Ventura County Investigators Request Public Help to Solve the Case of 40-Year-Old Jane Doe.
VENTURA, Calif. – Ventura County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a Jane Doe on Monday.
After 41 years, investigators with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and Project DNA Doe found new information about Jane Doe found in 1980.
Doe was found on June 18, 1980, in the Westlake High School parking lot.
She was described as a Hispanic and / or Native American woman between the ages of 15 and 25. She was 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighed 110-115 pounds, with brown eyes and shoulder-length black hair with bleached ends.
When they found her, she was four months pregnant.
Detectives were able to use DNA tests to identify the father of the unborn baby this year.
The father was identified as a Honduran immigrant associated with a Central American immigrant community in the Koreatown district of Los Angeles.
County detectives say they have been in contact with him but were unable to obtain any new information about her.
Detectives hope to obtain any information available from the public to identify Doe.
“We are asking everyone to take a look at this artist’s interpretation of our Jane Doe and let us know if they think they might have met her or her relatives in the 1980s,” said Steve Rhods of the Sheriff’s Department. Ventura County.
Anyone with information on Doe should contact Officer Steve Rhods at [email protected] or 805-384-4736.
