Douglas John Doe is a male whose skull was found in a desert area near Douglas, Arizona on December 25, 1988.

Case

The victim's skull was found by a private citizen checking traps in the area. He found the skull on top of the ground embedded about an inch into the ground. He stated that he was in the area in early November and had not seen the skull then. A brief search of the area by police failed to locate additional remains.

Although the area is heavily travelled by people who cross the border illegally, the forensic anthropology report states the skull is likely a "trophy skull."
