    In 1980, Michele Dee Gates was 13 years old and living in Oregon when she was suspected of drowning a four year old girl named Ruth Anne O'Neil, known as Ruthie to her family and friends. Because Michele was Ruth Anne’s babysitter and she had taken her for ice cream that day, she was brought in for questioning alone on two separate occasions. Police confronted her on some inconsistent statements she had given, after which, she admitted to drowning little Ruth Anne. This is the twisted saga of Michele Dee Gates.

    Racine County Jane Doe | Peggy Lynn Johnson Schroeder

    Racine County Jane Doe | Peggy Lynn Johnson Schroeder

    Back in 1994, an 18 year old woman walked into a medical clinic in McHenry, Illinois seeking help. Her mother had just died, leaving her all on her own, with no other family to turn to. This young woman was cognitively impaired and vulnerable, living on the streets, alone. At the clinic, she met a 54 year old registered nurse named Linda LaRoche. LaRoche recognized right away that this young woman was impaired and took her into her own home in McHenry, a suburb of Chicago. LaRoche told her that she would help her get her high school diploma and provide her with room and board, what she asked for in exchange, was for her to be a housekeeper and a nanny to her children. This young woman has a name, Peggy Lynn Johnson. She had no way of knowing that she was about to lose her dignity and freedom in life and her identity in death. This is the story of the Racine County, Jane Doe.
