Welcome to The Doe Letters website. My name is Michele Freeman. I create and maintain The Doe Letters. This website is devoted to unidentified murder victims (also known as a John, Jane, or Trans* Doe) in the United States.

About The Doe Letters

My goal is to attract attention to cold case homicides of unknown deceased persons by writing letters to the Does. Included in each letter are details about the Doe's death along with any public information available. I separate the letters into three categories: State where the remains were located, the Decade in which the remains were discovered, and Gender of the remains (Male, Female, Trans*).

All Doe Letters are public and can be read for free any time on this site. If you would like to receive new Doe Letters straight to your inbox for FREE, please click the FOLLOW button in the top right-hand corner of the page.
