Kaarst John Doe

Kaarst John Doe is the name given to an unidentified man who was found deceased at the edge of a forest on the BAB 52 close to Kaarst, Germany. He was found on the 30th of November, 1992.

He had died from multiple gunshot wounds to the neck, which indicated some kind of execution.

John Doe is described as a white male between the ages of 25 and 35. He had a slim/athletic figure, a bald forehead but with short dark brown hair at the top of his head and brown eyes. Inside of his right wrist, he had a 1.5cm long line-shaped scar and investigators determined that he was most likely from Southern or Eastern Europe (Balkan County).

At the time of his death, he was wearing white stockings, a black t-shirt, blue jeans, “Diamond” brand black shoes, a “Razzy” brand brown shirt and a washed light blue denim jacket from the brand “Dallas”, lined with fur.

John Doe was also carrying 60 DM, one French coin, one Spanish coin and an open packet of cigarettes on him when he died.

At the end of July 2022, the call for identification for this John Doe that was normally on the police’s homepage was no longer there. This suggests that Kaarst John Doe may have been identified, however, there is no other information available online to either support or deny this theory.

“Bodine”

“Bodine” or “Bodean” is possibly the name of a woman who was found deceased in Atlanta, Georgia on the 13th of October 2002. At the time of writing this article, her NamUs profile has been removed which suggests that she may have been identified but there is no official confirmation that she has been identified. She was killed by serial killer Gerald Patrick Lewis.

“Bodine”‘s partial remains were found in woodland near Charlie Brown Airport. The bones that were found included the skull with no mandible, a pelvic bone, a scapula, the right femur, vertebrae, the left clavicle, the sternum, arm bones and hand bones.

Several years after being arrested, Gerald confessed to her murder. He claimed that she was possibly named either “Bodine” or “Bodean”, and that she would frequently go to the Alamo Hotel located on Metropolitan Parkway (formerly known as Stewart Avenue). He met her in either 1993 or 1994.

Gerald said that before the woman got into the car she said that she had to run into her motel room really quickly, and said something about making sure her son was okay.

After the pair had engaged in sexual intercourse, Gerald drove to a dirt pit which was just off a runway from the airport. It was here that he pinned her against a tree, raped her at knifepoint and then stabbed her 30-40 times. Gerald later said: “She didn’t even cry or anything. It was kind of strange.”

Gerald passed away on the 25th of July 2009, and in total, he confessed to seven murders in Georgia, Alabama, and Massachusetts.

“Bodine” is described as being a female between the ages of 25 and 50. Investigators found a silver-coloured ring marked with “Korea” and “925” with her remains.

Hopefully, we will be able to give her name back to her very soon.

Hernando County Jane Doe (March 1981)

Hernando County Jane Doe is an unidentified victim of serial killer William Mansfield Jr. All four of William’s victims were found on his father’s property in Centerwood Avenue, Weeki Wachee, Florida. This victim was discovered wrapped in a red/green coloured blanket.

The body of Jane Doe was discovered on the 19th of March, 1981. Whilst her official cause of death has not been stated, it is listed as a homicide and William Mansfield Jr was convicted of all four murders in 1982.

Hernando County Jane Doe is described as being a white female, between the ages of 20 and 30 years old. Her weight is unknown but it is thought that she stood between 5″4′ and 5″6. It is thought that she died between 1 and 3 years before her remains were discovered.

The only accessory she had with her was an aqua blue ceramic pendant which was approximately 1″ in diameter, with a drawing on the front of the pendant of a pink heart with a red smaller heart with extended yellow wings within. From the red heart and the wings, there are thirteen yellow lines, and on the back of the pendant are possibly the blue letters “ee” and potentially a “p”.

Canadian County Jane Doe

On the 5th of January 1990, the body of a young female adult/teenager was found in Geary/El Reno, Oklahoma, by a survey crew. Jane Doe had been beaten to death.

Jane Doe is described as a White/Hispanic/Native American female between 18 and 35. Her height was estimated to be between 5″3′ and 5″7′, and her weight is unknown due to her remains being skeletal at the time of discovery.

Keri Lyn Wyant

Keri Lyn Wyant is the name of a woman whose partial remains were found in a ditch and cornfield in Condit Township, Illinois, on the 1st of May 1995. She was formally identified in October 2020. At the time of her death, Keri was 23 years old.

Her exact cause of death is not known, but it has been ruled a homicide. It is possible that she died from either a gunshot or had been beaten.

An article by Radford University has stated that serial killer Larry DeWayne Hall is a suspect in Keri’s case, despite the fact her body was found after he had been arrested for the kidnap and murder of Jessica Roach. At the time of this article, it is not clear if Larry is still considered a suspect in Keri’s murder.

Anyone with any information regarding Keri’s murder is urged to come forward to the police.

Debra Faye Asbury

27-year-old Debra Faye Asbury has been described by friends as “the life of the party”, she was fun and free-spirited and was doing nothing but enjoying her life. She had an on/off boyfriend, and she was also dating an older man who she lived with. Some sources claim that she was having a romantic relationship with the man, whereas others say he was just a roommate. Debra was living in Phoenix, Arizona.

On the afternoon of the 22nd of March, 1985, the daughter of Debra’s roommate/romantic partner saw Debra leave her home at around 2-2:30pm, and was picked up by two unknown men in a red 1960s pickup truck that had primer stains on the sides. The daughter has said that at least one of the men has picked Debra up before, but that she didn’t recognise them or know who they were.

That night, Debra was spotted at her favourite bar, Boomerang’s Bar & Billiards, and she was then spotted again at Mr Lucky’s. Debra was a regular at both bars, and whilst it is unknown if the two men who picked her up were also present at the bars, a few witnesses have said that they saw her leave the bar and get into the same red 1960s pickup truck.

At 6:56am the morning of the 23rd of March, 1986, Debra’s body was found on a dirt mound, located just south of the football field at Trevor Browne High School. Her body was fully clothed, and she was wearing blue Levi jeans, a white bra which was still intact and around her waist, a white blouse with flowers, a white knit sweater and high-top sneakers. Her shirt was open and unbuttoned, leaving her chest exposed.

A tightly bound piece of barbed wire, which had been taken from a nearby farm, had been wrapped around her neck and tied off behind her left ear. There was a boot print between her thighs, which got narrowed down to belonging to a pair of Sears Diehard work boots. There was also a bite mark between her breasts. Gripped in her hand was a strand of dark-coloured hair, and a hand-rolled joint was found underneath her body. Despite the amount of evidence, even after 37 years, the forensic teams have not been able to pull any useable DNA.

Debra’s cause of death was a cylinder-shaped puncture wound on her chest, which police have speculated could have come from a screwdriver but the actual murder weapon is unknown. Police have said that her murder was overkill, and gruesome.

A few days before her death, Debra was spotted by CCTV at her local bank, making a withdrawal using her boyfriend’s card. In the image, there is a man on Debra’s immediate right, who is looking down at the floor whilst having a slight smile on his face. Debra’s expression is neutral. The man is wearing a dark t-shirt that has a phrase on it, and whilst the first word can’t be made out the second word is “Bud’s”. He has unnatural blonde hair, which may be cut into a mullet style, and is parted in the middle. This image was captured on the 16th of March, 1985, and 7:35pm.

It is unclear if the man in this image has any involvement in Debra’s crime, or if he even knew Debra. Police have been wanting to talk to this man for over 37years, yet he still remains unidentified. Do you recognise him?

As of now, Debra’s case is currently cold. Both of Debra’s boyfriends have been ruled out as being involved in her murder. The two men who picked her up in the 1960s-style truck have never been identified.

Debra’s family and friends hope that with the advancements in DNA technology re-testing the evidence in her case could lead to a breakthrough or at least a dental record match could be made using the bite mark found in between her breasts.

Tamara Lee Tigard

Formerly known as “Lime Lady”, Tamara Lee Tigard was a young woman who was found murdered on the 18th of April, 1980, in Jones, Oklahoma.

In March 1980, Tamara left her home in Las Vegas, Nevada, to go for a walk. But she never returned. Tamara was reported missing, but the report was cleared due to a woman in Ohio using Tamara’s identity. The woman has never been named as a suspect, and her true identity is unknown.

On the 18th of April, 1980, Tamara’s naked body was found on the shore of the North Canadian River. She had been shot three times with a .45 calibre revolver. Her murderer then covered her body in quicklime in an attempt to quicken decomposition, but actually ended up preserving her remains. She was found on what should have been her 21st Birthday.

When Tamara was shot, one of the bullets hit a dime which was then drawn into her body, along with some clothing fibres, indicating that she was wearing clothes when she was killed. Whoever murdered Tamara was facing her whilst shooting her, and moving towards her.

Tamara was identified on the 30th of January, 2020, by the DNA Doe Project. Once her DNA had been uploaded to GEDmatch, it only took a day and a half for the DNA Doe Project to match it to Tamara. The match was confirmed after they obtained dental records from the United States Army. The DNA Doe Project was unable to attain a match using DNA as all of Tamara’s immediate relatives on the West Coast had passed away.

Tamara’s parents and sister all passed away without ever knowing what truly happened to her.
