Reet Jurvetson (September 23, 1950 - November 14, 1969), formerly known as "Sherry Doe" was a young woman found stabbed to death in 1969. She was identified in 2016. Reet was born in Sweden to Estonian refugees, raised in Canada and later moved to California, where she was murdered.


Her body was found with over 150 stab wound to her neck and upper body, along with defensive wounds on her hands and arms. She had died one or two days before.

It is known Reet left her home in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to meet with a man named "Jean" or "John" in California. Weeks after her arrival, Jurvetson contacted family stating she was happy in America. Some witnesses claimed to have seen a woman named "Sherry" who matched her description among members of the Manson Family, known for their murderous crimes at the time, but it turned out Sherry was alive. Charles Manson himself denied killing Reet Jurvetson.


  • She may have been murdered by the Zodiac Killer, a serial killer who killed young people in California from the late 60's to the early 70's
  • She may have been murdered by John/Jean
