Santa Barbara County Sheriff Website Info on Lompoc Jane Doe...

The below information comes from the official website of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff Office. Note that no eye color is mentioned and that the body had to be exhumed and the skull used by a forensic artist to obtain the composite of her possible appearance. The link has several artist conception reconstructions.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
On Sunday, August 3, 1969 the body of a murder victim was found by hunters near a quarry on Highway 1, south of Lompoc. The victim's identity was not established following a lengthy investigation, hence the "Jane Doe" identity. She died from multiple stab wounds.

Jane Doe is described as being a white female between 16-25 years of age, approximately 5'4" tall, about 125 pounds and medium-brown colored shoulder length hair. Jane Doe had pierced ears, current dental work and most notably, "bucked teeth". Jane Doe was wearing what appeared to be home-made clothing with a flower print. The clothing appeared consistent with that worn by youth during this time period.

Jane Doe's remains were buried at the Lompoc Cemetery in 1969. In 2001, Sheriff Department Detectives exhumed Jane Doe's remains. Tissue samples were obtained for DNA comparison purposes. Jane Doe's skull and jaw were sent to a Forensic Reconstruction Artist, who created a rendition of Jane Doe's appearance.

I see what you mean about the blue eyes detail. I wonder where they got that information since the artist's rendition of Jane Doe's appearance has brown eyes. Also, I wonder if the dental work appears to have been done abroad (different techniques, methods, materials, etc.) or if LE could not find a dentist who remembered filling 19 cavities in the previous year.

Check out the thread on John Norman Collins in the "non-Zodiac crimes" topic of this website. It is possible that he or his sidekick Andrew Manuel might have murdered the Lompoc Jane Doe

Serial killer John Norman Collins, of Michigan, was visiting California in June and July of 1969. It is believed that he murdered a 17-year-old girl named Roxie Ann Phillips on 30 June. She was from Milwaukie, Oregon and was visiting relatives in Salinas, CA before continuing on to Lompoc, CA, where she was to meet up with her father and stepmother...

It has been 43 years since the girl called "Lompoc Jane Doe" was brutally murdered. She remains unidentified and her murder unsolved.

Her case was the inspiration for Sue Grafton's novel, "Q is for Quarry".

Some of the possible suspects mentioned on other threads are Zodiac, the Manson Family, and Andrew Manuel.

Manuel was a roomate and traveling companion of John Norman Collins, aka the Michigan Coed Killer. The two made a trip from Michigan to California in a stolen camping trailer during June and July 1969. It is most likely that Collins murdered Roxie Ann Phillips, age 17 during that time. Upon his return to Michigan in late July, he was arrested for the murder of Ypsilanti, Michigan coed, Karen Sue Bienemann. (Collins was subsequently convicted of murdering Karen, but was never tried for other murders that he was suspected of having committed.)

California requested extradition of Collins to stand trial for the murder of Roxie Ann Phillips. The Michigan Governor, William Milliken, refused initially because Collins was appealing his conviction. When his appeal was turned down, Milliken offered Collins to California, but by then, California declined to prosecute - mainly due to bugetary considerations. Collins remains in prison today in Marquette, Michigan.

Following Collins' arrest in July '69, Andrew Manuel fled to California and then to Arizona where he was arrested in early August 1969. So he was definitely in California around the time of Lompoc Jane Doe's murder. He was given lenient treatment and a light sentence for vehicle theft before being set free.

There is also a possibility that the Lompoc Jane Doe could have been a victim of the Manson Family or a member of that group. Two other girls were killed in a similar manner - numerous stab wounds - in the same time frame and just to the south.

It was believed that those two other girls had links to the Manson Family, but their murders remain unsolved as well.

All in June 1963:

James L. Summer
Vern Charles 'Smokey' Smith
Linda Faye Edwards + Robert George Domingos
Pamela Youngblood
Linda Ladd and Teresa Fant (unreadable)
'Another girl'

although they can't be her as she had died just days before her recovery in 1969. No one known missing there at that time, as far as I know.
