    Windsurfers camping in the area near Bahia Honda State Recreation area, located near mile marker 35 on US 1 in the Florida Keys, made the discovery of the girl. Her body was laying on a dirt trail in a heavily wooded area. She was beaten and strangled to death with her bikini top. Her face was bruised by a beating, apparently when she was killed.

    Case History
    Florida Jane Doe's body and clothing was found in a dense wooded area. Her nude body was found February 15 near a frequently used illegal campground on West Summerland Key, just south of the Bahia Honda Channel Bridge.

    For over a decade, police in the Florida Keys have been trying to solve a mystery -- a mystery involving a young girl. Sadly, this girl is only known as Florida Jane Doe. After all these years, detectives are still unable to find out who she is and what happened to her.

    The case began on February 15, 1991. Windsurfers camping in the area near Bahia Honda State Recreation area, located near mile marker 35 on US 1 in the Florida Keys, made the gruesome discovery of a young dead girl. Her body was laying on a dirt trail in a heavily wooded area. Police say the victim was a white female girl about 15 to 20 years old, who was beaten and strangled to death with her bikini top. Her face was bruised by a beating, apparently when she was killed. Investigators believe the victim was raped, but that has not been proved. An autopsy determined Florida Jane Doe had been killed the day before on Valentine's Day.

    Monroe County Sheriff's Office opened up a homicide investigation. First, they needed to identify the body. They had few clues to go on but they hoped one item would jog someone's memory. The girl was wearing a knitted, long-sleeved sweater with wide red, black and purple horizontal stripes; long knee length denim shorts; and black ankle-high Indian-moccasin booties with red stitching.

    Florida Jane Doe also has two tattoos including a large heart with the word "Love" in the middle of it on her upper left arm. The other tattoo is a cross with radiating lines of line behind it in the web of her left hand. The girl weighed about 145 pounds, had brown eyes and straight, collar-length dark brown hair. An autopsy indicated she had taken good care of her teeth and around age ten she had a molar extracted.

    She was seen by another eyewitness at mile marker 15 and around 6:30 that night at mile marker 17. That was the last sighting of the mystery girl.

    Detectives got tips early on and learned that Florida Jane Doe had been seen by motorists hitchhiking along US 1 in the Keys. Because of her clothing especially a sweater and moccasins, she stood out. Based on the information, police determined on Valentine's Day the girl was in Key West and walked northbound on US 1 on Big Coppitt Key, about ten miles north of Key West. She was seen by another eyewitness at mile marker 15 and around 6:30 that night at mile marker 17. That was the last sighting of the mystery girl.

    In 1993, police attempted to put a face to this unknown girl by creating a computerized photo of what Florida Jane Doe may look like. To this day, police have no information indicating where this girl is from or who she is, therefore, detectives are unable to solve this horrific murder. Detectives are asking again for people all over the country to take a look at the computerized photo, the clothes and the tattoos. One small tip could give them the answers they need to solve this case.

    Jane Big Pine Key Doe 1991

    An unidentified female was found on February 15, 1991 in a wooded area south of Bahia Honda Channel Bridge near a recreational area known as the “horseshoe.” The female had died within 24 hours of being found. Authorities received reports that the female might have been seen hitchhiking along northbound U.S. 1 the day prior.

    She is described as a white female between 16-25 years old. She was between 5’05” – 5’07” tall and weighed around 130 pounds. She had straight, short collar length dark brown hair. Both ears were pierced 4 times and she wore stud earrings. She also wore a silver TimeX watch on her right wrist. Found with the female was a long-sleeved cardigan sweater with wide rose and dark purple horizontal stripes (Forenza brand), blue denim shorts (Big Yank brand), a bikini top, and a pair of black ankle-high moccasin style shoes with red stitching and leather fringe down the back seem (Clicks brand, size 6 1/2 ).

    The female had stretch marks on her abdomen and two tattoos. One tattoo is of a heart with the word "Love" written inside of it. This was found on her left shoulder.


    The second tattoo is on her left hand between her thumb and forefinger of a small cross with radiating lines coming from it. The female also had two teeth on the top of her mouth extracted earlier in life. She was also suffering from ovarian and fallopian tube cysts that might have caused her abdominal pain and she might have sought medical assistance.

    The image shown is a facial reconstruction created by a NCMEC Forensic Artist and depicts what the female may have looked like in life.

    After 25 years, police continue to search for ID of ‘Valentine Doe’





    On February 15, 1991, police say the body of a young woman was found in a heavily wooded area near a shoreline of the Florida Keys.

    The woman, believed to be between the age of 16 and 25, had been sexually assaulted, beaten, and then strangled with the strings of her bikini top, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

    Investigators believe the woman had been murdered on Valentine’s Day, the day before her body was found, according to NCMEC. She was given the nickname of “Valentine Doe.”

    Witnesses reported seeing the woman hitchhiking the day of her murder on U.S. Highway 1, about 18 miles from where her body was found, NCMEC reported. Blood and drag marks were also discovered on a nearby dirt road, the organization added.

    An older model white pickup truck with a camper shell had been seen in the area in the days leading up to the woman’s death, according to NCMEC. The area is frequented by windsurfers and campers.

    A NCMEC forensic artist developed a facial reconstruction image of what the woman would have looked like, yet 25 years after her death, she remains unidentified.

    The woman was described as a white female weighing 145 pounds with brown eyes and straight, collar-length dark brown hair. She had four earrings in each ear and two tattoos, including a heart on her upper left arm and a cross on her left hand.

    The woman also had stretch marks on her abdomen, which indicated she had once been pregnant, according to NCMEC.

    Detectives with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office say they have exhausted the few leads they had in the case, though they remain hopeful that someone, someday, will come forward to identify the woman.

    Her murder is still under investigation.

    Anyone with information about “Valentine Doe” is asked to call the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office at 1-305-853-3211 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.

    The Athentic Forenza label, the words below it are in Italian meaning not accept substitutes?


    I found some of these labels on Etsy and Ebay, the clothing I could find so far was made in Korea, Italy, and China.
    The ones from China don't have the Italian text below the brandname though.




    Forenza Athentic Sportwear non accettare sostituti. Can't find any stores so far, only Etsy and Ebay.
