    After 40 years, Princess Doe identified as Dawn Olanick (17); Arthur Kinlaw (68) charged with her murder

    A girl who was dubbed Princess Doe after her remains were found 40 years ago in a New Jersey cemetery has been identified as a Long Island teenager, authorities announced Friday.

    Charges have been filed against the man they believe killed Dawn Olanick, 17, of West Babylon, New York, the Warren County, New Jersey, prosecutor's office announced. The suspect, Arthur Kinlaw, 68, is currently serving 20 years to life in Sullivan County, New York, on two first-degree murder convictions.

    Kinlaw tried to lure Olanick into prostitution and killed her after she refused, authorities said, according to Lehigh Valley Live. Her remains were found July 25, 1982, in Cedar Ridge Cemetery in Blairstown, in northwestern New Jersey near the Pennsylvania border. Authorities have said she was beaten beyond recognition.

    Residents of the area gave her a burial, and she became known as Princess Doe, a name given to her by investigators who sought to identify her. Her burial site contains a gravestone that reads: "Princess Doe. Missing from home. Dead among strangers. Remembered by all."

    She was wearing distinct clothing and the nails on her right hand were painted red while her left hand had no nail polish, according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

    Princess Doe's tooth and eyelash were submitted to Astrea Forensics in 2021, for possible DNA extraction. "They are able to extract DNA from samples that are degraded or otherwise would provide no value," said Carol Schweitzer, forensic supervisor at the center.

    The center said DNA testing and investigative genetic genealogy techniques would ultimately identity Princess Doe as Olanick.

    Information about a lawyer who could speak on Kinlaw's behalf about the new charges wasn't immediately available.

    Olanick's identity was finally confirmed April 29, authorities said.

    Her mom had kicked her out of the house and I guess no one ever reported her missing.
