Columbia County Jane Doe

On May 8th 1982, a passerby noticed something strange on the side of Petra Road. There, merely 60 feet from the pavement was the badly decomposed body of a female. Authorities did everything they could at the time in hopes of identifying her but by 1987, the case had gone cold and the remains were laid to rest in Wyocena, Wisconsin as a Jane Doe.

Barron County John Doe

On September 21, 1982 a group of loggers discovered the body of an unidentified male while working on a private property. Very little could be determined about who this individual had been in life as the body had been exposed to the elements for so long. Investigators from the Barron County’s sheriff’s department have worked tirelessly for the last 36 years in hopes of identifying and reuniting John Doe with his loved ones.
