Overview of 1972 Pinellas County Jane Doe

The woman's body was discovered on Belleair Beach in Pinellas County, Florida on April 25, 1972. Her head was not recovered, and wires were used to fasten lead weights to her body. One of the weights was Selco brand, and the wire was identified as Walkersyn 900 machine tool 12, type THW/600V. It was last manufactured in 1962. Three days before, a body was seen floating half a mile south from where this set of remains were discovered but was not recovered by authorities. In 2021, Pinellas County Sheriff's Office sought the services of Parabon NanoLabs (Parabon), a DNA technology company in Virginia that specializes in advanced DNA analysis services. One of the services used in this case was DNA phenotyping. It is important to note that Snapshot composites are scientific approximations of appearance based on DNA and are not likely to be exact replicas of appearance. Parabon Nanolabs Genetic Genealogy Research indicated that Jane Doe 1972 has Italian ancestry. The identified genetic descents of Jane Doe 1972 are all originally from New Jersey and New York. Her possible first names are Rose or Julia. Possible surnames are Devito, Devita, Sorel, Gorel, or Goril.
