Our Mission, Team and Donations

Case Ravel started in 2015, with the goal of providing a resource for Doe cases. We hoped to maintain reliable case facts, while still allowing open-minded, respectful discussion. This effort arose in reaction to seeing how often facts were distorted or left out entirely by the media, making it difficult for anyone who didn’t have access to the original case files to separate the facts from fiction and human error.

Case Ravel hopes to serve the worldwide investigative community as a repository and place for sharing thoughts and insights, as well as providing media to support independent efforts restore John and Jane Does to their rightful names. We hope to resolve individual cases and advocate for laws that mandate reporting.  We are willing to combine efforts with law enforcement agencies, supporting personnel, and sincere armchair sleuths.

Help us keep Case Ravel.
Our small team and followers spend countless hours working to bring people to their families.
Aside from time, costs are incurred for hosting the website,  document services, DNA testing and more.
If you would like to contribute towards any costs directly, please contact us!

We are seeking volunteers for the following:

Content Writers: Some cases have more details provided than others and these require fact-checking research and written content.
