GINNY DOE - It’s Not Fair!

People are not supposed to die unless they are very, very old or very, very sick. So what am I doing with my picture on this blog, dead without anyone knowing who I am? It’s not fair! They think I was somewhere between 10 and 14 years old. Stuff like this isn’t supposed to happen! I should be looking forward to my first date, dreaming about prom or maybe still playing with Barbies. So what happened to me?

On April 3, 1985, someone found my remains (yuck - I hate that word) just off of Big Wheel Gap Road, four miles southwest of Jellico in Campbell County, Tennessee. The investigators think I was killed one or two years earlier on the edge of the strip mine and then tossed down the slope. So unfair!

They found a pair of size 5 hiking boots near my remains but they are unsure if they belonged to me. I had a bracelet and a necklace that were made of plastic buttons. Those investigating say I may have been from the Appalachian area, possibly Kentucky or Tennessee. So there you have it other than this information, an approximate age and the fact that I was a young white female, they know nothing about me.

They’ve compared my DNA and dental records to quite a few young girls who could possibly fit my description but so far there has been no match.

A forensic artist was kind enough to create a reconstruction of my face. Please take a close look at it and send it to your friends. Someone must know who I am! Somewhere, someone must be missing me!

Unfortunatey, in cases like these with children, someone in the person's immediate family had something to do with their death, accidental or otherwise. So, they aren't reported missing, and without that the authorities have no records to compare against when remains are found. Very, very sad.

I wonder how many of these missing may be from the Amish community. They don't have photos and also if the child leaves the community, they disown them. Makes me sad that there are so many missing people.

She may have been kidnapped and been the victim of foul play I wonder if they checked Her for semen and if it would still be any good after so long...poor little girl R.I.P.
