This is an update to the episode "What happened to Publicker Jane Doe," from November of 2020. Make sure you listen to that episode before starting this one.
The remains of a young woman were found on the property of the abandoned Publicker distillery in Bensalem in January of 1988. For more than 30 years, she was known only as Publicker Jane Doe. Bensalem Police Detective Chris McMullin has spent much of his career trying to find out her name. And then earlier this year, it happened. Through the efforts of the Bensalem Police Department and their law enforcement partners, the scientists at Bode Technology, and the incredible work of the DNA genealogy team lead by Yolanda McClary – we now know that Publicker Jane Doe is Lisa Todd. This episode is about how the remains of Lisa Todd were identified, and what it means for everyone who has been invested in this case that Publicker Jane Doe has a name.
