Atenguillo, a small town about 3 hours east of Puerto Vallarta in Mexico, is known for its beautiful church, El Templo de San Miguel Arcángel.

Our Dean and Tina Linn Clouse Memorial Fund and FHD Forensics are collaborating with the the Pima County Medical Examiner to help identify a young woman found near Tucson on November 30, 1985.

The skeletal remains of Picture Rocks Jane Doe (NamUs UP10102) were discovered in an area known for the indigenous petroglyphs that lent her temporary name. She was christened thus by the Medical Examiner’s anthropologist who began his tenure the year she was found.

Estimated at between 23 and 39 years of age, she would have been born between 1948 and 1965. She had brown hair and wore dark pink nail polish. A suspected homicide victim, she may have been killed in Arizona or California.

In early 2024, after sequencing her DNA, it was discovered that Picture Rocks Jane Doe’s ancestral ties are to the town of Atenguillo in Jalisco, as well as the surrounding areas of Mascota, Navidad, Mixtlan, San Pablo, and Guachinango. This area is about 3 hours east of Puerto Vallarta.

This young woman’s Atenguillo ancestors include the surnames Curiel, Duenas, Angel, Ramos, Sanchez, Macedo, and Quintero. More DNA samples from people with similar background are being sought in order to restore her identity.

We need your help to give Picture Rocks Jane Doe her name back. In addition to underwriting her DNA sequencing and genealogy research, Genealogy For Justice is sponsoring an extensive community outreach and DNA testing program in order to gain the DNA matches required to identify her.
