    Here is Jennifer Joyce Barton's information:

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/535dftx.html

    While searching on the web for other unidentified's, I came across this one:

    It is located here: http://www.lacountymurders.com/unidentified_victims.cfm
    Case #077-08142-1690-011
    (NOTE: There are some pictures of other unidentified that are "deceased" photos - they aren't reconstructions. This Jane Doe has a reconstruction, not an actual picture.)

    INFORMATION WANTED​
    On 07-06-77, the above unidentified victim was located at the rear of
    A&H Paint Company, 13124 Figueroa Street, Carson. She was
    wearing a one-piece red jump suit with red shoulder straps that were
    criss-crossed in the front. She was also wearing a white Gabardine
    waist jacket and a blue open-toed wedge with a Rafia sole in her right
    foot, tied around the ankle by a single white shoelace. Her left shoe
    was missing. She wore a 14-inch long turquoise Indian-styel necklace
    made of beads of silver tubes on thread with a single turquoise nugget.
    The victim was estimated to be 20 years of age. She had an old 1-inch
    scar on her chin. The image above shows what the victim may have
    looked like in life. Some elements, such as hairstyle, are the artist’s
    estimations to complete the image and should not be used as
    significant markers for identification.


    I sent an e-mail off to the LAcountymurders website and received a personal response back. They saw similarities and are passing the information along to the Detective handling the case. I will keep everyone updated.

    Nice job Ohwell!

    I think this one might be a possibility also. It is from the same link you posted above.

    http://www.lacountymurders.com/wanted/compton_coldcase.htm

    She was found in 1975 and the picture is a computer assisted rendering. Maybe your contact will check both of them out?

    Skip this one - Jennifer did not go missing until 1976. I don't know what I was thinking... I thought it said 1971.

    I got another e-mail from the LA Police Dept...a different detective - the one that is actually handling this case. He said he will keep me informed of the outcome - one way or another. I'm thinking the similarities must be close enough to have one detective see an e-mail and actually pass it on to another.

    I am keeping Jennifer's family in my thoughts and praying for closure on this one. It's just been too long.

    Update: Received a reply back...the UID is NOT Jennifer.

    I'll continue to look.

    I thought she looked more like DOE Network Case File 475UFTX, I noticed that they did not estimate the time of death as being recent, only the date she was discovered. :mad: They did not give any detailed information, but I was wondering if the person doing the reconstruction had a reason for making her hair look the way it does in the drawing. Wish they had more info. Some of the facial features look similar.
