Saginaw John Doe - Unidentified, Carbon County Jane Doe and Grace Doe-Indentified

Saginaw John Doe - Unidentified, Carbon County Jane Doe and Grace Doe-Indentified

On October 8, 1988, the Saginaw Police department was contacted by a resident of an Apartment house located in the 400 block of Carroll Street. According to Lieutenant Kendziorski, the resident noticed that one of the apartment doors was ajar. After taking a look inside and seeing what appeared to be a deceased person the resident called the police.  When police arrived they discovered the body of a 16-20 year old african american male, with a shotgun wound to his face.

Carbon County (Beth) Doe Identified as Evelyn Colon
Grace Doe Identified as Shawna Garber

These two young women were brutally murdered. Their cases were cold with little hope of ever being solved. Today, they became the perfect example of why identifying the unidentified is so important.
