    Sorry to quote myself, but ooooops! I just looked back through the whole thread and saw that I mentioned Edrel, along with others, much earliers. Sorry...poor memory!

    I submitted her to the DNA Doe Project and I'm so overjoyed that she's pending. I am really hopeful that this woman can at least get her name back.

    On another note, the case of Marianne Bowers stood out to me. There are tons of similarities: height, her age is just above the estimated age, she had a full set of dentures, and honestly, the VCJD morgue photos and the photo of Marianne look similar. Very curious, although the dates don't line up: however, if it is a family member, like her son, maybe he didn't report her missing until after she had passed?

    The Doe Network: Case File 941DFAZ

    Fingers crossed that Vernon County Jane Doe is identified... I'll be checking the DNA Doe Project daily until then!

    I wonder if this case has moved along lately? Does anyone know if Cora Andersen - of Alaska -has been submitted? The height is off, but the nose is so similar!

    I like this comparison - if the son was involved in her death, he wouldn't report it until someone else was catching on.

    UPDATE for Vernon County Jane Doe!

    Her DNA has passed sequencing and is now listed as an active case via the DNA Doe Project. Research is in PROGRESS! I am hopeful now more than ever that this woman will get her name back. Until then, we wait.

    @stephgphillips I am very curious about the Marianne Bowers case, whether she is connected to VCJD or not. The whole story does not make any sense. I would not be surprised in the least if VCJD was identified as Marianne Bowers.

    If VCJD is indeed Marianne then it’s possible that she could have done something that perhaps, got her fingerprints, hence the hands being cut at the wrists.

    From DDP's Facebook page:

    "DNA Doe Project Case Announcement: Vernon County Jane Doe – Westby, Wisconsin (1984)

    Status:
    Genealogical research is in progress.

    Who was Vernon County Jane Doe?
    On May 4, 1984 three teenagers found the body of an unidentified white female on a gravel road in rural Vernon County near Westby, Wisconsin. Investigators believe the woman was killed somewhere along the same road and moved to the spot where she was found. Her face had been rendered unrecognizable from the extensive damage that had been done through blunt force trauma. Her hands had been removed, presumably in an effort to prevent identification by fingerprints.
    After the case was featured on the local news, a couple came forward and stated they saw a suspicious man in the area driving a yellow 1982 Datsun, but investigators were unable to locate the man, or to identify the deceased.

    NamUs: UP4786
    Date found: May 4, 1984
    Race: White/Caucasian
    Sex: Female
    Age: 50 to 65 years
    PMI: 24 to 48 hours
    Location: Westby, Wisconsin

    Anyone who believes they have relevant information on this case should contact authorities directly:

    Wisconsin Department of Justice
    Joe Welsch, Special Agent
    715-839-3830

    She resembles the UID, however, Cora has hazel eyes while the VCJD has blue eyes, great finding though!
