"Joanne English" was the alias used by a woman found murdered in 1980.

She is currently undergoing testing by the DNA Doe Project.


The victim's body was discovered by a passing motorist off an isolated rural road in Rockledge, Florida on October 11, 1980. She had been shot in the head.

Authorities learned that she had previously been arrested in Pinellas County, Florida while trying to discover her identity. The name that she gave was "Joanne English", which turned out to be false, along with a false social security number and date of birth.
