Broward County John Doe (January 1984)

On the 8th of January, 1984, the body of a man who had been bound, tortured, shot and then partially burned was discovered close to a roadway in Pembroke Pines, Florida.

Just a day before John Doe was found, a Kentucky woman who was identified as being Tammy Gale Crider had been found shot to death in the same location. There has never been any charges in her murder.

John Doe is described as being a white or Hispanic man, between the ages of 21 and 35 years old. He stood at 5″6′ and weighed around 120 pounds. His body was found days after his death, and it had slightly decomposed. John Doe had suffered from leg injuries when he was younger.

John Doe was found wearing a long-sleeved blue western style plaid shirt, light blue “Pelham” pants, Jockey-style underwear size 18, a blue leather and elastic belt, and light blue nylon socks.

Broward County John Doe’s case has recently been removed from NamUs, which does suggest that the case has been resolved, no confirmed identification of John Doe has been confirmed at the time of this article.
