Cook County Jane Doe 2016 Found Skeletonized In “Unsecure Home”

Very little has been shared about her case.



Cook County Jane Doe 2016 Illinois

There doesn’t seem to be any investigating agencies looking into this case, but I believe that the story involving this unidentified woman in Cook County, Illinois deserves to be highlighted. This article may be brief, but it goes to show just little is often shared and reported on, and frequently, these cases become lost in the abyss as time moves forward. There isn’t much known about Cook County Jane Doe 2016, as I’ve named her, but here is what I could gather from only one agency that has listed her report.

If you’re a loyal reader of Our Black Girls, then you’re already familiar with NamUs, the National Missing & Unidentified Persons. It’s a government database with a comprehensive, yet incomplete list of cases from the United States and its territories, and while searching for information, I came across this woman who was found deceased in Illinois back on September 13, 2016. The exact location is unknown.

NamUs reports that Cook County Jane Doe 2016 was found deceased inside of an “unsecure home.” It was clear that she had been there for some time because the outlet stated that she was a “near complete or complete skeleton.” Information regarding how her body was found and the condition of the home wasn’t listed in the report. I did attempt to look into this case but after searching through multiple agencies, it doesn’t look as if a news outlet covered this case. If they did, their report isn’t readily accessible at the time of this publication.

Because of the condition of the remains, the medical examiner concluded that Cook County Jane Doe 2016  may have been under or around 60-years-old and was approximately 5 feet tall. However, her hair color and eye color are a mystery. It doesn’t looks as if her manner of death was determined, but that could have changed since NamUs first reported on her case.

Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact Kristin Escobar Alvarenga, Medicolegal Death Investigator for the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office at (312) 997-4500. The ME/C Case Number is 2016-4451.

Kierra Coles: Pregnant Postal Worker Missing From Chicago Since 2018

In July 2020, relatives of Kierra Coles received devastating news from authorities. Two years prior, the 26-year-old went missing from Chicago, Illinois, and after investigating her case, investigators decided to put a halt on progressing forward. “The case is classified as suspended, meaning the case cannot proceed further at this time. That can happen for a variety of reasons, including detectives exhausting all leads at this time. It is not a permanent status and it can be changed if more information is made available,” police said in a statement last year. It was a blow for Kierra’s loved ones who have taken on the investigation themselves as they attempt to figure out what happened to the postal worker who was three months pregnant when she disappeared.
