Indications are she has only been deceased a few days. This is a VERY remote area, and she was fairly close to the roadway.

Pants and shoes are described, but not any upper body clothing or outerwear (it's been cold here the last few days).

This is not that far from the border with Illinois (45 minutes or so)

I can only find three - all of whom are from Indiana, but none of whom seem likely.

Holly Elischer

(if this UID was Holly, they probably would have noted her excessive weight)

The UID has only been dead for a few days, so it is unlikely that she would be on any public MP listing yet.

Holly keeps coming to mind. You are correct they didn't note the weight but honestly they gave so few details that I can not rule her out. Very sad but hopefully a family will get closure and are able to bring their loved one "home".

So few details...so many unanswered questions!:banghead:

<modsnip>

Speaking of their weights, I notice that the weight on Danyel Pauley NAMUS profile is 110 lbs. I think her face looks at least 50 lbs heavier.

I agree that if she was just found and was only there for a few days that she may not have a DoeNetwork right now.

The Cornrows are very interesting though, you almost never see cornrows on someone who is Caucasian. If that's how she normally had her hair then she will probably get identified pretty quickly.

The updated article now says 'several weeks' and 'quite decomposed'. Sadly.

Which updated article? I read the article again and it says the same "Detectives estimated that the body had been there for no more than a few days."

It says 'dreadlocks' for Kourtne. They're different than cornrows - or maybe LE doesn't know the difference????

Honestly, in total seriousness, they probably don't. I doubt I could tell you the difference LOL. ;)

Dreads are twisted lengths of hair - cornrows are braids that hug the scalp.

That's me - repository of trivia but cannot remember my kids' names sometimes. :)

I have only seen cornrows on a Caucasian person when the person also has a close connection to the black community.

I guess you never saw Bo Derek in the 1979 movie "10".

Now they're saying 'braids' and that she was 'last seen wearing skate shoes'. I'm inclined to say sloppy reporting rather than they have a 'last seen' since she is described as decomposed and remains unidentified. A basic description is also in the article.

It sounds like they went around with a picture or description, and somebody at Walmart remembered selling her the shoes. Which wouldn't mean they know who she is, but she would have been seen before.

eta: I'm extrapolating what they might mean -- so take it as speculation, not a statement of fact.

I can't get the TV station links to work, but I found this article about the JD in case others are having trouble with the links.

http://tribstar.com/local/x691731658/Unidentified-woman-died-from-blunt-force-trauma-coroner-says

"Her age has been estimated at 20 to 40 years. Her height is in the range of 5-feet-3 to 5-feet-5 inches tall. She weighs 130 to 160 pounds, is Caucasian, and has brown corn-rowed braids that extend past her shoulders. When her body was found, the woman was wearing black pants and black shoes with white soles."

Investigators are still trying to identify a woman that a fisherman found dead Saturday evening.

I was hoping she'd be identified soon. Glad to see that they found out who did it too. Hopefully justice will be served quickly and completely too

A Jan. 12 trial date has been set in a 2012 homicide trial that was postponed at the last minute on Monday. Defendant Enzert Lewis, 40, appeared Tuesday in Vigo Superior Court...

Lewis was arrested Nov. 6, 2012, after police investigated information from a family member of the woman who heard about the discovered body and reported the victim missing. The body was identified as Allyson Elmi Lewis. The information filed in court alleges that Lewis killed his wife on Oct. 10, 2012.

A jury selected Monday in the trial of Enzert Lewis heard statements that physical evidence connecting Lewis to the death of Allyson Elmi Lewis will be slim during this week’s trial in Vigo Superior Court 3.

In his opening statement, Vigo County Prosecutor Terry Modesitt told the jury that there was no DNA evidence collected from the apartment where investigators believe that Allyson Lewis died on Oct. 10, 2012. Police found bleach had been used to clean areas of the woman’s apartment, and an empty bottle of bleach was found near where her body was discarded in eastern Vigo County. Bleach was also found in the car driven by Enzert Lewis...

Testimony will continue today, with witnesses expected to include police investigators and others who knew Allyson Lewis. The prosecution has a list of 34 witnesses to call during the trial.

The jury on Thursday heard that a second cadaver dog located the scent of human remains in both Allyson Lewis’ apartment on North 14th Street and in the Enzert Lewis’ bedroom in the basement of a home on Monterey Avenue...

Of the many things collected from the apartment — including bleach, cleanser, a mop, rags and a shower curtain — none would reveal blood evidence or DNA in later lab testing.

A torn-up Social Security card belonging to Allyson Elmi was found in a trash bag, Fitzgerald said, and an identification card from Indiana Work One was found in a trash can in another room.

A jury in the murder trial of Enzert Lewis heard Lewis’ cousin testify Friday that the defendant “kicked out” his wife’s teeth in October 2012.

Lewis’ cousin, Lincoln Shaw, also testified that Enzert Lewis was limping, had scraped knuckles and “didn’t look like himself” when the two men talked on the afternoon of Oct. 10, 2012, at Shaw’s home on Monterey Avenue in Terre Haute...

An autopsy determined that her upper jaw had been sheared from her skull by blunt force trauma to her face that resulted in her death. A dentist testified that 11 teeth were knocked out of Allyson Lewis’ mouth at the time of her death.
