Dean and Tina Linn Clouse Memorial Fund

Texas murder victims inspire a movement

In January 2022, on the 41st anniversary of their discovery in a rural wooded area in Houston, Texas the identification of Dean and Tina Linn Clouse was announced to the world. The families soon launched the search for their missing infant daughter, Holly Marie. With the discovery of Holly alive and well in June, 2022, the Clouse and Linn families now turn to helping other unidentified crime and accident victims. They want to help other families affected by lost loved ones. They want to share HOPE.


Many law enforcement agencies need your help funding cold case investigations for violent crimes and unidentified remains. They also need your DNA available in GEDmatch. Help us help them.

Genealogy For Justice™:
Unknown persons no longer unknown

In 2017, the FBI estimated that investigators were able to close only 62% of murders and only 35% of sexual assaults. Approximately 4,400 unidentified bodies are recovered each year.

As of 2018, we now have the technology to identify Does and many of the perpetrators of unsolved violent crimes.

Some jurisdictions need help to fund these cases.
