The remains appear to be those of a person who has been dead more than a year, but age, sex and gender are yet to be determined.

Illinois State Police Lt. Greg Fernandez said the remains are not those of 19-year-old Anquiette Parker, who disappeared Nov. 6 with her 4-year-old cousin, Cermen "C.J." Toney, who Parker was babysitting.

I was browsing missing people from IL on theyaremissed.org, and when I started reading Cynthia's page something just clicked. The place she was last seen.... I had seen a DoeNetwork page that said the UID was found near a street with the same name. The citys were different though...the UID in Brooklyn IL and Cynthia in Fairmont IL. So I google mapped it....:eek: It's the same street! Not only that, but it's the same block!

http://www.google.com/maps (http://www.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=st.clair+ave+Fairmont+City,+IL,+USA&layer=&sll=38.643691,-90.113983&sspn=0.080177,0.154495&ie=UTF8&z=13&ll=38.645031,-90.136986&spn=0.040088,0.077248&om=0&msid=112437574560472791418.000001120ba84682b8e16&msa=0) Should take you to a google map of the area. You can see just how close Brooklyn IL is to Fairmont IL.

I remember reading about a case- where the lady was supposedly driving with relatives a husband and an aunt or cousin and went missing after their car broke down. I remember she had a colostomy bag. And it seems like she was either Hispanic of native American.
I am going to check and see what I can find out.
Does anyone else remeber this??

Brooklyn Township is in Schuyler County, not Brooklyn. I have hunted all over that area for over 30 years & hadn't heard about this. There is a lot of open farm ground but a lot of the terrain is very rugged to say the least. If someone would dump a body in that area, I believe it would be a local person & the victim would have been missed & searched for. The county roads wind everywhere & you really need to know where you are driving. I believe this is really Brooklyn, Illinois in St. Clair County hence the street address. Brooklyn is down by St. Louis where it would make more sense for an unidentified body to be found. It is also close to Fairmont but I believe this is a body dump out of or through the St. Louis area. If it was Brooklyn Township, that would creep me out a bit. I hope this helps.

I don't live very far from Brooklyn in St.Clair County, and there is a St.Clair Ave. that runs right through/on the border of the Brooklyn in St.Clair County. Right away I assumed they were actually referring to St.Clair County, not Schuyler County, because of St.Clair Ave. and the fact that the number to call with information is a 618 area code which covers southern IL. If I'm not mistaken, Schuyler County has a different area code. Tomorrow I'm going to call the number listed on the DoeNetwork page to have them clarify which county is the correct one, and to inquire about weather or not Cynthia was ever compared to this UID.

Hi Sable,

You are correct on the area code. I missed that. I'm sure it's St. Clair County. It would be pretty big news if it was in Schuyler County. I thought about it though & because of the terrain, you could hide a body pretty easy in Schuyler & it wouldn't be found. I creeped myself out on that point.

The colostomy bag just stuck out in my head.
I also found this bit interesting:
. . . The police were unable to locate the husband for three days. He then led them to where the truck was. At that time a massive search and rescue mission took place, involving police, dogs and professional search and rescue teams. They searched the entire area and found only an unused colostomy bag and a set of clothing that were Rhonda's. A pair of eyeglasses were also found. These items were found hear the truck. Her family said they belonged to Rhonda but the police say they were not Rhonda's. IF the police were correct and they were not hers, WHO'S were they? . . .

Do we already have a cold case thread on that case? Guess I need to look and see.

Sable

I know we have a thread on that case... just not sure under which forum.

ETA- The UID could be from St.Louis, but it's also likely that the UID was from East St.Louis. Just to give you guys an idea of what the area is like, It's so bad that my boyfriend won't even drive through there in the middle of the day. We drove over to St.Louis earlier today, and took the "long way" to get where we were going, even though it would have been quicker to drive through East St.Louis.

Any idea the distance between where the remains were found and the location in Canada that Rhonda disappeared from? Seems too coincidental not to look into it. Has anyone here reported the two posibilities to authorities?

ETA: Sable, where did you get that story on the remains? Is there any LE agency reported as investigating?

I confess that I tried lookig it up on mapquest, but I am completely ignorant on that part of the country. It kept pulling up other Brookyn's, not Il, and counldn't find directions to Alberta either. I am very curious to see how far that is too.

If the body was in fact found in St.Clair County, it's about 2,587 miles from where Rhonda disappeared.

The UID is believed to have hispanic traits and Rhonda is considered native... I know they are not the same kind of ethnicity, but heck, when skeletal remains have been found, they have been wrong before with the correct ethnicity.

Also, you don't see too many young women with a colostomy bag...

I found a website for Rhonda http://www.geocities.com/missingrhondarunningbird/

I called the PD that has the Doe, since i didn't want to call Canada about the possibility of this woman being Rhonda.
I have to call back on Monday, it was Friday when I called and most everyone was already out of the office, and it was either leave a message or call back. Since I sound like a five year old and an idiot on voice mail, I decided to call back. But I'll start in on it again on Monday and see who I can get ahold of. I should at least be able to find out if these 2 have been compared in the past.

You know, except for here, of course, and the DoeNetwork, there is almost nothing on JD. She isn't on the IL state police website, or in Namus, and the newspaper articles are too old to find with out paying.
I can see how some of these cases go unsolved, if no one knows, no one can help.

:(And you have to wonder if the person has ever been reported missing... and gosh, just look at Bambi Lynn Dick, she was reported missing, but for whatever reasons, the police cancelled it.
After rereading your post, I thought I had found some newspaper articles while I was researching this. I wanted to see exactly where she was found- I know I found some- I'll check.

Snuf,

I hope you turn it in!

I did email the detective in her MP case. He called me today and said this is one he's going to follow up on.

Apparently, Lourdes was a drug mule. She was supposed to pick up a large shipment of drugs and had a surveillance team following her the night she disappeared. Something spooked her and she did not get into the vehicle with the drugs.
The surveillance team stayed with the drugs and didn't follow Lourdes. She hasn't been seen since. There is a possibility she isn't dead, although clearly she is at high risk for foul play.
At the very least however, whenever I have contact with LE that doesn't have their missing and unidentified in NamUs, I suggest it. I leave the links in an email so they can look around and check it out. In this case, the detective was unaware of NamUs, and has alerted his supervisor that it might be a good thing for them to use. I hope they choose to put their info into it, but at least now they're aware of another tool to help resolve cold MP/UID cases.
Her detective seems like a good guy who wants to solve his cold cases. He said he's going to follow up on the Brooklyn bones, and he does have Lourdes dentals, so I feel really good that we will have a rule out standing in the next couple of months and I feel really good that they are now aware of NamUs too.

Appreciating All.

Could this have been used to secret drugs on the body of a mule? It's watertight and designed to be attached to a person's body/body cavity.

It would make a great deal of sense for this doe to be Lourdes.

Snufamonbobball, you are awesome.

That is an interesting idea. I like that you think about everything. I will say after finding out about how deep she was involved with the drug trade, I was more encourged that it could be Lourdes.
Where the decedant was found was close to a major highway interchange, and would be a likely route for someone heading south from Aurora, but only time will tell. I had said to NMK that if by some strange twist of fate this turned out to be Lourdes, whomever did the reconstruction is really talented! The moment I saw Lourdes picture, I thought of this Doe.

After a quick search I found this news story about a man who hid drugs in a colostomy bag. Good thinking Cymro.http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06358/748764-53.stm

This probably isn't her. The height is off, and the timeline is inconsistent with the postmortem interval.

but the resemblance is amazing!!!

http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/images/533UFIL.jpghttp://www.charleyproject.org/images/m/milton_sherry4.jpg

It looks like the artist was looking at Sherry when he did the drawing!!

Again, there are a lot of inconsistencies, but considering that there is a $10K reward out for info leading to the arrest and conviction of the perp involved in SAM's disappearance, I am calling this one in anyway. I'd hate to see it turn out to be her, and miss out on a chance at the $10K reward.

I know that the reward is for the arrest & conviction of the perp, not the recovery of her remains, but sometimes the recovery leads to the perp.

If she has been ruled-out, then I can put her name here, and others won't be tempted to call this one in (as I was).

I just spoke with Det. Bristoe of Birmingham PD. I made it clear to him that I thought it was a long-shot, but because of the amazing resemblance, it might be worth a look. He took down the info and said that he wasn't sure what they had on Sherry Milton (e.g., Dentals, DNA), but he would look into it.

I don't live very far from Brooklyn in St.Clair County, and there is a St.Clair Ave. that runs right through/on the border of the Brooklyn in St.Clair County. Right away I assumed they were actually referring to St.Clair County, not Schuyler County, because of St.Clair Ave. and the fact that the number to call with information is a 618 area code which covers southern IL. If I'm not mistaken, Schuyler County has a different area code. Tomorrow I'm going to call the number listed on the DoeNetwork page to have them clarify which county is the correct one, and to inquire about weather or not Cynthia was ever compared to this UID.


You are correct. Southern Illinois parts of which are right across from St.Louis would have a 618 area code. Schuyler county is more Central Illinois (graduated from Western Illinois University) and lived in Springfield Il at one time, they have a completely different area code/codes (217 and can't remember the other one sorry, 309 maybe?).

A colostomy (sp?) bag? Ok that right there would be a huge indicator. What causes someone to use that bag? I wonder if the UID, if listed as a missing person, doesn't have info on the bag published but does have info on the sickness.


Lieber - OT but went to the same school :)


And yes, 309 is the area code of the town of WIU if I remember correctly.

You are correct. Southern Illinois parts of which are right across from St.Louis would have a 618 area code. Schuyler county is more Central Illinois (graduated from Western Illinois University) and lived in Springfield Il at one time, they have a completely different area code/codes (217 and can't remember the other one sorry, 309 maybe?).

You're correct lieber!
The telephone number for the primary area of Schuyler Co. is 217.
The upper most section of the county, if you follow a county map, is listed in the 309 area code. This runs, I believe, from the Brooklyn Twp/Plymouth area all the way to the northern and eastern sections of the county where it meets with the Fulton County line.

Stuff like this is beyond huge news in Schuyler Co. and is talked about for many years to follow.. I've lived here (Schuyler Co. Area) since 2006 and with family working both in law enforcement and at the hospital, I surely would've heard about something this big.

Thanks Cyan I was beginning to question my own knowledge. I lived in Springfield, IL the year this occured and feel I would have heard something. Being from Central Illinois and traveling through Schuyler County many times in my lifetime remember it being a farming community identical to the one I grew up in. News such as this is really big, I forget that residing in St.Louis were we have a few of these type of cases or more every week how big something like this is to a small close knit community with very low crime rate.
