“Donna” (1971)

On the 19th of April, 1971, a woman’s body was discovered in a shallow grave at SW 195th Avenue and Old Cutler Road in Kendall, Florida.

Serial Killer Samuel Little confessed to the murder of this woman, and said that her name may have been “Sarah”. Investigators found a possible lead that her name may have been “Donna” after they learnt about a woman who wore a similar sweater to Jane Doe used the same name.

Samuel then proceeded to draw a sketch of the woman from his memory, and he said that she was likely between 25 and 35.

Jane Doe is described by the medical examiner as being possibly Hispanic, a female between the ages of 18 and 25 who stood between 5″4′ and 5″8′. She had brown hair and had a deformity in the bones of her upper vertebrae which could have impacted the movement and position of her neck. She was of a stocky build.

She was wearing a white, shift dress covered with pink, yellow and green flowers and buttons on the front, a heavy knit multicoloured cardigan sweater and a Belinda brand bra made in Cuba.

Whilst her cause of death has not been made public, it is listed that she was a victim of a homicide.
