Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Princess Doe is the name given to an unidentified homicide victim found in Blairstown, New Jersey, United States. The body was a young female between the ages of 14 and 18. The approximate height of the victim was 5'2" and the weight was 110 lbs. The body was discovered at the Cedar Ridge Cemetery in Blairstown early on the morning of Thursday, July 15, 1982.

As of December, 2008 Princess Doe still remains unidentified. No arrests were ever made in the case. The Warren County Prosecutors office is the law enforcement agency investigating the case and still considers the case active. The body was buried in the Cedar Ridge Cemetery, not far from where she was discovered, in January 1983. The remains of Princess Doe were exhumed in 1999 so that samples could be collected for DNA testing and the body was re-buried in the same grave.

On July 15, 2007 a graveside memorial service was held for the 25th anniversary of Princess Doe being discovered. Over 100 citizens attended as well as several reporters. The case has been featured as part of an HBO special as well is being covered thoroughly in the print media, including the New York Times. The case is also featured on the America's Most Wanted Website. Currently, there are efforts underway to get the case renewed media attention in hopes of somebody recognizing Princess Doe.

Lt. Kranz (now retired), the lead investigator from the Blairstown Police Department, coined the name, 'Princess Doe' early in the investigation and also managed to get the case covered extensively in the media. The case was used as the impetus for recording unidentified crime victims in the NCIC database at the national level. Princess Doe became the first such case entered by the FBI director.
