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 a drag queen or a transgender woman. The DNA Doe Project announced they took on the case in January 2019.
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 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 due to lack of evidence.
