    New technology propels bid to crack murder mystery

    SARASOTA — Maxine Miller was the first crime scene technician to arrive at the shallow, unmarked wooded grave of a woman no one had bothered to report as missing.

    Seven long years later, the identity of a homicide victim known to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office as Case No. 07-10645, or simply “Jane Doe,” remains a mystery. But she is hardly forgotten. Miller keeps an artist's rendering of her face on the bulletin board at her office.

    “She's always on my mind,” says Miller, whose relationship with Jane Doe began on Feb. 6, 2007, some 50 yards south of 5438 Ashton Court in Sarasota. “Who are you? That question often goes through my head as I walk in the door: Who are you?”

    On the eve of that grim anniversary, the Sheriff's Office released another composite portrait of Jane Doe. And with an assist from technology, an even sharper profile of the county's only anonymous homicide victim may soon assume a sharper focus.

    Buried in a three-foot grave, her skull exhibiting signs of fracturing before death, Jane Doe went undiscovered for as long as a year before a passer-by found one of her bones. She is believed to have been in her 30s or 40s, and of European ethnicity. She had long brown ponytailed hair with blond streaks. Jane Doe's DNA matches nothing in the FBI database, and her body was too decomposed to detect fingerprints.

    Thanks to facial reconstruction software created by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, new images unveiled in Sarasota Wednesday will replace original FBI sketches.

    “Both are based on the same craniofacial structure, but there are certain areas, like the cartilage at the tip of the nose, which are more subjective,” Miller said. “There are a few little changes to the brow ridge and the fullness of the upper lips. We've gone seven years with the first sketch without any luck.”

    But the real revelations are likely forthcoming from the frontier of “stable isotope analysis.” Unavailable to forensic science in 2007, isotope analysis can give researchers an idea of where someone grew up and most recently lived, based on diet and water-consumption data stored in tooth enamel, as well as bone and hair samples. Jane Doe's remains are being studied by University of South Florida researchers.

    “We had some early indications in our isotopic studies that she was here for a recent amount of time and maybe came from another area,” said Miller, “but we're going to let the University of South Florida finish making the analysis before we make any definite statements.”

    “Not knowing the identity of the victim makes it difficult for us to go back and look at that history, which is normally where we develop a suspect,” added Sgt. Kevin Pingle. “So here, we're actually taking a different approach and reaching out to the public.”

    Pingle said the new images are being posted on missing- person websites in an effort to jog memories and trigger recognition: “I want to find out who she is, so we can give an answer to her family, that here she is, you can take her home.”

    At roughly 5-foot-7 and 145 to 165 pounds, Jane Doe was found wearing a light-colored, medium-sized Spice Wear miniskirt, with a rear zipper and drawstring suede belt. She also wore turquoise socks and a multicolored cotton pullover shirt with a “Made in Italy” tag. She had breast implant surgery that investigators believe could have been completed between 1998 and 2007. Authorities are not releasing the exact details of her death.

    SARASOTA — Seven years after investigators found her bones in a shallow grave, Sarasota sheriff's detectives hope new computer-generated images will help identify the woman known only as "Jane Doe."

    Jane Doe was found Feb. 6, 2007, in a wooded area 50 yards south of a residence in the 5400 block of Ashton Court in Sarasota.

    "She had been dead for up to a year," according to the sheriff's office news release.The manner or cause of death

    has not been released.

    The sheriff's office turned to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, which developed images using craniofacial reconstruction software.

    The victim apparently was a white woman in her 30s or 40s. She stood 5-foot-4 to 5-9 and weighed 145 to 165 pounds. She had long brown hair with blonde streaks.

    "Her eye color could not be determined and may be different than what is depicted," the sheriff's office said.

    Skeletal analysis indicated the victim may have fractured her nose and right wrist at some point in her life. Her breast implants were manufactured before serial numbers were issued.

    She was wearing a "Made in Italy" shirt and a skirt with a leather belt made by Spice Wear.

    An analysis of the victim's teeth, bone and hair is being performed to understand water consumption and diet in order to determine where in the country she lived.

    The University of South Florida is assisting with this part of the investigation, according to the sheriff's office.

    The sheriff's office also entered her DNA and dental profiles into government databases.

    Detectives and crime scene investigators have used many resources to identify this woman for the past seven years to no avail.

    Anyone with information or anyone who knows someone who disappeared prior to February 2007 who matches this physical description can call Criminal Investigations at 861-4900 or contact Crime Stoppers at 941-366-TIPS (8477) or online at sarasotacrimestoppers.com .

    SARASOTA COUNTY - Lt. Skip Wood stared at the spot where he first found her: an overgrown thicket shaded by an oak tree, silent except for the far-off groan of heavy machinery.

    After sifting through layers of dirt, they uncovered the partially decomposed body of a woman in a 3-foot hole. The excavation began the next day and took 10 hours. What they found -- a woman lying on her side, a knee bent in the air, buried in a shallow grave -- is seared in Wood's memory.

    The first step in solving the case is identifying Jane Doe. Someone, Wood reasons, must have known her.

    "She's somebody's daughter or sister or co-worker," he said. "You figure somebody out there would realize they haven't seen her and would report her missing."

    For now, the physical clues are limited.

    She was fully clothed in a cotton multicolored shirt with an Italian label, a skirt with an unusual leather belt made of straps tied together, blue underwear and two pairs of socks.

    "She was a tall person, about 5-feet-7, and she had long reddish hair with blond streaks," Miller said.

    Jane Doe had no shoes, which led investigators to surmise that she was carried to the grave. Wood said it is clear whoever buried her already knew this isolated spot existed.

    "This is not your normal homicide area," he said. "This is an area that someone has obviously taken great care to obfuscate the fact that there is a body here."

    Clues leading nowhere

    In the months that followed, detectives canvassed the area, including surrounding businesses. No one recalled seeing anything suspicious.

    Medical Examiner Dr. Russell Vega sought clues from the body. He determined that she was between 30 and 40 years old, weighed roughly 150 pounds and had been in the ground for seven to 12 months, a long time for no one to have reported her missing.

    Her body showed signs of trauma, skull fractures that were most likely caused before she was buried. Vega called in an expert on bone trauma from the University of Florida, Dr. Michael Warren. Warren found the fractures were consistent with blunt-force trauma. The case became a homicide.
    Vega sought ways to identify the woman. The body was too decomposed to reveal fingerprints. But X-rays showed she had silicone breast implants and had extensive dental work.

    But those clues led nowhere. The woman's breast implants were a popular model sold before medical companies serialized them. The surgery could have been done anytime between 1998 and 2007, in a number of states.

    DNA samples and dental records were also taken from the woman, but without any records available for a comparison, tracking down a match is close to impossible.

    Her skull was sent to the lab in Gainesville, to see if graduate students could discern the victim's ancestry. General race and background information can be used by artists to create a rendering of what the woman might have looked like when she was alive.

    Months after the discovery, measurements of her facial features were taken at the lab and analyzed by a computer program, which determined Jane Doe was a white female of European ancestry. That helped artists with the FBI reconstruct an image of the woman's face and body.

    For the first time, detectives had an idea of what their Jane Doe might have looked like. They created flyers with the new information and over the next year revisited the area surrounding the woods where she was found. They went back to businesses and employees showing her face everywhere. No one recognized her.

    Still working the case

    Jane Doe's clothes are being processed by the FBI for trace hairs and fibers. A rendering of what she is believed to have looked like and other information appear in three online missing-person databases. One is managed by the FBI, another by the medical examiners of Florida and the third by an organization called the Doe Network, maintained by volunteers.
    Sarasota County Sheriff's Sgt. Kevin Pingel oversees the case and still receives requests almost daily from other agencies for more information. Detectives have traveled out of state to follow up on leads that seemed promising.

    No matter how many dead ends they hit, the team working on this case refuses to give up. Miller and Wood pull out Jane Doe's file several times a month, scouring the photos and notes, looking for something they have missed.

    "If I see something on TV about a missing person, I'm always interested in that," Miller said, "or I get on the Internet and look to see if there is someone out there looking for someone that might be our Jane Doe."

    Jane Doe's remains now reside in the morgue at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where she is the only unidentified body.

    Investigators wonder if the only person who knows that Jane Doe is dead is the person who killed and buried her. Still, they remain hopeful that someone will step forward and crack this case.

    "I think that we will eventually find out who she is, I do believe that," Miller said
