i wasn't aware of there ever being a "real" Jane Doe i was under the impression they made that and the John Doe up for the victims they couldn't identify to give them at least the dignity of a name.

Jane Doe and John Doe are names they give to people they can't identify. It's rather morbid to think that anyone was ever named that.
Hope that helps.
