After 12 Years, 'Lavender Doe' Is Finally Identified

2019-11-21 04:12:38

Volunteer internet sleuths on a true-crimes website have helped identify a woman dubbed 'Lavender Doe.' According to Newser, a woman was found dead, her body on fire, on Oct. 29, 2006, near Longview, Texas. She was at most 25, blonde, and no family had come forward with a matching missing-person report. In August, 20198, the DNA Doe Project crowdfunded $1,400 in order to get the woman's DNA reanalyzed. Doe's DNA got them to third and fourth cousins, generating a family tree rooted in Czech ancestry. That led them to a descendant who lived 30 miles from where Doe died. She had no knowledge of a missing woman but agreed to provide a DNA sample—and it provided a big clue. Eventually, it led them to Florida and a name: Dana Lynn Dodd.
