JANE DOE 1972 04/25/1972 Beach Front between 620 and 640 Gulf Blvd., Belleair Beach, Florida 72-10045
On Tuesday, April 25, 1972 a deceased female was found about 6:30 a.m. by a 15 year old boy surfing near Seventh Street in Belleair Shores. The female was decapitated and nude. The body had approximately 10-12 pounds of weights tied around it. The autopsy revealed no identifiable scars or tattoos. The head was never recovered. 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 : the process of predicting physical appearance and ancestry from unidentified DNA evidence. Law enforcement agencies use the company’s Snapshot ® DNA Phenotyping Service (Snapshot) to generate leads in this criminal investigation. Using DNA evidence from this investigation, Parabon produced trait predictions for the associated person of interest (POI). Individual predictions were made for the subject’s ancestry, eye color, hair color, skin color, freckling, and face shape. By combining these attributes of appearance, a Snapshot composite was produced depicting what the POI may have looked like at 25 years old and 45 years old with an average body-mass index (BMI) of 22. These default values were used because age and BMI cannot be determined from DNA. 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. Environmental factors such as smoking, drinking, diet, and other non-environmental factors — e.g., facial hair, hairstyle, scars, etc. — cannot be predicted by DNA analysis and may cause further variation between the subject’s predicted and actual appearances.
