"In 2020, the Pennsylvania State Police worked with NCMEC to leverage advanced DNA testing to help produce leads that could identify Beth Doe or a close relative to her. NCMEC engaged DNA Labs International to produce a DNA extract from skeletal remains from the case. In November 2020, the DNA extract was sent to Othram. The Othram team used a combination of Forensic-Grade Genome Sequencing® and proprietary human enrichment to produce a genealogical profile for Beth Doe. In February 2021, Othram returned the genealogical profile to NCMEC and DNA Labs International. They identified a top match in a genealogical database with over 1700cM of shared DNA to Beth Doe. Investigative work by the Pennsylvania State Police revealed the very close match to be that of Luis Colon Jr., a nephew to Beth Doe. Luis confirmed that his father’s sister, Evelyn Colon, had not been heard from since the mid-1970s. Incredibly, Luis had uploaded his DNA profile to many genealogical databases hoping to reconnect to Evelyn.

After 44 years, and thanks to data uploaded by Luis and the efforts of so many groups, working as team, Beth Doe was identified as fifteen-year-old Evelyn Colon. Colon, a Puerto Rican native, had been living in Jersey City, NJ with her boyfriend/father of her child prior to her death. The boyfriend, Luis Sierra, was arrested in March 2021 and charged with the homicide."

"On March 5, 2021, the Newton County Indiana Coroner’s Office (NCICO) positively identified a woman whose body was found along Beaver Creek in the Willow Slough State Fish and Wildlife Area on August 5, 1988, as that of Jenifer Noreen Denton from Joliet, Illinois. The DNA Doe Project (DDP) had been working with NCICO to identify the deceased using genetic genealogy since late 2019.

Jenifer Denton was born in 1963 and was twenty-four years old when she went missing from her Joliet home. She left behind her one-year-old daughter and all her personal belongings. When she was found, it was determined that Jenifer had been shot at least once in the head. This case is still considered to be open and further investigations are underway into this murder."

From the above article:

“Financial help from the Montana Department of Justice’s Sexual Assault Kit Initiative program enabled the Sheriff’s Cold Case Unit to work with Othram labs earlier this year in an effort to identify the remains. Othram Labs conducted advanced DNA analysis “which enabled us to initiate a forensic genetic genealogy investigation,” the news release states. Following interviews with family members, and confirming the conclusions with additional DNA testing of relatives, the Sheriff’s Office conclusively identified the remains as Lucas’s.”

I like seeing more collaboration between DNA labs and law-enforcement to identify people. They would’ve never figured out these remains belong to Janet Lucas. The family wasn’t even looking in Montana at all, it appears. @SheWhoMustNotBeNamed Do you have Janet in any of your data bases?
