Overview of 1973 Seminole County Jane Doe
The victim's remains were located in a densely wooded area used as a garbage dump near State Route 431 in Altamonte Springs. The location is along Forest City Road, near Lake Lotus. She was found underneath the body of 18-year-old Laura Lynn Harberts, a homicide victim for whom Joseph "Crazy Joe" Robert Spaziano, a member of the Outlaws motorcycle club, was charged with killing in the mid-1970's. A witness said that in the spring of 1973, she saw Spaziano at Daytona Beach with a young girl riding on the back of his motorcycle. The girl asked her to hold her purse for safekeeping. The girl didn't pick up her purse after the motorcycle ride. Five days later Spaziano showed up at her door and demanded the purse. She turned it over, but not before peeking inside for the identification. She told investigators that she remembered only that the girl was from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Spaziano avoided the death penalty in Ms. Harberts' case, as a key witness for the prosecution recanted his testimony which would have implicated Spaziano in the crime. His first-degree murder conviction was overturned in 1998 and Spaziano pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of second-degree murder. He is currently serving a life sentence in a Florida prison for the rape and mutilation of a teenage girl from Orlando, Florida. Chemical isotope testing suggested she was born in the Pacific Northwest or Western United States and resided in the Midwest prior to her death. The victim is known as "Ginger" to investigators. She was possibly a runaway.
