Woodlawn Jane Doe, who may have used the name Jasmine or "Jassy," was a young woman who was found murdered in 1976 in Baltimore, Maryland.


The Jane Doe was found lying in a cemetery lacking clothing, but was covered in a white sheet with bandannas covering her face. A drug that was possibly used to tranquilize her was found in her system, which was likely used by her killer to keep her from resisting rape, which he successfully accomplished. The Jane Doe was then beaten and strangled.

A new lead links the girl to a family from Puerto Rico or Colombia that immigrated to Boston and resided in Jamaica Plain, Boston, Massachusetts. She may have also attended school near that location. Police have not released the name of the possible identity and wish to receive more information from the public. The family of the girl has not been located.
