    That is a really good find Romulus! Joanne does not have a Doe Network page that I could find and most of what I could find on her was based on news articles from British Columbia, Canada. That is in line with where the Isotope testing has placed Racine Doe's probable early childhood and, in my opinion, she looks very similar. Joanne was last seen with and UI male which may make the time table not matter as much if she were kidnapped and held...do you plan on following up with this one?

    Oh, she does have a doe network page. I couldn't find it when I was digging around. Now the question is finding out whether this young lady has DNA in a system that cross talks with the system in the US. Thanks for pointing out her Doe page.

    Yup I helped solve my hubby’s cousin’s death and now others are trying to take credit for it. His cousins and myself are annoyed. Didn’t realize our search for the truth and closure is someone else’s true crime wet dream to solve and get fame/credit for.

    Personally I think this is a victim of severe domestic abuse . Could be a wife or the perp’s child even. Likely low income and off the grid type folks. Salt of the earth.

    So many times we think this could be a stranger abduction, captivity for years, and death. But the sad truth is domestic violence is a real thing and when victims do not have the advantage of finances or community they can be mercilessly abused for years. And because they do not have much contact with ppl bc of the remote area it goes unchecked.

    That’s what happened in my DH’s family murder case. Woman was stuck with a wife abuser on a ranch and when her daughter came to town to get her mother out of the abuse the husband murdered them both. When a woman or victim of domestic abuse in general finally decides to leave it is the most dangerous point in her (or his!) abusive relationship.

    I also wouldn’t put TOO much focus on finding matches from Canada. Isotope testing is great, but keep in mind in northern US states there is food that is imported from Canada. The isotope testing is based on really where the food was produced, not where she ate it.

    I agree that isotope testing shouldn't be the central focus when looking for possible matches. Furthermore, the areas they indicate are usually very large. For example, isotope testing for this doe said she may have lived in Alaska, Southern Canada, or the Western US around Montana. Really, it only states she is from North America, and likely the northern portion for at least a part of her life.

    Candace disappeared on a cold December night in WI in 1985. She had psychological and behavioral issues and wasn’t on her medication when she went missing. She is listed as having a mental disability (the UID as we know was thought to have possibly had a disability mentally).

    Is she on the rule outs?

    Edit: The vitals are pretty far off though in regard to height and such. Probably not a match, but I do find it interesting much of her case info is not concrete (they don’t know if she went missing in 1988 or 1985 for example) or has been incorrect before so who knows if her vitals are listed correctly. I’m Going to keep looking ❤️

    This is a morgue photograph of Racine Doe. There shouldn't need to be a lot of guesswork with possible sketch matches because we know exactly what she looked like.

    From the Jane Doe Racine County, Wisconsin Facebook page:

    Sheriff Christopher Schmaling will hold a Media Briefing regarding the 1999 Homicide of a young (until now unidentified) woman who’s brutally abused body was found in a corn field in the Town of Raymond.

    The young woman’s identification will be released, as will the name of the individual in custody for her death.

    The Media Briefing will take place on Friday, November 8, 2019 at 11:00 am at the Racine County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Station 14116 Washington Avenue (Hwy 20 just west of I94).

    We will NOT entertain questions or other inquiries on the matter in advance of the briefing!

    Both the victim and the individual in custody have substantial ties to a northwestern Chicago suburb.

    Relevant materials will be distributed to media outlets at the conclusion of the briefing.

    I always love when they are able to identify the Doe in a case, but when they are able to apprehend the perp as well....priceless. Great job LE. This is one of those cases that stuck in my head because of what was done to her. This is great news!!!!!!
