Buckskin Girl/Doe- Identity found after 37 years! ✨
🔎On April 9, 2018, DNA analysis performed by the DNA Doe Project and Full Genome Corp. was able to confirm the identity of the Buckskin Girl to Marcia King (age 21- from Arkansas).
🔎On April 24, 1981, a passerby spotted a buckskin poncho (ultimately how she was named) in a ditch on a rural road in Ohio. She hadn’t been in that location long, she was found bare foot, but her feet were clean. Upon further inspection, the person noticed it was a deceased young woman in the fetal position. Ms. King was murdered, her cause of death was strangulation though she also had blunt force trauma to her head. She hadn’t been deceased for long, maybe 2 days. 🔎At the time of her death, it was speculated that she could’ve been killed by an unknown serial killer at the time who targeted sex workers/dancers. She had no indication of sexual abuse so this theory was dismissed. 🔎Forensic palynology tests were done on her clothing. After testing, it was determined that she had spent time in the NW part of the US as well as northern Mexico. Soot particles were found, which suggests she was in a populated around vehicles. Isotope testing showed she had spent 4 months in populous areas. Ms. King had been spotted in Louisville, KY 14 days prior to her death.
🔎Though she hadn’t been reported missing, her family never lost hope. Her mother stayed in the same house and kept the same number. Unfortunately her father passed away in January 2018, prior to her identity being found. 🔎On July 20, 2018, a memorial service was held and a new headstone with her name was placed on her existing grave.
⚠️To this day, her killer has never been found or identified so this case remains unsolved. Though now we know the real name of Buckskin Doe. 🖤
✨Thanks for reading this news. It’s amazing what forensics can do.
I look back over videos, see you full of life, laughing, and hear your voice. You were here once, I carried you inside my belly, I rubbed and held you there, you were protected & I loved you more than life. You loved basketball, Power Rangers, Space Jam, and riding the lawn mower with your PaPa David McLean. Growing up,all the girls loved you, you were humble, shy and aware but were so particular about girls that attention didn't move you. You were an old soul, 90's R&B was your thing, you loved riding with the windows down, sunroof back and looking at the stars with your Momma & still did that as an adult. You loved the country and fishing. You loved all babies & little children and had dreams of a wife and kids when you turned 26. You were very respectful, well mannered and soft spoken. You loved all of your family and all of your brothers & sisters. I don't ever remember you getting into a fight with anyone. You didn't do anything in your lifetime to deserve this B.....You had such a good heart, I stopped trying to make sense of it. I am so grateful to God that I had to opportunity of being your Momma for 23 years. Your death & your absence hurt more than I could ever express. Someone TOOK your life - WE WILL FIND THEM. WE WILL SHARE YOUR FACE AND NAME. YOUR KILLERS WILL NOT REST EASY WHILE THEY ARE STILL WALKING FREE -

Janis McCall talks about her daughter Stacy, who disappeared 26 years ago. Standing in that bedroom on June 7, 1992, Janis McCall had no way of knowing her daughter would become part of Springfield's most puzzling unsolved disappearance. Stacy was a beautiful, vibrant girl, McCall said. She used to model wedding dresses, and her long hair reached past her waist.
Even now, when McCall sees a girl with hair that long, she has to get a glimpse of the girl's face just to see that it's not Stacy. Next Wednesday will be the 25th marker — not anniversary, she said — of their disappearance. "Anniversaries are something people celebrate," she said, "and we don't celebrate when the three missing women disappeared." The last time McCall said she saw her daughter was June 6, 1992, around 8:30 p.m. Twenty-five years later, she said she still cries, though less often.
In one of the earliest stories about the three missing women, McCall told the News-Leader: "The shower is a great place to cry." McCall said if her daughter is somewhere alive, she wants her to know this: She still loves her no matter what has happened since her disappearance.
Wednesday, there will be a candlelight vigil for the three missing women in Phelps Grove Park at 7 p.m., McCall said.
Everyone is welcome to come, she said. "It's going to be a positive thing," McCall said. "It's going to be a celebration of their lives." #thespringfieldthree#rememberthethree#horrorfilm#thrillerfilm#truecrime#springfieldmissouri#actress#actor#independentfilm#indiefilm#cinematic#unsolvedmysteries#thetruthwillcomeout#truehorror#missingpersons#missingperson#unsolvedmurder#ghostsfromthepast#independentfilm#thetruthwillcomeout#truehorror#blood#cinematic#movieposter#vintagehorror ...

The Death of Surfer Girls Debbie Ackerman & Maria Johnson
On November 15th, 1971, best friends Debbie Ackerman and Maria Johnson went missing after reportedly hitchhiking to Houston. Two days later, their bodies were found in Turner’s Bayou outside of Texas City. Their murders were two of the many confessed to by convicted murderer Edward Harold Bell, the murders he referred to as “The Eleven Who Went to Heaven.” Although countless articles and a television docuseries go out of their way to make a case for Bell’s guilt, there are reasons to doubt the confessions he’d later recant. Either way, the slayings of Maria Johnson and Debbie Ackerman remain unsolved to this day.
