San Mateo County Doe (also known as Pillar Point Doe) was an individual found murdered in California in 1983. It is unknown if the victim was genderfluid or a transgender woman.

The DNA Doe Project took on the case in January 2019 and found a suitable match by October.

Case

The victim was discovered not long after death on a beach in Half Moon Bay, California. The victim had been beaten, stabbed, and strangled. Additionally, the wrists had been slashed.

Investigators theorize the victim may have been picked up in a San Francisco neighborhood by a group of individuals who may have attacked in anger once they discovered the individual was not a cisgender woman.

Two men were identified as persons of interest in the case but were never charged resulting from the lack of evidence.

Tentative identification

The DNA Doe Project announced on October 8, 2019, that they had tentatively identified the victim and are awaiting confirmation from law enforcement.[1]
