    unidentified female in 1985 in Crescent Beach Florida


    Here is the information on her.she is a Unidentified Female Jane Doe found in Crescent Beach Florida on 4-10-85.she is a white female,between the age of 33 and 45 years old(as of 1983).She was between 5'05" and 5'07" tall.she had short to medium blond to light brown hair.In addition she had given birth to at least one full term child,during her life time.She was killed in the 1982 to 1983 time frame.Most striking and conclusive in these findings is the victim had been in some type of accident approximately1 1/2 to 2 years prior to her death.this accident caused extensive trauma to her body which resulted in numerous bone fractures in her face,torso, and legs.Most pronounced affect on her body.is that,as a result of the accident,the victim had received a Surgical craniotomy,which resulted in her having 3 burr holes in her skull which are approximately 1/2" each in diameter.This was a surgical procedure someone close to her would have to have known about.she was found in the walk over near A1A in the Dunes.Buried in the sand.
    The person who use to be on her case was a Detective Michael Quintieri of the cold case unit.#(not known if still good)904/823-8304 extention 6663.


    CRESCENT BEACH, Fla. -
    Cold Case detectives with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office are asking for the public's help in identifying remains found more than 26 years ago in a Crescent Beach sand dune.

    On April 11, 1985, workers building a dock discovered the skeletal remains and called the Sheriff's Office. The remains were located eight-tenths of a mile north of the Crescent Beach ramp, about 10 feet from the high tide level and about 2½ feet below the dune level.

    The remains were sent to the University of Florida, where an anthropological report was completed. At the time, the report indicated that the remains were possibly of a white female, about 5 feet 7inches tall, with light brown to blonde hair. The age at the time of the discovery was between 20-40 years of age, and the death occurred between one and five years prior to the discovery.

    A cause of death was unable to be determined due to the decomposition of the body at the time, but it was ruled a homicide.

    Bones that were recovered showed numerous healed fractures and three distinctive surgical burr holes in the skull. It was speculated that the victim, prior to her death, had been involved in some type of auto accident where these injuries would have occurred.

    A dental record report was completed at the time of the discovery; however, future examination may be limited due to some of the teeth being broken in storage and travel.

    A DNA profile was developed from the remains through the University of North Texas.

    There were no missing persons reports from the immediate area that matched the description of this victim.

    Anyone with any information concerning the possible identity of the victim is asked to call Detective Sean Tice at the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office at 904-209-2192

    Deputies find skeletal remains at Crescent Beach

    St Johns County Sheriff David B. Shoar is asking Historic City News readers to come forward with any information they may have concerning the identity of skeletal remains discovered in a Crescent Beach sand dune … 25 years ago.
    The remains were located 8/10’s of a mile north of the Crescent Beach ramp; about ten feet from the high tide level and about 2 1/2 feet below the dune level on April 11, 1985 by workers building a ramp across the sand dunes to the beach.
    The medical examiner’s office ruled the death a homicide; although the decomposed condition of the remains made it impossible to determine the cause of death.
    “These are the remains of a human being,” Shoar said. “People knew her, someone misses her, and at least one person knows exactly what happened to her.”
    Based on forensic findings in an anthropological report obtained from the University of Florida in the 1980′s, scientists believe the victim was likely a 15 to 35 year-old, a white female, approximately 5’7” tall, with light brown or blonde hair.
    Another clue comes from bones recovered from the burial site that show numerous healed fractures and three distinctive surgical burr holes in the skull. Prior to the victim’s death, it is possible that she had been involved in some type of accident where these injuries occurred.
    A DNA profile was developed by the laboratory at the University of North Texas. If a possible victim can be developed, investigators are confident that they could make a positive identification.
    A dental record report was also completed at the time of the discovery however future examination may be limited due to some of the teeth being broken in storage and travel.
    “Someone knows the truth about what happened to this person between 1980 and 1984,” Cold Case Detective Sean Tice told Historic City News reporters.
    According to Tice, no missing persons report matched the description of this victim. Tice believes that circumstances may have changed over the last 25 years that will allow the truth to be told.
    Anyone with information concerning this crime is asked to contact Cold Case Detective Sean Tice at (904) 209-2192. You can remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward by calling CrimeStoppers of Northeast Florida at 1-888-277-TIPS (8477).

    It used to be called UF BEACH.

    Close proximity to St. Augustine and Jacksonville...high crime areas.
    The perp would have to be familiar with the area, IMO. Or a visiting tourist as there isn't a major highway nearby.

    St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case detectives are reaching out for the public’s help to solve a quarter century-old murder case uncovered in a Crescent Beach sand dune.

    Workers building a dock discovered the skeletal remains on April 11, 1985, about a mile north of the Crescent Beach ramp. They called the Sheriff’s Office, which sent the remains to the University of Florida for study. The results indicated it was probably a white woman between the ages of 20 and 40, about five-foot seven-inches tall, with light brown to blonde hair. Her death occurred between one and five years prior to the discovery, the cause of her demise undetermined due to decomposition. But the death was ruled a homicide, the bones showing healed fractures and three surgical burr holes in the skull that could have come from accident injuries that had healed.

    A dental report was also done in 1985, as was a DNA profile. There were no missing persons reports from the immediate area that matched the body’s description.

    Anyone with information concerning the possible identity of this victim is asked to contact St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Det. Sean Tice at (904) 209-2192.

    Sheriff seeks ID of Crescent Beach homicide victim

    Posted on November 28, 2012 by News Desk

    Community Affairs Corporal Catherine Payne is asking Historic City News readers for help in identifying human remains discovered by the St Johns County Sheriff’s Office a mile north of the Crescent Beach ramp — over 27 years ago.

    The remains were located about ten-feet from the high-tide level, between 2-3 feet below the dune level.

    Numerous healed fractures were observed and three distinctive surgical burr holes in the skull; leading the medical examiner to rule the manner of death a homicide. The advanced decomposition of the body precludes a conclusion as to the cause-of-death, without further evidence. A DNA profile was developed from the remains through the University of North Texas.

    A forensic examination conducted by the University of Florida determined the remains are likely those of a white female, approximately 5’7” tall, with light brown or blonde hair, believed to be between 20-40 years-old, who died between 1-5 years prior to the discovery on April 11, 1985.

    Federal Bureau of Investigations analysts examined the remains and used current technology to reconstruct the facial features to develop photographs believed to resemble the victim at the time of her death.

    Anyone with information concerning the possible identity of this victim is asked to contact Detective Sean Tice at (904)209-2192 or Crime Stoppers.

    Detectives still trying to ID remains found on beach in 1985
    New image supplied by University of South Florida

    December 12, 2014

    ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. - Cold case detectives with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office are still seeking the public's help in identifying remains found in a Crescent Beach sand dune nearly 30 years ago.



    [​IMG]


    On April 11, 1985, workers building a dock discovered the skeletal remains and called the Sheriff's Office. The remains were found about eight-tenths of a mile north of the Crescent Beach ramp, about 10 feet from the high-tide level and about two and a half feet below the dune level.

    A forensic examination conducted by the University of Florida determined the remains were possibly of a white woman, about 5 feet 7 inches tall with light brown to blonde hair. The approximate age of the woman was determined to be between 20 and 40 years old, and death occurred between one and five years before the discovery.

    At the time, a cause of death was unable to be determined due to the decomposition of the body, but the manner of death was ruled a homicide, investigators said.

    [​IMG]


    Investigators have received three forensic images of how the victim may have looked. The images were supplied by the FBI, Louisiana State University and most recently from the University of South Florida.


    Bones that were recovered showed numerous healed fractures and three distinctive surgical burr holes in the skull, investigators said. It was speculated that the victim, before her death, had been involved in some type of car accident, in which the injuries would have occurred, investigators said.

    A DNA profile was developed from the remains through the University of North Texas.

    [​IMG]


    There were no missing persons reports from the immediate area that matched the description of the victim, investigators said.

    Investigators said even the smallest tip will help.

    "Anything, anything at all can help us," said Cmdr. Chuck Mulligan. "And we know with time there is a chance for diminished returns, the longer this thing goes the longer the potential that family members have passed. If they were alive today that victim could be 60 years old."

    Anyone with any information concerning the possible identity of the victim is asked to call Detective Sean Tice at the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office at 904-209-2192.
