All of the stories reported here are tragic, but what happened to this Teen Jane Doe is heartbreaking. On September 13, 1975, a motorist saw something strange while driving by Artesia Boulevard and Wilmington Avenue in Compton, California. A young woman was thrown from a moving vehicle before the car sped off. Concerned, the motorist found a security guard at a business nearby to alert them of what they’d just witnessed. Police were called to the scene.
Investigators would later find out that the girl, who was between 14 and 17-years-old, had been shot twice in the head. Although the injuries had rendered her unconscious, the trauma from being dumped from the vehicle is what is said to have killed her. She was also naked, but there were reportedly no signs of sexual assault. There were toxicology tests completed and no alcohol or drugs were found in her system.
Decades later and no one has come forward to identify the teenager.
There are a number of artist renderings and I’ve included two in this report. According to The Doe Network, Teen Jane Doe No. 51 is described as being 4 feet 11 inches to 5 feet 2 inches tall and 90 to 110 pounds. She had short, black, curly hair and brown eyes. She had a 1 to 1.5-inch scar on the instep of the left foot. Although she wasn’t wearing any clothing, Jane Doe No. 51 was found with a gold ring with a large black stone and inside of the black stone was a gold-colored flower. She also had a silver or white metal ring with a white stone center and six more green stones along the outside. There was also a gold bracelet, a white metal or silver bracelet, and a white metal or silver keychain necklace.
Anyone with information regarding this mystery is urged to contact L.A. Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by texting “TIPLA” plus the tip to 274637 (CRIMES).
Please share this story to reignite the investigation into the murder of Teen Jane Doe No. 51. She is our sister and her life matters.

It is believed that she was a victim of late serial killer Samuel Little. He confessed to killing her before he died in 2020.
Samuel Little confessed to killing over 90 women and authorities believe that Escatawpa Jane Doe was one of them.

She was petite, possibly wearing a wig, had a gold front tooth, and was the victim of a homicide, although police never determined a cause of death. (more…)
