    Case History
    The victim's decomposed body was spotted in Lake Panasoffkee by two hitchhikers crossing the Panasoffkee bridge on February 19, 1971.
    Police were notified and it was quickly determined that the girl had been strangled by a man's size 36 belt, which was still around her throat.
    Forensic artist Linda Galeener created a composite of the victim. When no one came to claim her body, Galeener was asked to create age-regression drawings, showing what the girl may have looked like at ages 6 and 12. Again, no one identified her.
    The victims is nicknamed "Little Miss Panasoffkee" and it is quite possible that she was a runaway.
    Authorities believe she was murdered else where and dumped off the bridge.

    I haven't looked at her case in a long time, I was surprised at how much information doenetwork or whoever did, found on her. I used to do this thing on here called "Mystery Case" and I would pick 10 or 20 random cases and number them, and then ask anyone who wanted a Mystery Case to pick a number, then that was theirs to do with what they wanted. I actually picked this Jane Doe as my own mystery case at one point and I could find out nothing at all, absolutely nothing, since then there is a lot more on her.

    If you're talking about related to swn jane doe, I doubt it, really far away and Panasofkee was dumped in water, swan buried and covered. Just a lot of differences, alot.

    I have been finding it a little odd, and it's probably nothing, the similarities I'm seeing in swan, caledonia and a maryland unidentified.

    No connection between all three, they just give me the same feeling I guess. Young women, not rich, poor dentals, 2 at lkeast so far shot in the head, 2 dragged to where they were found, off a road in wooded areas, 2 in November 1 year apart, just alot of similarities that don't mean a thing so far.

    Little Miss Pansoffkee was found in very shallow, weedy water, more like muck, below an overpass. Assuming that she was thrown off the overpass, the fact of landing in water would seem to be incidental rather than relevant. The dental work and ankle surgery reflect a person well taken-care-of. I think she was a runaway from a distant state and somehow fell through the cracks. I suspect that she was a victim of Gerard Schafer.
