    Long Beach Jane Doe (known locally as Jane Doe 40) is an unidentified murder victim whose body was found in May 1974. Her suspected murderer was arrested but she has never been identified, despite extensive investigation.

    Discovery of the body[edit]
    The strangled body of a young woman was found on May 28, 1974, on the jetty of Alamitos Beach in Long Beach, California.[1]

    She was estimated to be between 20 and 28 years old and had been raped.[2] Basic physical examination showed she was about 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighed about 118 pounds. The victim was white with possible Hispanic ancestry, as she had brown or black hair and brown eyes.[3] She also had a unique scar on the back of her left hand, which was shaped like the letter T. She also had an inch-long scar on the back of her left thigh.

    She was wearing a white gold, 14-karat engagement ring with a small diamond.[4] She was clothed in a pinkish-orange suit with a faux black fur coat and calf-high suede boots.

    The only items the Jane Doe carried were a house key and padlock key. The padlock key was attached to a broken chain.[5]

    Investigation
    [​IMG]
    An additional reconstruction
    No missing persons have been found who match the victim's description. Investigators have the girl's DNA and fingerprints.[6][7] A forensic facial reconstruction was created by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to assist with identification.[8]

    Arrest of Gary Stamp[edit]
    Police received a confession from a Texas man who claimed he had assisted with dumping the victim's body. He led authorities to another suspect.[9]

    On May 20, 2013, a man named Gary Stamp (some sources state "Stump"), aged 61, was arrested. He confessed to the girl's murder but was not certain of her name, which may have been Anna.[10] Stamp was arraigned on June 12, 2013, in Superior Court.[11]

    The victim may have been seen at a bar earlier. Stamp told police that he had met her at a bar.[12]

    Long Beach police arrest man for 1974 murder

    By Joe Segura, Staff Writer

    POSTED: 06/05/13, 12:01 AM PDT

    LONG BEACH - Homicide detectives arrested a 61-year-old man for the rape and murder of a woman in 1974 -- though they still don't know the identity of the victim.

    After reopening a cold case investigation into the identity of Jane Doe No. 40, police were led to the suspect, Gary Stamp of Long Beach, who was arrested in connection with the May 28, 1974, murder, officials announced Wednesday. The woman's body was found 39 years ago on Alamitos Beach.

    Stamp is scheduled for arraignment on June 12 in Long Beach Superior Court, according to police spokeswoman Cynthia Arrona.

    The suspect reportedly confessed to killing the woman, whose name might be "Anna," after raping and strangling her then disposing of her body on the beach. Through additional interviews, detectives believe the suspect met the woman in a bar or on the street in the downtown area, Arrona said.

    Long Beach Homicide Detectives Todd Johnson and Malcolm Evans were led to a suspect/witness living in Texas who admitted to helping Stamp dispose of the victim's body, Arrona said Wednesday. The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office will ultimately review his involvement and determine his culpability, Arrona said.

    The case originally was a candidate for funding through a National Institute of Justice "Solving Cold Cases with DNA" grant, and cold case investigators focused their attention on the backlog of unsolved homicides awaiting case review, evidence screening, and potential DNA analysis.

    However, cold case investigators were unable to locate any evidence remaining in the case that could be submitted for DNA analysis, and it appeared the case was destined to return to the cold case shelves.

    Troubled that the young woman had remained unidentified for nearly four decades and puzzled that they could not locate a missing persons report that matched Jane Doe No. 40's physical description, investigators reviewed the case file once again. However, since the case no longer met the grant criteria for further cold case investigation due to the lack of evidence suitable for DNA testing, investigators turned the case over to homicide detectives Johnson and Evans, according to the police spokeswoman.

    With the assistance of the National Center for the Missing and Exploited Children, a rendering of the victim has been made available and Long Beach Police are hopeful someone can identify the victim. She is white or Hispanic; late teens to early 20s; 5-foot-2, weighing 135 pounds with long brown hair and brown eyes. She has a scar on the top of her left hand.

    Anyone with information is urged to call 562-570-7244.

    LONG BEACH, Calif. --
    Long Beach police made an arrest in a 39-year-old cold case, but they need the public's help identifying the victim.

    Police arrested Gary Stamp on May 20 for the May 28, 1974 murder. The 61-year-old confessed to raping, killing and dumping the body on Alamitos Beach. The body was found near Alamitos Avenue and Ocean Boulevard.

    Investigators were unable to locate any evidence in the case that could be submitted for DNA analysis.

    Stamp could not provide any additional information about the victim's identity other than saying her first name might have been Anna. Detectives believe Stamp met the victim in a bar or on the street in the downtown Long Beach area.

    Authorities released a computer-generated rendering of Jane Doe No. 40. She is either white or Hispanic, was in her late teens to early 20s, 5 feet 2 inches, about 135 pounds, with long brown hair and brown eyes. She was wearing a two-piece pantsuit with a black faux-fur coat and black boots. She also had a 14k white gold ring with a small diamond solitaire. Police say she had a scar on top of her left hand.

    Anyone with information is urged to call the Long Beach Police Department Homicide Detail at (562) 570-7244, or call the Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.

    Stamp is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday in Long Beach Superior Court.

    Hi. I'm new to this site, but I've been looking into unidentified missing persons cases and I was wondering if anyone looked into the possibility that maybe this Jane Doe could be Ana Daisy Guevara Valdez. She was within the correct age range, from the same state, and went missing the same year as the Alamitos (Long Beach) Jane Doe. I think she also has a resemblance to this Jane Doe. I know it's a long shot, but I think it may be worth looking into.

    Welcome @Victoria C. ! Thanks for posting!

    :welcome:

    There are no rule-outs listed for this Jane Doe. And Ana does seem to fall into the right demographics as far as location, age, height/weight, hair/eye color.

    I wonder how old the picture of Ana is... In my opinion, their face shape and noses are pretty different.
