This is yet another unfortunate case of a young girl reportedly snatched from the street. It was the morning of January 8, 1980, when six-year-old Kelly Juanita Staples left her home in Chicago, Illinois and made her way to school. It was only a three-block walk, but somewhere along the way, Kelly went missing.

Years later, a man accused of murder claimed to have killed Kelly. He also confessed to the slayings of a number of other girls. However, authorities learned that his confession was just a hoax. Nothing he claimed was true and he was no longer considered to be a suspect. Kelly’s case remains unsolved and police believe that she was abducted by a person outside of her family.

At the time of her disappearance, Kelly was 3 feet tall and 42 pounds. She has black/dark brown hair, brown eyes, and a birthmark on the left-middle area of her chest. Kelly was reportedly last seen wearing a brown and white striped cap, brown scarf, red plaid coat, blue jeans, and blue rubber boots. She would be 46-years-old at the time of this publication.

It was there that he came across the remains of a young woman—later named Milwaukee Jane Doe—floating between two metal barrels on the pier. Medical examiners did their best to pull identifiers with the hopes of finding out who she may be, but in the decades that have followed, authorities don’t seem any closer to learning Jane Doe’s name.
