    I found this on my other website, I must have not have realized at the time that this was the same Jane Doe. It is from April 2012:

    The remains of a woman found in a ditch in 1981 were exhumed Friday in hopes that the Fort Myers medical examiner’s office can help identify her.
    Jane Doe, estimated to be in her late teens to early 20s, was found face-down in a roadside ditch in Moore Haven, Glades County, on March 9, 1981. She had suffered blunt-force trauma to her head and her death was ruled a homicide. Due to the limits of the era’s technology, she was not identified and the case went cold. The Glades County Sheriff’s Office reopened the case last year to bring the woman justice.
    Jane Doe was approximately 5 feet, 4½ inches tall and weighed
    125 pounds. She had auburn hair and hazel eyes, as well as a “N” tattooed on the top of her right thumb. The only other details known are that she was wearing copper-colored nail polish on her toes when she died, and she was a nail biter. She may have been at Uncle Joe’s Fish Camp or the Trucadero Bar in Clewiston around the time of her death, according to the Doe Network website, which serves as a missing-persons database.
    Capt. Daryl Lewis, commander of the criminal investigations division for the Glades County Sheriff’s Office, partly attributes the unsuccessful attempt to identify her body in 1981 to the underdeveloped missing-persons database.
    “The main thing is getting her identified, so hopefully the family can reclaim the body,” he said.
    There are several other reasons Jane Doe was not identified in 1981. When she was found, no one came forward with any information, and the lead investigator on the case is now deceased. All initial photos of the body were taken with a rudimentary Polaroid camera, and showed a face badly decomposed by water exposure. Also, the original police report was no more than a paragraph long.
    Brett Harding, with District 21 Medical Examiner’s Office in Fort Myers, received the remains Friday morning. Now the femur will be sent to the University of Texas for DNA extraction, and her skull will be used for a facial reconstruction.
    Lewis declined to comment on any related evidence found in 1981, for fear of jeopardizing the ongoing investigation.
    “We have very little to go on, so we don’t want to release what we’ve got,” he said.
    Jane Doe is one of two Glade County homicide victims awaiting identification. The other, a male, was found around the same time as the Jane Doe, who gets priority because she was found first, Lewis said.

    Could this be Mary Opitz missing from Ft.Myers Florida? Is it possible they kept her alive for 2 months before killing her? Weight is the only thing that a bit off http://icaremissingpersonscoldcases....l#.Umf2TnB4wfE

    I hope they already compared this Jane Doe with Mary Opitz, but maybe you should forward it anyway in case they didn't because the timeline doesn't match fully? If he could have kept her alive for a month, I think some really sick persons could do so, yes.

    Mary Hare was found face down in a ditch, just like this Jane Doe, and Mary Opitz disappeared just a month before Mary Hare, same area, same parking lot, and they looked like sisters ( as I read on google newspapers) I think this match should be investigated, if they didn't do so yet.

    Eta: She could match the above images, only thing that doesn't match is her weight. Scar between her fingers..maybe tissue was gone already?

    It was confirmed this girl is not Mary Opitz.

    On Namus they changed her age? It was said the girl was in her late teens, early 20's, but now her minimum age is 25, maximum age is 45.

    These ankle boots are not cheap for sure, and I guess they weren't cheap back then.

    Also it says on their website: All Quoddy footwear is "made to order", which means when you order, we make it just for you. This takes a little time, usually 3-6 weeks.

    Back then there was no internet to order a pair of shoes, you would just go to a store and try the right size that was in stock I guess? Or she (or her parents) had them made, and I bet they didn't have that many stores in the early 80's or late 70's.

    There has to be some way to get a more specific area were she came from, or at least were her shoes were bought.

    I guess the investigators also tried to figure this out already, but hopefully some relatives or friends recognize such expensive shoes.

    I searched for Quoddy vintage ankle high boots, I have no idea if her shoes were made of leather(look), fur or suede, and as I read you could even choose if you want hard or soft soles, but maybe some examples might jog someones memory.

    Fleece lined, picture above and below.

    These are just examples!

    On Doenetwork it says she is about 5"4 to 5"6: 64 inches to 66 inches. (or 162.5 cm- 167.64cm)
    Age range is the same, between 25 and 45, but on Can you identify me they say she is between 18 and 45 years old. So maybe she can be younger than 25 I guess.
