Help Identify ‘Jane Doe 69’

Published November 29, 2007

Los Angeles County authorities recently released a sketch of “Jane Doe 69” in the hope that someone can identify a young Black woman whose body, with the name ‘Erin’ tattooed on an arm, was found east of the Los Angles River.

Craig Harvey of the coroner’s office said the tattoo was on the woman’s right inner arm, with a pink heart above the ‘i’ instead of a dot.

Harvey further indicated that the Black female, who was five feet, five inches tall, appeared to be between 18 and 25 years of age with black hair, brown eyes and pierced ears. Since no identifying documents were found on the body, Harvey explained that the coroner’s office listed her as Jane Doe 69.

While detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Robbery-Homicide Divi-sion declined to announce the cause of death or the exact location of the body, Harvey indicated that it was discovered in an alley at the rear of 2009 First Street on Monday, November 19 at about 7:20 a.m.

The woman was wearing a medium-size T-shirt with the label AAA’ large-size white sweat pants with the label “Jerzees,” pink medium-size panties with the words “I Love you” and a “Charming” label and white socks, Harvey said.

The victim’s sketch is available from the LAPD’s Media Relations Department. Their telephone number is (213) 485-2586.

Anyone with any information about the victim or the circumstances of her death are urged to contact Investigator Dan Machian in the coroner’s office at (323) 343-0754.
Anonymous tipsters may call the 24-hour hot-line number at (323) 343-0714.
