    She’s in sequencing still. Probably is going to take a while and might not work since they have a low quantity.

    Hello everyone!

    There’s a good update from DDP. Orange Socks’s DNA has passed the sequencing stage and is now in bioinformatics, which is the last step before being put into the GEDMatch system. We’re so close!

    Update from DDP:

    "DNA Doe Project Case Announcement: Orange Socks Jane Doe – Georgetown, Texas (1979)

    Status:
    Our coordination with the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office on the Orange Socks Jane Doe case began in May 2018. However, it took nearly a year to obtain sufficient DNA with which to proceed. Early this past April HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology received her extract for Whole Genome Sequencing, and our bioinformatics expert received Orange Socks' files on 7 June. We expect to deliver her case to our DNA Doe Project volunteers for genealogical analysis in the next few days.

    Who was Orange Socks Jane Doe?
    On 31 October 1979, a passerby discovered the nearly naked body of a woman lying face-down in a concrete water drainage channel along I-35 in Georgetown, Williamson County, Texas (located north of Austin). The victim had been sexually assaulted and strangled. Authorities nicknamed her “Orange Socks” due to her apparel.
    The unidentified woman had shoulder-length brown hair, hazel eyes, pierced ears, and a scar under her chin. Along with the pair of orange socks, she also wore a sterling silver ring set with a stone similar to mother-of-pearl. Authorities placed the woman's age between 15 and 30 years of age and estimated her to be approximately 5'8” to 5'10” tall, weighing around 140 to 160 pounds. Authorities also noted that the victim's teeth were well-maintained, although evidence of dental work or cavities was unapparent and two teeth were absent.

    In 1982, Henry Lee Lucas, a confessed serial killer, told authorities that he was responsible for her death. However, Lucas later retracted his confession.

    The woman known only as “Orange Socks” was laid to rest in a cemetery in Georgetown, Williamson County, Texas with a marker that simply says “Unidentified Woman.”

    New sketch released in 'orange socks' cold case in Williamson County
    June 27, 2019
    WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas — Investigators are hoping a new sketch in a cold case will finally result in some answers.

    Her body was found along Interstate 35 near Georgetown on Halloween Day in 1979. She was wearing only a pair of orange socks at the time.

    This is the new sketch just created by a forensic artist for the Williamson County Sheriff's Cold Case Unit.

    [​IMG]
    In January, investigators made a new discovery in this cold case, saying that preliminary forensic evidence testing on DNA found on the victim's orange socks revealed two or more male contributors.

    One of my top 5 all time most followed cases. It will be 40 year this year so it's time to close it and give her her name back. I'm so curious to find out who she was.

    Niki Diane Britten was 5'4 while Jane Doe was much taller - 5'8” to 5'10”. As per dental records Niki had some decay on her teeth before she went missing and Jane Doe teeth were "perfect" and without any dental work when found.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    While on the darker photo of Nicky I do see some resemblance, on her regular photo one without glasses where shape of her face and importantly eyebrows are visible, I do not.

    I personally would not call it in but choice is yours.

    OR - OR - Niki Britten, 15, Albany, 16 July 1969

    I don't think he gets here much these days; he's working and helping DNA Doe Project

    It doesn't hurt to get the rule in/out
