The Coast is all too familiar with the story of Jane Doe, the mystery woman buried, and the family that has tried to identify her. Now, three court hearings later, a judge has granted the family's wishes: Jane Doe will be exhumed and identified. Coroner Jim Faulk contacted the family after noticing a similarity between Jane Doe's autopsy photos and those of Nelda Hardwick of Louisiana. Hardwick's family has driven from Illinois repeatedly, hoping to have their request granted. Coroner Faulk delivered the news to Hardwick's family. Faulk says, "I feel real good for the family. After this is all over with, they can finally start healing from the experience. I called them, called Lori up in Illinois and told her and she actually started crying so..." Hardwick's family is grateful for the efforts of Coroner Faulk, as well as the public support they have received here on the Coast. They want Jane Doe to be given a proper burial whether or not she is their Nelda Hardwick.
