New Castle County, Delaware, John Doe 1978

On April 8th, 1978, skeletal remains of a Black male, aged 17-30, were discovered at a landfill in Wilmington, Delaware.  The cause of death was undetermined.  After an examination of his remains, it was determined that John Doe suffered from a severe pelvic deformity that would have caused him to walk with a noticeable limp on his right side and it is believed that he would have had to walk with the assistance of crutches or a cane.  John Doe also suffered from minor spina bifida, something he may not have known he had.

Moxxy Forensic Investigations has teamed up with the Wilmington Police Department in Delaware to utilize investigative genetic genealogy to return John Doe his identity.  Moxxy Forensics has partnered with Intermountain Forensics for all necessary laboratory work to be conducted.

Investigative genetic genealogy began on this case on April 5th, 2024. Through this, it has been determined that John Doe has African American ancestral ties to South Carolina, specifically Georgetown County, and Delaware.

Missing Person:  Sherry Lynn (Crossland) Eastman

​Moxxy Forensic Investigations has been requested to assist in researching the whereabouts of missing person Sherry Lynn (Crossland) Eastman.

Sherry was born October 4th, 1956, in Illinois to Jimmy Crossland (1920–1992) and Alberta Miles (1934–1966). Sherry attended various schools in California during the early 1970s, before moving to Bexar, Texas, where she married William Scott Stephan Eastman on December 29th, 1979.

Shortly after their marriage, the couple were transferred by the United States Army to Bremerhaven, Germany, where their son was born in 1981. Not long after, the family returned to the United States, and moved to Searcy County, Arkansas. Sherry and William divorced in 1982 or 1983 in Tennessee.

According to a document dated April 5th, 1982, allegedly signed by Sherry, she gave temporary guardianship of her son to Richard & Valeria George.

Sherry’s last known contact was December 20th, 1982, in San Patricio County, Texas, when she sold property she inherited, possibly receiving a large sum of money in exchange.

In 1986, a falsified affidavit was signed and recorded in Marshall, Searcy, Arkansas, stating that there was a son born to Richard and Valeria George in their home. A delayed birth certificate was issued to the couple for their “son,” issuing him a new name and social security number.

The Georges' ostensible son was unaware of his biological mother until he took a consumer DNA test that did not link him to the couple he considered his parents. The siblings he was raised with confirmed that Sherry was his mother and that “she was no more.”

Documentation relating to Sherry’s last known banking receipts, her son’s birth certificate, as well as time spent abroad, amongst other personal information, was found among Richard George’s possessions after his death.

Extensive research has been completed over the last several years, but what became of Sherry remains unknown.

If you have information on the whereabouts of Sherry Lynn (Crossland) Eastman, please email Kaycee Connelly at kaycee@moxxyforensics.com.

Gulf Shores, Alabama, "Dante" Doe

On September 24th, 2005; the body of a Latino male was recovered from the Gulf Shores Public Beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The man had drowned after being swept under by the heavy surf as the result of Hurricane Rita. He is believed to have died minutes prior to his recovery.

The man is estimated to have been 20 to 29 years of age, approximately 5’5” to 5’6” in height, and weighed 125 to 148 pounds. He had black hair, along with a mustache and goatee. A one and a half inch scar was noted on the left side of his abdomen, with a one inch scar on his left knee, and had several scars on his right knee. No tattoos or other identifying characteristics were noted.

Investigators believe that the man was not from the Gulf Shores area and possibly not native to the country. Fingerprints from the John Doe were run through the FBI and U.S. Department of Immigration and Naturalization, but did not yield any matches.

Genealogical analysis shows that the man may have had one parent who had ancestry in Northern Central America, countries of interest including Guatemala and Venezuela, and the other parent having ancestry in Southern Mexico, with likely ties to Oaxaca.
