    Jane 'Arroyo Grande' Doe cold case open 35 years later

    Williams has been watching out for Jane “Arroyo Grande” Doe since the day he found her body while serving as a Henderson police officer.

    "I was on my day off,” Williams remembers. “It was a Sunday, October 5, 1980."

    It was 9:20 p.m. along a once-dirt road near the Arroyo Grande Wash.

    "Nothing was incorporated out there at the time," Williams says. "She was laying there, posed basically, and nude."

    Williams saw the different faces of death.

    "She had been struck numerous times in the face, apparently with fists. And then in the back of the head with what appeared to be a roofing or framing hammer. And then stabbed with a two-pronged instrument in the back."

    I wonder if she was a victim of Serial Killer Stephen Morin. He had 3 Victims in 1981, but it is estimated he could have been suspected in at least 30 murders or crimes... Not sure which. Although murdered toward the end of 1980, She fits the profile of many of his victims and suffered a similar fate as well. The crude "S" etched into her arm caught me. Made me wonder if S could stand for "Stephen" - as if it were a brand of sorts. Sick I know, but these power hungry monsters sometimes brand victims.


    Anyhow, gonna try and find a match for her though I know I've tried before and it is a doozie of a case to work on.

    Cynthia Jabour looks a lot like her compared to the other missing women in 1981 - but then again Cynthia's picture is kind of sub par at best. She is the only missing listed in NV in 1980 remotely matching this UID and I can't find the NamUS page on her or info about DNA on her.

    Of course the age discrepancy struck me and i noticed Cynthia didn't look necessarily 41 years old to me though she was listed as 41. Turns out she could have been in her mid twenties when she was murdered, around the same age as this decedent. I found a birth record for her of 1953 with the maiden name Kahn. I think Robert Weeks used a false surname when they got married. There was also one other birthdate for a Cynthia Jabour of being 1955, even closer to the estimated birthdate of our UID. So in 1981 Cynthia would likely be in her mid-late twenties. Not 41 years old. The UID was estimated to be somewhere around the ages of 14-25.


    I don't know some things are off, but I wonder if Robert filled out the info on Cynthia's missing persons report incorrectly to throw off LE? I've often wondered this. I know usually they use your driver's license info, but what if they are relying on the murderes "recollection" of the victims vitals? If her age was off, what else could have been off as well in the report???

    I mean Cyntis even went missing in NV in October around the time this UID was found!

    ^had to correct the date on this to 1980 and not 1981. Must have been sidetracked when writing the info. My apologies. At any rate I'm still very interested in Cynthia Jabour as a match.

    I really feel like someone here needs to look up a Cynthia L. Kahn born in 1953/1954 if they have an ancestry account. Just found Jabour's namUS page and she has no picture, no DNA, no dentals!

    I think we need to find Cynthia's biological family you guys! @Kimster @Advocate @Lily @spike @Cousin Dupree @GarAndMo49 @MissyMoo @daisy7 @WindStorm and anyone else !

    Maybe then they can give up DNA to compare against the UIDs DNA to check for a match!

    Here is the marriage info for Robert Jabour (Robert Weeks) and Cynthia L Kahn.


    Can somebody with an ancestry account please help a sister out????!

    I mean you guys... Her NamUS page is poor at best. It's almost as if it the report was initially a voluntary missing persons report that was never changed to an endangered missing person when it was theorized Robert Jabour (Robert Weeks) likely murdered her. The overall vibe of her NamUS page is that she left in her car or ranaway when we KNOW she was married to a wife murdering monster Robert Weeks... Who took the alias Robert Jabour before marrying her.

    Ok so we found a birthdate for Cynthia Jabour of 1933. So Arroyo Grande Doe is not Cynthia.

    Man. I knew that would have been too easy. Harumph. :(

    Still, it is odd that Weeks would murder his fiancée in NV in October of 80 and then we find this girl in NV in October of 80. Cynthia was the only missing woman from NV in 1980. It's just strange. Makes you wonder if there was any connection between the two women, though it's likely there isn't.

    Back to square 1. Who are you Arroyo Grande Jane Doe?

    Home for a quick stop; feed the grandson, ice my back then daughter has PT, I have to head back to my Dr. Hopefully I can get rainwater over here. She is local so always looking for Arroyo. Melinda & Kimberly look familiar to me like ones she's sent me to look at for an opinion.

    I agree about Cynthia Jabour not fitting. One thing I noticed when I went to NAMPN is she does not have a gap in the top right teeth like Arroyo does. I think Arroyo is currently not listed in any database like most of our beloved Does. It very well could be that LE refused to take the report or they did, it got lost, or like Michelle Knight (Arielle Castro's victim) could have been purged when she turned 18. I do whatever I can to make sure people know that NamUs will take the person's name & make a profile without a report. They do their best to prove the person is missing then request assistance, but sadly even now some refuse like a friend of mine who's daughter was missing in TX. It ended up turning out well; the mother had gotten a new phone number (someone else owned her old cell) the daughter lost her cell so when she moved in with her new BF then found out she was expecting, she couldn't find a way to contact her mother.

    Wow @Advocate fantastic work!!!! No doubt this will help us narrow down who this Jane Doe is!

    Good point about the gap in the front teeth. It reminded me that there was one girl with a tooth gap who I passed over bc I actually thought the UID didn't have a tooth gap. How wrong I was! Time to go back and find her and see if she is listed on the rule outs!!!
