  • Deanna Lee Criswell (officially known as "Jane Doe 19" and informally as the "Pima County Jane Doe" while she was unidentified) (September 20, 1971 - c. November 1987) was an American girl from Spokane and Seattle, Washington, who was known for being identified more than 27 years after she had been murdered at age sixteen. Her body was found on November 25, 1987 in Marana, Arizona near Tucson; she had been shot to death. The Marana Police Department announced her identification on February 11, 2015, aided by the sophisticated technology of forensic facial reconstruction and DNA analysis, and by websites set up by amateurs to help identify missing and unidentified persons. After Criswell's parents divorced, family members became estranged, and she had periods of running away from home. She was never officially reported as missing. But in 2014, her aunt and uncle began to look for Criswell, whom they had seen only as a baby. They began to search newly available online databases, and focused on unidentified persons in Arizona after learning that their niece had called her sister from Tucson in late 1987. They came across "Pima County Jane Doe"'s profile online at the Doe Network. They believed the young woman's image, from a forensic facial reconstruction prepared by the FBI in 2010, resembled their niece. They contacted law enforcement, who obtained DNA from family members and were able to confirm the match. Authorities strongly suspected that William Ross Knight was the killer; Criswell had been involved with him when she went to Tucson. He had died in 2005 of illness in prison, where he had been sentenced on robbery charges. He had used a .22 caliber pistol in a robbery, the same size of the gun that killed Criswell. (en)
