When the unidentified are found with no information their person, experts do their best at providing educated guesses regarding the victim’s physical appearance. Height, weight, ethnic background, as well as other details, are compiled to help figure out who the unidentified person may be. For decades, investigators have hoped that someone will come forward with information about Jane Doe Detroit.
Unfortunately, many Does go unclaimed, and such is the case of a young woman found in Detroit back in 1967. On September 30 of that year, a woman was reportedly located in an alleyway behind 3613 Liddesdale Street. Her death was listed as a homicide, however, her cause of death has not been made public.
It was determined that Jane Doe Detroit had been recently murdered so her facial features were clear and identifiable in her post-mortem photo (included in the heading of this post). Yet still, in five decades since her death, no one has come forward to claim the woman’s remains.
It’s believed that Jane Doe Detroit was somewhere between 18 to 22-years-old and she stood five feet four inches tall. Her dark brown/black hair was styled in a short afro and she had brown eyes. She had a thin frame and was approximately 105 pounds. There were stretch marks on her abdomen, an old healed vertical line scar on her right shin that was said to be under her knee
The young lady was wearing a white wool cardigan and a bright red sleeveless dress that fell above the knee with white fishnet stockings. She also had on a short pink peacoat and one black cloth shoe that was size eight. Her dental information and fingerprints are on file, but her DNA reportedly is not.
Anyone with information regarding this case or who may think they know this woman who met an unfortunate fate is urged to contact their non-emergency local authorities or the Detroit Police Department at (313) 267-4600 or their local authorities.
Please share this story about Jane Doe Detroit to help reignite the investigation into her murder case. She is our sister and her life matters.
