California, Mexico team up to identify bodies

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office in California has established a partnership with the Mexican consulate to hopefully identify some of the forty-odd Jane and John Does lying around the county. Santa Cruz County is in central California, quite a distance from the border, but it seems there are a lot of Mexican immigrants there (perhaps there are a lot all over California) and there’s a very good chance that many of those unidentifieds were Mexican nationals.

I think this is a great thing. I wish more nations would cooperate like this to solve crimes.

    It would be nice if Pima County, Arizona and the southern counties of Texas would get involved as well. Doe Network has dozens (if not hundreds) of UID cases that probably involve people who died while trying to illegally cross the border.

      Oh yeah, I totally agree. All the border states should get involved in this.

    That’s nice to hear! Hopefully some families will get some closure now!
