St. Louis Jane Doe

I'm not quite sure how I came across this case, and I won't lie...
I honestly wish I still hadn't!
However, now that I do know, I refuse to look the other way. I cannot pretend that I didn't read of a crime so horrific, that I find it nearly impossible to type out the circumstances.
The only picture I could possibly offer for St. Louis Jane Doe, is one of a blood stained sweater. There's no picture of a smiling little girl, braces, cute braids, freckles, or even twinkling eyes.

Most of what is known of Jane Doe came within days of her discovery. She was likely between the ages of eight and eleven. She was big for her age, around four-foot-ten. Without the head, she measured just over four feet. She had been raped and then strangled. Based on the lack of blood at the crime scene, police believe she was dumped in the basement after her beheading. Mold growing from the wound on her neck indicated she was there for several days before the two men found her.

Little else is known about the girl who has become the most notorious cold case in the nearly 200-year history of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

ST. Louis Jane Doe deserves a name!
She deserves a proper marker!

The body went unclaimed on a slab in the city morgue for more than a week before it was given the name Jane Doe. For nine months she lay frozen. Finally, on a glum, rainy day in December 1983, she was buried in a pauper's grave in an historic black graveyard in north St. Louis county. At the funeral were a few homicide detectives, the chief medical examiner, and a half-dozen news reporters. Four muddy gravediggers served as pallbearers.

On February 28, 1983, the headless remains of an African American female were discovered by the St. Louis Police Department. The body had no scars, deformities or irregularities. There was no specific features that would give clues as to her identity. She was approximately between 8 and 11 years of age, so her estimated year of birth would be 1972-75. Her estimated height is 4'10" and her estimated weight is 70 lbs. Her eye and hair color couldn't be determined. She was wearing the sweater pictured at right. The "DOB" and "Age Now" fields are approximations.
