Rockledge Jane Doe

Rockledge Jane Doe

On October 11, 1980 a passing motorist found the body of a black woman on the east shoulder of an isolated rural road about 100 yards north of Barnes Boulevard in Rockledge, Brevard County, Florida. She had been shot in the head and the case is considered a homicide. She was 21-30 years old, weighed about 120 pounds, was 5’6, and had brown hair and eyes.

During the search for the woman’s identity the investigators discovered that she had been arrested in Pinellas County, about 150 miles to the west. The name she gave when booked was “Joanne English”, which turned out to be false, along with her Social Security number and date of birth. DNA, fingerprints, and dental records are available for comparison.
