Feb 1 2020: The DNA Doe Project has formally announced Live Oak Doe, their third Trans Doe Task Force submitted case. We can’t wait to be able to share updates with you as the case progresses.
Feb 16 2019: The Trans Doe Task Force reveals new forensic illustration of Live Oak Doe. See below:
Little information is available about Live Oak Doe, who was killed on July 10, 1986, in South Houston, Texas. It is apparent from details that this Doe was transgender or gender-variant.
These new forensic illustrations have been provided by illustrator Kim Parkhurst. We would like to thank Kim for these striking representations of this Doe and the care that went into this artwork. While Live Oak Doe did previously have a forensic illustration that is quite beautiful, new images of a Doe can help to reinvigorate interest in the case as we have seen in the case of Julie Doe.
