Who is Helen Doe, unidentified Native American female with feather earring, hitchiker and victim of truck collision that caught fire on May 14,1991? Before accident truck passed through Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Washington State authorities travel now through Kansas searching for cold case clues
===
Kalama, #Washington - Nearly 30 years have gone by since a fatal collision in Washington State took the lives of a Missouri truck driver and his still unidentified, unauthorized female passenger.

The Washington State Patrol Cold Case Team sent a representative to follow the presumed route from Missouri to Washington, by using fuel purchase records to determine the most likely route.

There were two fuel stops in Missouri, and then a gap of more than 24 hours and more than 500 miles until the next known fuel stop in Limon Colorado.

Washington State Patrol representatives are stopping at gas stations and rest stops along a westbound route through Kansas, posting flyers asking for anyone with information to please reach out to them.

“A family is missing their loved one, and we really want to give her a name, and that’s why we’re doing this now and we’ll continue to do this. We may be talking again in ten more years. hopefully not.” Washington State Patrol, Program Manager/WA State AMBER Coordinator, Carri Gordon says.

Representatives of the Kansas Bureau of Investigations Missing persons/human trafficking division met with the Washington State Patrol at Sapp Bros truck stop in Junction City, Kansas to assist with placing the flyer inside the business.

If you have any information regarding this case, please contact the Washington State Patrol Cold Case Team at 425-401-7740.

If you have information which could help to identify this woman, you can call also the Kansas Bureau of Investigations Missing Persons Tip Line at 785-296-4017.

She was a passenger in a semi-truck headed south on I-5 near Kalama, nestled in the shadow of Mount St. Helens. That day — May 14, 1991 — there was a backup on the freeway. The semi was going full speed, but the driver wasn’t able to stop and slammed into the rear-end of a paper-hauling truck blocked by the backup.

“The vehicle immediately burst into flames,” Washington State Patrol Detective Sgt. Stacy Moate told KOIN 6 News recently. “The fuel tanks ruptured and it just kept growing from there.”

Both the driver — 26-year-old Lester Harvel of Missouri — and his passenger died.

“There were many people that tried to get in to help the driver and the passenger and they were just unable to.”

“The trucking company had no record of an authorized passenger to be in the (truck) that day. So we assume that the truck driver had picked her up somewhere along his route,” Moate said.

Investigators believe Harvel picked her up as a hitchhiker or at a rest area somewhere along the way, but they haven’t been able to figure out when or where. They mapped his fuel receipts over the one-week trip: Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

Helen Doe was likely a Native American woman in her 20s. Witnesses said she had a long, dark ponytail and a feather earring, was wearing a black vest and had multiple rings on her fingers. She had “a very long, slender nose and her face was very slender as well,” Murry said. There was a space between her bottom 2 front teeth, and she likely walked with a limp from scoliosis.

It would benefit nearly every person in the US to read An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States. This was one of the most important books that I have ever read.

Most of you have realized that the history we were taught in school is incomplete. United States history was mostly written by white men for the benefit of white men and white society. Unfortunately the "history" most of us are raised on is not only incomplete, it is an all-out lie.

Reading this book is an important step in removing these fallacies that have become deeply ingrained into our brains and overcoming them with truth. This truth hurts. It's not easy to read. But if we are to create a society that is equitable and just, it is absolutely imperative to understand the foundation of what we currently call the United States.

This nation was founded on genocide, murder, slavery, lying, manipulating and delusion... It was not a war that "won this nation." It was not "fairly purchased." It was stolen with atrocious tactics by both the government and many citizens.

For those thinking they don't want to dwell on the past... Well, this isn't the past. This is the present. This "history" has not only been continuing during our lifetime, but the past forms the present. We will never understand the present and live honestly, if we do not understand the foundation of our existence as we know it.

Read this book. Educate yourself. And then change your life to abolish the lies and live for equity, justice and regeneration.
