Officials haunted by cold cases New network could help discover identities

May 17, 2008
Muskogee Phoenix, OK
By Elizabeth Ridenour

Jane Doe was buried in 2006 under a large oak tree in a very peaceful spot in New Hope Cemetery near Hulbert. Her true identity may be a mouse click away for someone. Doe was discovered April 27, 2006.

Muskogee County Sheriff Charles Pearson hopes the Doe Network, a network of people on the Internet, can help discover the unknown woman’s identity.

“I think it’s a heck of a deal,” Pearson said. “There’s another sister site to it, and we’re going to put it on both of them.”

The Doe Network, the International Center for Unidentified and Missing Persons, “is a volunteer organization devoted to assisting law enforcement in solving cold cases concerning unexplained disappearances and unidentified victims from North America, Australia and Europe,” according to the Web site.

“It is our mission to give the nameless back their names and return the missing to their families. We hope to accomplish this mission in three ways; by giving the cases exposure on our Web site, by having our volunteers search for clues on these cases, as well as making possible matches between missing and unidentified persons, and lastly, through attempting to get media exposure for these cases that need and deserve it.”

Pearson hopes someone will recognize Muskogee County’s Jane Doe.

“We’re going to get the information on there as soon as possible,” Pearson said.

Jane Doe was found in Muskogee County in a ditch about one-half mile west of Ross Road, two miles south of Interstate 40 near Webbers Falls by a motorist. She was barefoot and clutching a bloody towel across her lower abdomen. Another bloody towel was on the ground beside her. The only noticeable sign of trauma was a tremendous amount of vaginal bleeding. The medical examiner's office determined that the woman was pregnant, and the cause of her death was massive loss of blood, and was estimated to be 25 to 35 years old and of American Indian, Hispanic or Asian descent. She was about 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighed from 135 to 140 pounds, and had collar-length, dark hair. She had a scar on her right shin that showed suture marks. Although she was wearing no jewelry, both ears had been pierced twice.

She was wearing a long-sleeved, white, turtleneck shirt and dark blue running pants with white stripes on the pants leg.

Tim Brown, who was an investigator with the sheriff’s department at the time, believes the woman may have been an illegal immigrant from Mexico. Brown is now the Webbers Falls chief of police. He lives near I-40 and on Monday was surprised to find a pickup loaded with 19 illegal immigrants in his driveway. Now, he’s wondering if Jane Doe may not have died during a cross-country trip similar to that of the 19 people jailed this

Muskogee County Jane Doe, Discovered Deceased in Oklahoma in 2006.

This is an artistic reconstruction of the Muskogee County Jane Doe:





Jane Doe was found on April 27th, 2006 in Webbers Falls, Oklahoma. Her remains were located by a passerby in a ditch on the side of a country, gravel road 1/2 a mile from Ross Road. Her autopsy revealed that Jane was pregnant and likely died from massive blood loss. There were no obvious signs of trauma or assault. It is believed Jane was already dead when her body was placed in the ditch and that she had been there since about midnight. Authorities ran her fingerprints but there were no hits.

Jane doe was approximately 20 to 40 years old, and was 5'3 and 149 pounds. She had brown hair and brown eyes. Both of her ears are pierced at least twice with a scar on her chin that had visible suture marks. She wears a bridge to replace one upper right tooth.

If you have any information regarding the identity of Muskogee County Jane Doe, you are encouraged to contact the OK OCME at 918-295-3400.
Tribal Information: As Jane Doe is unknown so are her people. Jane Doe is though to be White with possible Native American or Greek admixture.

Does an Oklahoma Jane Doe have ties to N.M.?

By Joline Gutierrez Krueger / Journal Staff Writer
Published: Thursday, September 19th, 2013 at 11:15pm
Updated: Friday, September 20th, 2013 at 9:40am

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. The flowers were fresh last Memorial Day, not frayed and faded from weather and neglect like so many of the wilted, worn bouquets dotting the green hillsides of New Hope Cemetery near Hulbert, Okla.

Which to December Spearman meant somebody still cared about the woman buried there under a big oak tree.

And yet no one knew who that woman was.

On the headstone, she is Jane Doe, found April 27, 2006, in forevers peaceful sleep, known only to God, loved by strangers, buried Aug. 19, 2006.

Online
The Doe Network: doenetwork.org.
West Mesa women: Submit tips to APD 118th Street Task Force at 1-877-765-8273 or 768-2450 or Detective Ida Lopez at ilopez@cabq.gov or Crime Stoppers at 843-STOP.

In the center of the headstone is an image of the womans face, pretty and young, framed with dark hair, eyes closed, lips curled in a vague smile.

I realized, Spearman said, that she was dead in that photo.

Spearman, a criminal justice student from nearby Tahlequah, couldnt shake the image of the woman with the vague smile. Who was she, she wondered. Who knew her?

So I decided to try to find out, she said.

Spearman started reading old news articles about Jane Doe and women who disappeared in general (which eventually led her to me, but more on that later). What she discovered shed little light on the womans life but some on her death.

Jane Doe, the generic name she was given by law enforcement, was found dead in a ditch off Interstate 40 near Webbers Falls, about 140 miles east of Oklahoma City.

It didnt appear she had been tossed or thrown away but placed there in deliberate roadside repose, her hands neatly clasped over her chest.

She had been dead half a day by the time a passer-by saw her.

She wore a white turtleneck and dark-blue running pants with a white stripe, but no socks or shoes or jewelry, although indentations on her fingers and piercings in her ears indicated she had worn rings and earrings until recently.

In one hand she clutched a bloody paper towel, the kind used to clean windows at gas stations. Another bloody towel was found nearby. Medical examiners later determined that she had died of excessive vaginal bleeding, perhaps because of a miscarriage.

Stretch marks indicated that she had likely given birth to other children. She had a vaccination mark on her arm. She had a scar on her right shin. She was small, about 5-foot-4 and 140 pounds. She was between the ages of 25 and 40 and may have been Hispanic or Indian or possibly Asian.

No match was found to her fingerprints or DNA.

Her image was posted on various websites including the Doe Network, an international database of missing persons and her story was reported widely by Oklahoma media.

But no one could identify her. No one claimed her.

Mary Carey of Muskogee, Okla., didnt know Jane Doe. But, she told a local newspaper, she couldnt live with the idea that this lost woman would not have a proper funeral.

So four months later, she gave her one.

Weve adopted her, and shes ours now until her real family finds her, Carey told the Muskogee Phoenix.

Word of Careys generosity inspired others to contribute, too. Donations poured in for funeral expenses, flowers, the headstone and the casket. Musicians and ministers offered their services.

Its going to be a real good tribute to whoever this precious person was, Carey told the newspaper.

And it probably was.

Still, Spearman wondered who Jane Doe was. Eventually, she found an old 2009 column of mine about the women who disappeared in Albuquerque, 11 of them later unearthed from shallow graves on a mesa near 118th Street and Dennis Chavez SW.

Thats about 700 miles from where Jane Doe was found in 2006 a year after the women stopped disappearing.

Still, Spearman wondered: She is pretty and young like many of the women buried on the West Mesa. And the West Mesa site is not far from Interstate 40, the highway near where Jane Doe was found.

Could this be a woman who, at least for a while, got away?

Now I am not claiming that she is any of these women, but there are resemblances, Spearman said. The possibility is there.

Well, yes, but no. Albuquerque police spokeswoman Tasia Martinez said there is no reason to believe Jane Doe is connected to the West Mesa investigation which, she added is still active, though there is no new releasable information.

I realized after speaking with Spearman that it had been ages since anybody had asked me about the West Mesa women, ages since Id asked about them.

People disappear, sometimes without a trace. The Doe Network website lists 23 missing persons from New Mexico alone eight John Does and 15 Jane Does.

Spearman said she plans to keep searching for the identity of Jane Doe. We, too, should keep asking questions about what happened to the women on the West Mesa, to all the missing people.

Like laying fresh flowers on a grave implies, its important never to forget.
