Dori has been missing since the night of Jan. 10, 2006. Her credit cards, bank accounts and passport have not been used since her disappearance. Having a good heart may have led to her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
Her family is seeking your help. Her sister, Donajean, has created a love filled web site with photos, information and updates. Please visit the site and read about Dori… it will touch your heart and make you so damn angry, all at the same time.
Dori was last seen leaving the St. Lucie Inn, a local nightspot where she spent some of her free time with friends. Before leaving she told a friend that she was taking two men (who claimed to be U.S. Marines) back to her home in St. Lucie County because they had nowhere else to stay.
The last person known to speak with Dori was an ex-boyfriend who called her home around 9:30 that night. After he heard voices in the background… Dori told him the men were Marines who had been wounded in the Iraqi War, they didn’t have anywhere to stay and that she'd invited them to stay the night in her home. She stated one man was going to sleep on the sofa bed and the other man would sleep on the couch.
Neighbors later reported to investigators… they heard what sounded like an argument resonating from Dori’s house at around midnight but did not call police. At approximately 3:00 a.m. Dori’s house was in flames. The fire department determined that the fire was arson.
Dori’s black 1998 Toyota Corolla was seen pulling out of the driveway at the time of the fire. The car was found some 80 miles away in a remote area of Glades County, completely destroyed by fire.
One man is described as Caucasian, about 25-35-years-old, tall, weighing about 175-200 lbs., wearing a ball cap, with a stud earring in his left ear. The second man is described as having a darker complexion than the first man, and may be an American Indian or Hispanic.

Authorities found this unidentified woman on June 6, 2006 inside a tent along a service trail south of San Pedro Avenue, just off of Highway 1 in Pacifica in San Mateo County California. The tent contained many books, including two Bibles with several scriptures noted, a “Busy Women’s Journal” and Harry Potter.
Dental work is all the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office has to determine her identity.
The woman is believed to be in her 40s. An anthropology report places her age between 33 years old and 46 years old. A dental report estimates her age anywhere from 25 years old to 40 years old. She weighed approximately 130 pounds and was between 5 feet 4 inches tall and 5 feet 6 inches tall. She had brown, straight and stringy hair with gray streaks. Yellowing of the cranial bones suggest possible tetracycline therapy for acne.
Her body was badly decomposed, and they couldn't determine a cause of death. There were no signs of trauma and some of the woman's writings indicate that she intended to starve herself to death.
Her fingerprints were run and they revealed her picture, a name, date of birth and place of birth. It was all fake.
At one time she had been booked into San Mateo County Jail by the California Highway Patrol. The problem is when she was booked in she gave a false name. She said she was Sam Smith. The woman gave a date of birth of Jan. 20, 1960 with a birthplace of Louisville, Ky. The Coroner’s Office did not find any record of a Sam Smith matching her description in Jefferson County, Ky.
The only thing the Coroner’s Office knows for certain is the woman once received high-quality dental work. The Coroner’s Office is hoping a dentist somewhere may recognize her face and remember performing the work, Gamble said.
She was wearing: Gray colored fleece jacket with zipper (LL bean's men XL) Navy blue nylon/Dacron pants (Cherokee XL) Dark blue pants with waist snap/ Drawstring (Merona M)
Anyone with information about this woman should contact Senior Deputy Coroner Kristine Gamble with the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office at (650) 312-5562.
