Broward County John Doe was a man who was found bound, tortured, shot and partially burned in a wooded area in Pembroke Pines, Florida. A Kentucky woman identified as Tammy Gale Crider had been found in the same place, shot to death, a day earlier. Law enforcement has considered their cases may be connected, but no one has ever been charged in either death.


John Doe's decomposing remains were found in a wooded area in Pembroke Pines, Florida. His killer had tortured him by shoving a rag down his throat and then wrapping his head in duct tape. John Doe had then been shot about three times, and finally set on fire.

Investigators immediately sought a connection to the murder of a 19 year old named Tammy Gale Crider. Tammy's body had been found just a day before John Doe, around 70 feet away from the spot he was killed. Tammy had also been shot and her killer had burnt her remains.

Although nobody has ever been charged in Miss Crider's death, the prime suspects are a criminal gang she started to associate with after she moved to Florida. The last time Tammy Gale Crider was seen alive was when members of this gang bailed her out of jail for drug charges, and according to witnesses they were "very rough with her" Investigators believed Tammy was killed because her accosiates believed she was going to testify against them for their various criminal activities.

Authorities believe Tammy Gale Crider and John Doe were both killed by this gang.
