Jefferson County John Doe was a man killed in Kentucky in 2009. A photo of the victim was found on his cell phone inside his apartment, but it has not led to his identification.

Case

Just after midnight on December 3, 2009, police were called to the sound of gunfire at the Preston Oaks Apartment complex in Louisville, Kentucky. When they arrived, they found the victim outside his apartment with gunshot wounds.

In his apartment, he had several ID cards but they could not be verified as being legitimate.

Several individuals, as young as 14, were arrested in relation to this crime. It is believed that the victim was targeted in a robbery, and when he resisted and fled, he was killed.

Police do not believe the victim was from the United States, but the investigation has revealed that he may have family in West Palm Beach, Florida. The man is believed to be native to Mexico, Honduras, or El Salvador.
