why do detectives refer to someone they've found dead that is unidentified as jane doe?
who is Jane Doe? why do they refer to them like that?

because we like having a name. without a name, when we're dead, we're a piece of meat.
dead males get called john doe. it's a very common name combination (john and doe) so they don't offend people. john or jane doe could be anybody.
