Carl Junior Isaacs, Jr. was John "Clinton" Doe - Wisconsin 1995

BY DARK SLEUTH


UPDATE:  June 14, 2022

On February 21, 2019, DNA Doe Project announced that they had tentatively identified John "Clinton" Doe. For 3 years there was no public confirmation until now. The Rock County Sheriff's Office has identified him as Carl Junior Isaacs, Jr. , a 20-year-old man from Delavan, Wisconsin. 

According to Channel 3000 news, Isaacs "walked away from the Walworth County jail in April 1995". He was never reported missing. His remains were found in November of 1995.  

Rock County Sheriff's Office asks anyone with information on this case to call 608-757-7911

Additional Update: June 17, 2022:

Local reporting from The Gazette Extra has added more details to the circumstances surrounding Carl Junior Isaacs, Jr.'s disappearance.

At the time, he was serving a five-year sentence for burglary, but was allowed to serve it under house arrest with electronic monitoring.  

Court records show that he disappeared from his mother's house on April 16, 1995. The article also states, "or at least, that is when the state-appointed official who supervised his house arrest said he'd vanished without authorization." 

A warrant was issued for his arrest and continuously transferred from judge to judge until 2018.  

Isaacs is described as a troubled teenager who suffered from substance abuse issues starting in middle school. Per court records he "was cooperative with investigators in leading them to unravel a number of local burglaries involving people [he] was running with at the time".

In light of this new information, it is difficult to understand why he wasn't identified sooner. He disappeared from a neighboring county where there was a warrant for his arrest.

At about 9 a.m. on November 26, 1995, hunters came upon a set of skeletal remains in a heavily wooded area along Turtle Creek near Clinton, Wisconsin.  

Authorities determined that the remains were that of a white male, 17-20 years old, about 5'6" in height and weighing approximately 140 lbs.  His hair was brown and straight, at about collar length. His eye color could not be determined. His cause of death was also not determined.  He had died in the fall or winter of 1994, about a year before his remains were found.

Unidentified John Doe - Fairfax County, Virginia 1972

 By Dark Sleuth


(Source: NCMEC)


On June 13, 1972, a teenager in Lorton, Virginia made a terrible discovery.  The body of a little boy was found below the Old Colchester Road bridge in Giles Run creek, then known as Massey Creek.  


The child was naked and none of his clothes were found nearby.  He was the victim of a beating, having suffered severe-blunt force injuries to the head.  Police believe he likely died 24 to 48 hours before his body was discovered.  His estimated age was 3 to 6 years old.   


I was not able to find much information on this case, which is both sad and surprising.  It needs more attention.  Local tv stations in Virginia should cover it. 


According to The Doe Network, his DNA is on file and can be used for comparisons.  


Physical Characteristics:

Estimated Age: 3-6

Sex: Male

Race: Black

Hair Color: Black

Eye Color: Brown

Estimated Height:  4 ft

Estimated Weight: 50 lbs

Distinguishing trait: circumcised

They belonged to a young woman.  Although she was found in 2002, authorities believe she had died at least 2 years prior to discovery. Her most distinguishing physical feature was an unrepaired cleft palate.
