    At some point, her case was transferred to the King County Sheriff’s Office in Washington State because of some similarities to one of the three unidentified victims of the Green River Killer, Gary Ridgway. Jane Doe B-10 had been picked up by Ridgway in spring or summer of 1983 while hitchhiking at the Pacific Highway South in Washington. Her body wasn’t found until March 21 of 1984.

    According to the estimations of the forensic examiner, Jane Doe was a white woman of about 15 years of age, who stood between 5’2 and 5 feet 7 inches. It’s also believed that she had been a prostitute or a runaway. Being a white female and standing at 5’4, Diana fit the description pretty well. However, it shouldn’t be assumed that this was enough of a reason to send her case to Washington, as thousands of missing women posses similar characteristics. It’s highly likely that there were other convincing reasons that led law enforcement to believe that Jane Doe and Diana were the same person.

    Despite the links between the two, both women have been listed on NamUs as unidentified and missing for far longer than it takes to complete the DNA tests. Therefore, I assume that they’re two different persons or, if there’s been a match, LE is withholding the information for some reason. Nonetheless, it should be noted that Diana isn’t in this Jane Doe’s list of rule-outs.

    This is Jane Doe "B-10" - https://www.namus.gov/UnidentifiedPersons/Case#/9927 / http://www.missingkids.com/poster/NCMU/1151977/1/screen

    Diana is not on the official rule-out list.
