Apache Junction Jane Doe was a young woman found deceased in 1992.

It was announced that her DNA was successfully sequenced by the DNA Doe Project.


On February 13, 2020, the DNA Doe Project announced on their twitter that she might have substantial ties to the following areas:

  • Virginia: Pittsylvania and Halifax Counties
  • Southwestern United States: Southern California, Pima County in Arizona and Bexar County in Texas.
  • Mexico: Nuevo Leon, Sinaloa, Sonora, Tamaulipas, Jalisco and Baja California Peninsula.

A list of last names that have been associated with the Jane Doe can be found on this Facebook post. DNA testing done by the DNA Doe Project disputed speculation that she may have had Native American or White ancestry, as it showed that the victim was biracial: having a parent of Mexican descent, and a parent of Black descent, having ties to Virginia.
