make no sense to me! I thought it is possible to say if a person was strangled and it was the cause of their death.
Thank you for going the extra mile!!! <3
