Jane and John Doe
Incident Date: 1982
Two bodies-one adult male and one adult female, were found washed up along the San Juan River in Archuleta County. The female body was found a few weeks before the male’s body was discovered, but authorities tied the two together. Jane Doe had been strangled to death and John Doe had been shot twice with a small caliber weapon.
To this day, Jane and John have not been identified and the killer has not been apprehended. The greatest clue in the case was a weathered note found in the dead woman’s pocket. The note was eventually found to be the name and phone number of Marilyn Cobianco, a resident of Farmington, New Mexico. Cobianco could not explain how her name and phone number ended up in Jane’s pocket. The only clue found on John Doe was his t-shirt, which advertised a brothel in Nevada.
A few years later when Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents went to see Jane and John Doe’s graves, they found fresh flowers on John’s resting place. No substantive evidence of the identities of the two nor who killed them and motive has ever been determined.
