We have had a few possible matches, rule outs, and I'm sure there will be more. We should post here anyone that we have discussed, ruled out, or still needs work. We can branch out if we find one that needs more work and their own thread....yes?

The girl was found in 1979. The estimated age could be right.

If you clink on the link http://www.western-project.com/svenson/sve_img.html it will bring up this picture. I can see some likeness with Rose.

You are right Christine, Svenson's work is amazing. He brings the UID'd back to life. I wonder if he would be interested in assisting us in our little venture? Hmmm, can't hurt to ask huh?

I got this tip from a fellow MySpacer, For The Missing (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=126340516)

For the Missing's Blog is HERE (http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.ListAll&friendID=126340516)

Could This Be Rose?? I would like to investigate this more. Rose's DNA is in CODIS. We are trying to find out if this Doe's is. For The Missing is working with detectives to see if Rose and Pacheco Pass Doe are one in the same.

Detective attempts try to ID Jane Doe
Trucker admitted strangling 'Jane Doe'
By Mark Gomez, MEDIANEWS STAFF
Article Launched: 06/28/2007 03:32:44 AM PDT


Detective Ronald Breuss keeps the sketch above his desk, an artist's rendering of a woman whose identity has remained a mystery for 14 years. Most likely a truck stop prostitute, her lifeless body was found in 1993 near Pacheco Pass on Highway 152, dumped there by convicted serial murderer Keith Hunter Jesperson.
Breuss, a cold case homicide investigator for the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office, likes to think the woman had a family, that someone once loved her and wonders what happened to her. So this summer Breuss will pack his car with copies of the sketch and hit the road. He will spend his own time and money in one last effort to put a name to the face.

If he strikes out, Breuss will close the case and put her file in an archive where "realistically no one will ever look at her again."

That's why her name matters so much to Breuss.

"She was a human being. She had a history ... and nobody could care less about that woman," said Breuss, a 26-year veteran in the sheriff's office.

He plans to drive I-5 posting her sketch with a plea for information along the way. "I care. She's entitled to somebody standing up for her. And in a lot of cases, the cold case officer is the last guy to stand up for somebody."

Even if that person was perhaps a down-on-her-luck prostitute, estranged from her family and addicted to drugs or alcohol. She wasn't from around here, just dumped in a remote part of the county. Breuss has theorized all of those scenarios.

You know....wow, interesting observation..how about a thread? LOL. We could help or oust. It would be interesting to go into 'one' with Delia Cly on the mind, it certianly makes you think about all 4 sides of the square after witnessesing something like that. I wasn't involved, I was just hurt for my friends who were, spent so much time, and it was all a hoax! Anywho, how's bout it Rhett? Wanna?

Let me throw out another possibility here...I am doing a search for a woman who has never been listed as missing (many complications on it). However, I am wondering here, does anyone know if Jesperson gave this Doe the 39 yr old age? Or is it the detectives? In 1993, my missing person would have been 47, and looked much younger...I need some more info on this doe, she fits the location and actions of my missing...just need age approximation...unless of course, she turns out to be Rose...

Ohhhh, the endless possibilities with Jane Does! ;-)

Speaking of Delia Cly, I got an email from her recently. It was a chain letter but I couldn't believe that scam artist still had anyone from WS in her address book.

I don't remember this UID ever being discussed. The first link is the Doe network drawings of her, and the 2nd link is the LV coroners morgue UID picture. Since we never really know how tall Rose grew, (and without proper nutrition is probably not as tall as she might have grown with a stable healthy diet)and eye color is hard to distinguish between brown/green/hazel after death, you never know.

No Rose didn't have dentures when she left, (but then again not many 17-21 year olds do either). Little or no money, and living on the streets can change a lot of physical aspect's of a person. I could see how Roses dental health could have declined quickly. I can see all sorts of plausible explanations such as a free clinic, or a Dentist "Client". Also there are tons of periodontal diseases. I wonder if gum disease ran in her family.

You know, after really studying the doe network sketches, and looking at the actual morgue picture, it's no wonder this girl has never been identified. The pictures look nothing like the victim. Even the ears which are clearly visible in the morgue pic are completely different than in the sketches.

After rotating and enlarging the morgue pic and putting it side by side with all of Roses pictures, I keep thinking I'm seeing similar mole and freckle patterns. If you look at a close up of the side view of Rose with her Brothers and the morgue picture, there is a skin bump in the exact same location. (among other stuff I think I'm seeing) I'll write to the LV NV coroners office tonight and have them take a look. I'll let you all know if i hear anything.

This is scary for me to say, but I am almost 95.999% positive that the above UID is Rose, (I'd bet the farm, but I really live on a farm, and I'd hate to lose it ) I wrote the NV coroners office last night, and spent several hours today enhancing, cropping and filtering the UID pic and Rose's side view pic. (The one with her brothers and showing the same side of her face as the LVNV UID.) I hope I'm wrong, because this UID was brutally murdered, I'd hate to think of Rose ending up like this.

I remember reading about a ring that Rose wore, any family remember what it looked like?

No problem Lisa, and thanks. I've checked my e-mail 20 times in the last few days to see if the cold case coroners office would write back. I assume they are heavily back logged, and if they did think the 2 where a match, they would contact the family and not me. Hopefully if the family hears anything they will post asap.

This Doe has brown eyes, Rose had Green, olive eyes. But, it could be a misprint/mistake, I have see that a thousand times!

I wonder if this NV Doe has DNA in CODIS, if so, it should have hit when Rose's was entered. Jesse’s DNA sample was profiled and added to CODIS 10/06. The way the CODIS database works, we will only be contacted by the DNA laboratory if there is a potential match to Rose found in the system.
Each time a new DNA profile is added to the database, the computer will automatically compare it to Jesse’s profile, so the search for Rose in the DNA database will never end unless she is found.

I know what you mean about the eyes. Remember "DOA cop", aka Mr. Harris who posted here for a while? I think he was the one who originally helped Isabella with getting Rose listed, anyway here is a quote from him on eye color on 4-6-06

doa cop said:

Eye color is difficult - as there are factors that can effect what you see at a post-mortem examination; decomposition, excessive heat, fire, dependant lividity can really make it difficult as well because the eye becomes so conjested and tardeau spots start to appear.




My eyes are very hazel, way more green than brown, and are listed as brown on my drivers licence. Looking at Roses pictures I would see how someone would call them brown as for a lack of a better description, especially post mortem.

I don't know if LV NV Jane Doe has DNA...did they even take samples in 1979? They do have finger prints, but dentals are out. First off Roses have been mixed up/and or lost and LV Jane Doe had dentures.

If Rose was put in the court system, her finger prints are probably somewhere, but since she was a minor when she was originally processed I would suspect they where never entered into any national data base for criminals. This will be a tricky one to rule out if no DNA was taken from the UID. Usually they tell you if DNA is avalible, but this one didn't on either of the web sites.

08-08-2007, 03:55 PM
I stand to be corrected...the Doe Network said DNA WAS available. I wonder how we can tell if it was entered into CODIS? Who do we ask?

FINALLY, I talked with a man at the coroners office after a lady at the police dept transferred me to a real person. He will call back TODAY with info on the LV UID to let me know if she has been entered. From what he says, I get the impression she has not been.

No problem. The detective had asked specific questions I could not answer. The UID must have a few old skin markers that are not listed for identification purposes. If Rose had a scar, or a mole, birthmark etc. somewhere, they could rule her in or out without going through the entire process, from what I understand. The ring that was mentioned by Brenda at one point could also help, if anyone knew what it looked like.

THe teeth are also a factor, if Rose's family has a history of periodontal disease, that could answer maybe the denture factor. Also, I was thinking about Rose's letter where she said a trucker messed her up when she was hitching a ride. She could have had some knocked out over the years and then found a clinic that helped her to get dentures. I don't know. Just thinking out loud.

A detective is going to run the LV UID fingerprints with prints of those of CA Juvenile prints. If Rose got picked up for any crime in CA and printed when she was still a minor, they should still be in separate CA juvy files. (Of course she would have probably given a fake name, but there could possibly be a picture.) He said the UID prints have been run through local and FBI criminal files with no match. His next step if no match will be to contact Flint, MI LE to see if her prints where taken when she was sentenced to the Synanon.

Hi All,

I submitted a possible match for Rose to the Flint MI PD. I haven't heard anything from LE, but a reporter contacted me about it. (I wonder how the reporter found out I contacted the police).

I left a VM and replied to his email. I will post here when I speaka to him. If anyone can get in touch with Yannette, please have her contact me ASAP!!

Here is the email I received today:

Oh how cool! I hope they contact you ASAP, the family must be really busy, or have given up hope, a local story could really lift their spirits as well as stir up some memories for some Flint old timers. Hopefully it all works out. As far as the News guy, that's weird...did you give LE your address & phone number?, maybe your UID turned out to be Rose, and there was a leak to the media...:silenced: I sent a generic e-mail (no personal info)to the VA LE for a possible match for a different spot light case on Wednesday, and imagine my surprise when the FBI called me on Friday regarding the VA Doe...they knew more about me than I do...LOL (Big Brother is watching you ...LOL)

Anyway, the tough thing about these older cases is unless the family stays involved and is willing to urge LE to exhume a body and retrieve DNA, they'll never get solved. Even if they turn out to not be matches, at least the DNA will get put into CODIS and possibly be solved for another family.

What UID did you submit? It would be nice if we could start a sticky no discussion thread dedicated to confirmed rule outs only. (are there any?)Anyway...good luck, keep us informed as you can.

I just realized I posted this by accident to the wrong forum. Sorry for the repeat.

Off Topic: Most of you probably already know this but I found it interesting. This is just FYI, for anyone who would like to know how old UIDs actually end up in CODIS. This cold case detective was very helpful and a really nice guy. I'll paraphrase his comments, as I was taking notes as quickly as I could.

Quote:

"We have hundreds of UIDs in our system from the 60's, 70's and the early 80's that have not been entered into the CODIS network, simply because DNA didn't exist to us in that time frame. If the Doe Network or other UID web sites says DNA is available, it usually means that the body was buried and not cremated, in which it can be exhumed to harvest DNA. With time constraints and budget issues we only exhume a body after a preliminary investigation with the family of a missing person and we (LE & family) feels it warranted."


He went on to say that after the a body is exhumed, and if it's not a match with the intended missing, then the DNA goes into CODIS, and they try to get various sites updated relaying the information.

I spoke with the reporter this evening. A while back I contacted the Michigan State Police and asked that Rose be added to their missing persons database. I initially spoke with Lt. Stephen Sipes who referred me to Sgt Greg Hosmer.

Sgt Hosmer contacted the reporter, Ken Palmer, and told him he heard from me about a case that he thought might make a good story.

Since I didn't find Rose, I gave him HoT's hat and the link to WS and some other links with info about Rose.

He went to the Genesee County court to confirm that Rose was sent to Synanon by the court. He was in disbelief that the courts would send a juvenile cross country to attend a treatment program. Of course he was told there are no records for the case.

I hope Yannette reads this or someone is able to get in contact with her. We finally have some media attention. We can't afford to let it slip away. I gave him the link to the letters. Those will definitely touch his heart.

He is going to read about the case and contact me when he is ready to print an article. If anyone has any info they think he should have that has not already been posted, please PM or email me so I can forward it to him

I'm still waiting from a call back from the LV detective. He said he'd get back with me the end of this week and so far nothing. I have also sent a couple letters to the Baltimore MD LE for the following Jane Doe.

http://doenetwork.org/cases/279ufmd.html

She looks close enough, hair color same...postmortem eye color "brown". Tall & same age group. She was found in 1976 in Maryland and she has a tattoo of the initials J. P. on her arm. (Maybe for Jesse/Pose?)

Both UID's I've been checking out have had extensive dental work. While it appears that Rose did not have any dental work done when she left in 1972, these girls where not found until 1976 & 79. As far as Rose's dental records, this is all we really know for sure:

Posted by Isabela PR on 11-19-06 # 138

She visited the Moss Dental Clinic in Flint MI. I obtained dental records to be compared with Jane Doe in CA. These were not a match. However, her stepmother (Opal) and step sisters (Brenda & Norma) are certain that the dental records were switch at one point. They think the records I obtained are Norma’s since Rose had no dental work done. The dental work show in the records matches Norma’s dental work.



Do you by chance know when the last time she had x-rays and an exam? I'm thinking she might not have been to the dentist for several years before she was sent away. My niece (14yr) goes to the dentist every 6 months. She has never had a cavity until her last visit and she had 4. IMHO until Roses dental Charts can be located and positively identified to be hers, Dental records are not a reliable method to ID Rose.

It is also my understanding that there was a medical and dental ward at the synanon. She could have been extensively treated there upon her arrival. I was just reading a study the other day about long term residents of the synanon having less cavities than the general public because refined sugar was not allowed. (from 1978 up) It appears that good oral hygiene was important there at least for awhile.

I emailed Isbella a couple of times and no response. I think her computer may be down again.

I recently reformatted my desktop and backed everything up to disk, that is where her phone # is, I will have to try and find the time to go through the cds this weekend and find her #..I think Shadow may have it too...I'll call her before I go crazy looking.

It sure could be Rose. Problem is if no DNA is available chances are she was cremated, so we might never know. I'm so fed up with LE and all these Jane Does. I just want to cry or scream...or both. They put them out there to see, read about and to sleuth, but Lord forbid you call them and suggest a match. Then you get the same old song and dance about how back logged they are. They never follow up, they don't return your calls, they treat you like you're a suspect.... It's just a wasted cause. Unless it's a little podunk one horse town, with one UID a century, they simply don't give a rats hind end.:boohoo:

First off, I wrote to this lady today, but have not received a reply yet. I've Googled Rose Cole a hundred times and never remember seeing this site. According to the 3rd link, (a poem this Rose wrote when she was 15), she is 2 years younger than "Our Rose" . But the poem depicts what Our Rose may have been going through at that time. The last link is a paper she wrote when she was 13, and also quite interesting.

Her picture in the first link resembles the age enhanced pic of Rose, except the eyes don't quit look the same. According to this site, she never finished high school, but did later get her GED and is now attending college. She lives in Canada. From what I can gather, she is not married, but has a male partner. She has a set of twins, (Girl/Boy). The girl has an uncanny resemblance to Rose, IMO. I ask that not every one contacts her, as I have already. I don't want to scare her off, but I do value others oppenion. Let me know what you think.

Poor Rose, I feel bad we all abandoned her. When her family quit posting, I think many people just gave up. I think of Rose a lot, and think her and Pose have reunited and started a new life without all the baggage.

I have this happy little daydream that Pose and Rose live in the same neighborhood and have each others families over for backyard BBQ's every weekend. They drink a few beers, the kids and the grand kids stop by to visit and play, and they eat Ribs and chicken and play cards til late...and thank the Lord they found peace...

I don't think we 'abandoned' her....just so much going on, so many cases. Hard to work on this when the family was so involved then stopped helping...IMO, because #1 we led them to something, #2 unhappy about things we may have discovered, #3, real life for them and for us 'hotter' cases sadly have grabbed our attention lately.

I'd been looking for info about Synanon because just a few weeks ago, I stayed at a beach front hotel that had once been home to Synanon in Santa Monica (Casa Del Mar). How odd to see it connect here as well.

RE Rose: In June-July in 1973, my friend and I went to San Francisco and then on to Mill Valley where my aunt and uncle lived on Mt. Tam. One night, in late June or very early July, the SFO news showed a body of a young woman as sort of a last resort on finding her family. They found no id and they said that even though she was old enough to drive, no thumb print for her. At that point, she was a Jane Doe and this was their last ditch effort to find someone who knew her before they burried her. I recalled that she had been murdered possibly two week before they showed her body. I've often wondered if they ever found out who she was. The horror of seeing someone who was probably just a few years older than I was at the time really stayed with me. I wondered how such a young woman would have no one looking for her. Sadly, she did fit some of the descriptions of Rose that I've read here.

I've look on the net and old news reports also. There was was body, one of three young woman killed around that time, in the last reports I read. She was found on a school play ground. I don't think this was the same person I'm thinking of because all three of these young women were possible Filipino or other Asian girls.
I'm 100% sure that the girl I saw on TV was not Asian. From what I remember, the girl had been seen hitchhiking a few days before.
I was in the Bay Area from June 20 to July 6th, 1973.

Has Rose been compared to 1977 Snohomish County Jane Doe? This young woman was killed in 1977 by being strangled and shot in the head several times. She was between 15-21 years old at her time of the death. Here is the link: http://snohomishcountyjanedoe.homestead.com/ Sadly they caught the guy who killed her, but he didn't even know her first name.

Look at the way her right eye slants. I noticed in Rose's yearbook photo that her eye also slants like that, in a way her left eye doesn't. The distance between her nose and upper lip is also similar. I don't know how put both pictures against each other for direct comparison.

How tall was Rose? Doe has her listed as between 5'3 and 5'6- which is a pretty big range! Jane Doe is listed at 5'10, but she was in a fairly advanced state of decomp. Her website also makes it sound as if the investigations done on her body weren't handled particularly well. She also had had some dental work, but Rose would have been on her for over five years. Who knows if she'd had to get two teeth repaired.

ETA- Never mind, she was ruled out on another thread.

# Unidentified White Female Located on August 21, 1973 in Altamonte Springs, Seminole County, Florida.
# Cause of death was homicide

Vital Statistics

* Estimated age: 15- 21 years old
* Approximate Height and Weight: 5'5"- 5'7"; slender build (circa 110 lbs).
* Distinguishing Characteristics: Approximately shoulder-length, light brown hair. Possibly crooked teeth. She appears to be a young runaway.
* Dentals: Loose teeth found during screenings of surrounding soil
* Clothing: None located
* AKA: Authorities refer to her as "Ginger"

Case History
This unidentified female is believed to have been a victim of Joseph "Crazy Joe" Spaziano, a member of the Outlaws motorcycle gang in 1973. The victim was located in a dump in Altamonte Springs, Florida on August 21, 1973. She was underneath the body of Laura Harbers, a homicide which Spaziano was charged with in the mid-1970's.
Spaziano avoided the death penalty in Harberts' case, as a key witness for the prosecution recanted his testimony which would have implicated Spaziano in the crime. His first-degree murder conviction was overturned in 1998 and Spaziano pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of second-degree murder. He is currently serving a life sentence in a Florida prison for the rape and mutilation of a teenage girl from Orlando, Florida.
A witness said that in the spring of 1973, she saw Spaziano at Daytona Beach with a young girl riding on the back of his motorcycle. The girl asked her to hold her purse for safekeeping. The girl didn't pick up her purse after the motorcycle ride. Five days later Spaziano showed up at her door and demanded the purse. She turned it over, but not before peeking inside for the identification. She told Police that she remembered only that the girl was from Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Oh, it is so sad to see this forum go so cold. I read about Rose on the Anna forum. This is such a sad story. Like others who have said the same, it seems to me there was a lot more going on at home than has been revealed. There is such a haunted look in her eyes in the last photo. I would not be surprised if Rose's father knew what happened to her. His words were just so final about her.

If the family was still involved, I would suggest following up on the Flint LE's suggestion about suing the courts there (which actually occurred to me before I read that they'd suggested it). They are ultimately responsible for what happened to her. I think this would probably drive quite a bit of publicity to the case, and possibly if person's involved in the case are still alive, open up avenues to interviewing them.

I have been reading about Rose for hours. I would love to believe she made a life for herself & someday, she's going to Google her name & see how many people have spent literally thousands of hours looking for her.

I checked one of my favorite websites for Pose & Rose - I won't give the url since I'm new here & don't want to take a chance on breaking TOS - but it is a famous one where you can see if a state is holding property or money for you that you may have forgotten or not known of. Bad news - neither one is listed. Better news - not every state is included so when I am not so tired i will check those remaining states. Just a random thought but you never know where something will turn up.

I too, wish she could be found, as I have been following this case for awhile now. With the sudden withdrawal of the families participation on this site, I tend to believe that they have solved the mystery in one way or another.
Maybe it was something bad that the family did not want to get out, something to do with the father perhaps. From what I remember reading, he wasn't always a pleasant person.

Or on the brighter side.... Maybe they found her and she didn't want to be found and just wanted her privacy. Hopefully she is safe and happy.

I do certainly hope it is the latter of the two scenarios.

New to this case, and I apologize in advance if someone has posted this already. I see a resemblance to the woman in Texas who committed suicide in 2010, going by the name Lori Kennedy. It was discovered after her death that she used a fake name and social. Here is her pic, taken in 1990:https://identifyus.org/en/medias/show/12748

I don't think FLEK could be Rose. FLEK obtained a false ID in 1989 saying she was 19. While it was speculated that she may actually have been older, Rose would have been 32 and that seems a bit of a stretch. Also FLEK was very tall and it there have been a lot of remarks about her unusually long fingers and hands.

shadowdancer
07-10-2013, 12:50 AM
I don't think the age is a stretch at all, in fact I think in her photos Lori looks every bit the age that Rose would have been.

I agree on the height/size of hands and feet, however we don't have any real proof that Rose wouldn't have had these features. Not only that, she was last seen by her family at an age where her body was still developing.

Rose may or may not be Lori, but given that their faces look like identical twins and the fact that Rose's circumstances would lend themselves very well indeed to Lori's, I think its just too close to call and the only way a proper rule-out can be made is via DNA.

I just went over to the FLEK thread (they just started a new one) and they started by re-summarizing everything including all the "possibles". Rose is not even listed. You might want to try again to get her added, and then of course get her submitted to have her ruled out. I know they have DNA for FLEK including mito DNA. I can't remember the status now. Did they every get mito DNA submitted by Rose's brother?

I'm not sure what to hope for really. It would be wonderful to have the answers both to Lori's identity and what happened to Rose, but it would be sad if it was Rose too, since it would mean that she is gone. I suppose a match would provide answers for Rose's family, but also a whole load more questions. Questions they would probably never get answers to.

I will cross my fingers and pray that we find Rose and that we also find out Lori's identity. If Lori and Rose turn out to be one and the same, then what will be, will be...

How long do these things tend to take?

It could be anywhere from 6 months to a year or more. The waiting is the hardest.

What I like about this picture is the different angle of her nose and face, fwiw.

Is she wearing clear braces in this photo? Looks like it...IMO

I really like this match a lot. The height is throwing me for sure, but I really really like it.

Great job on all the work being done here.


What is the height discrepancy? I noticed her height on the Idaho ID is 5' 6" but on her Texas license it is 5' 10.

LEK has a number of ID with a variety of heights on them. Based on her standing in group. Photos, I think the IDs that ad her at 5'19" or 5'11" is probably accurate.

There is a really good forum put together on Lori Kennedy. I has lots of stickies giving ER timeline, photos etc so it is easy to find without having to read the millions of posts about her.

So, Rose was sent to a cult, basically. A violent cult, too. I personally don't think she made it out of California so I'm going to compile a list of UIDs from California. I am including those who were a victim of homicide and those who had committed suicide, because thinking that a cult is after you 24/7 can wear you down psychologically.


Partial skull found in 1993, was there for 1-20 years


Hit by a car, possible suicide? 5'8


Little too old. 5'8


Committed suicide, 5'2, the sketch looks like an OLD woman, but the age range is 20-30, in 1977 Rose would have been 20


Estimated at 5'9. She was buried in the fetal position, which sounds (And excuse my hokey language) like a hit


Doesn't say the DNA's in CODIS If she had been killed immediately after last writing to her parents


A little short, jumped to her death in 1975.


5'5 and possibly there for decades



There's so many more. But I'm exhausted. I'm sorry I can't list them all, I'm going to bed.

I've omitted the address and telephone information for privacy reasons. However, should anyone choose to make contact, I ask that they please be respectful of her boundaries, her family's boundaries, or of those of the home's present occupants.

Rose Lena Cole's mother Willie May Puckett (herself a Louisiana native) died in Beaumont, TX in 1999. Rosie Sherman also lived in Beaumont, TX around the same time.

SOURCE: http://genforum.genealogy.com/puckett/messages/3512.html

Rose Lena Cole's birthday was also on Dec. 23, 1956. What are the odds there would be two women named Rose Cole born on the exact same date in the exact same year? Sure, it's possible, but...

SOURCE: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/c/cole_rose.html

Perhaps after running away from Synanon, Rose spent the next few years among various members of the "Underground Railroad" or some church group. Perhaps she contacted her birth father at some point, who no longer wanted anything to do with her. And with her step-mother and step-siblings moved away, she contacted her birth mother in Texas next. There, she married, raised a family and lived her own life. In fact, it's entirely possible that Rose may not even be aware that she's regarded as a missing person in Michigan and California. Why would she be now that she is a wife and mother with a new married name?

Then again, should Rosie Sherman not be the same person as Rose Lena Cole, I must admit that the coincidences are profoundly striking!

Wow, that's an interesting find! The same birthdate and everything. I wouldn't blame Rose if she became an adult, married and went on with her life, without ever contacting her family again. It seems like her dad had written her off anyway, so she probably thought why bother. This could be her.

Not sure about this one. With the people finders, they sometimes make associations that are incorrect. But there is Quentroy Dwayne Cole from Beaumont, TX who is on the sex offender list for having sex with a minor. There is a mug shot, and he is Black.

He is listed as being a relative of Rosie Sherman. These things get complicated. He could be her son, but she wasn't married to gather so he is named Cole and then Rosie Married someone named Sherman?

This QDT was born in 1975. Where would our Rose have been in 75? That actually fits. She was at Syanon in 72-73. Maybe she did leave and met a guy and lived with him and had a child?

Pretty sure I found her in FB, same Beaumont Tx, same Louisiana and C Cole as a friend. They are all black folks.... Could be just a coincidence. There is no profile pic of Rosie.

It's quite a remarkable coincidence to have the same name, same birthdate, same birthyear and so many places in common. If this isn't our Rose, then the search goes on I guess. Oh well.

If only Rose left us some kind of vital clue in one of her letters home that might help us determine where exactly she went. Does anyone still have copies available?

In the meantime, is it possible that Rose was referring to the Chinatown in Oakland and not San Francisco? They have one too. If so, perhaps we've been looking in the wrong place. On a related note, why would she go to any city's Chinatown in the first place? For someone trying NOT to be found, she would be awfully conspicuous in a place like that. Maybe someone living in Chinatown back then remembers seeing her?

And I wonder if a member of her immediate family might be able to petition the court to get Rose's case records unsealed? Was she actually present in that Michigan courtroom in early 1974 when the charges against her were dismissed? If so, why does nobody seem to know for sure? Wouldn't they have to sign in somewhere first at least?

I also wonder if any members of Synanon's inner circle might still be alive? Is it possible that they still remember Rose? Could there still be some internal records somewhere that might shed some light on things?

Another possibility are the Zebra Murders of 1973. Were there any unidentified remains from those killings that might match Rose's description?

Okay, here's a thought. It's beginnng to sound like the person on People Finders may not be Rose, if the whole family is black, but suppose she married a black man? This was the 70s, and as a child from a southern state in the 70s, I remember how lots of people felt back then about mixed marriages. I personally don't have those feelings and I want to be clear about that, but many people back then did, and probably still do. That might explain why she never contacted her family. If her dad or any of the family had racist feelings then she knew she would be even more disowned for marrying a black man.

Definitely a possibility but from the information her SIL provided, I think Rose stop contacting her family because of how her Father treated her when she called last. He told her that if she had been out there that long she could stay out there. Or she is no longer with us.

I'm hopeful that she is happily living her life some place and doesn't want to be found.

No, I don't think the Rosie on FB is white or Rose Cole.
It's hard to imagine where on earth or what on earth happens to these missing people, I understand we're all trying our best to find them and with time, hopefully we will.

I do NOT claim to know where Rose might be today. Even so, could one of these women be our match?

Rose L. Cole of Detroit, Michigan
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/29LG-Q7V

Rose Cole of Oakland, California
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/2S24-M9K

Rose Cole of Wyoming, Michigan
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/274P-ZBL

And of course, as I previously mentioned, there is Rose Cole (aka Rosie Bee Sherman) of Bunkie, Louisiana, whose birthday is also Dec 23, 1956
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/KPVP-P4H

Naturally, it is entirely possible that if Rose is still with us she might be going by a married/assumed name at this point. Only Rose herself could say for certain!

On a related note, there is an alleged psychic (and self-professed schizophrenic) out there named Brian Ladd who recently released a new YouTube video about Rose Lena Cole (Feb 21, 2014) alongside fellow alleged psychic, Gale St. John. The two speak with a guest named Susan and ultimately describe what they initially believe to be a (male?) murder victim buried somewhere in the vicinity of Arlington, Oregon. (Did Synanon or whoever even operate in Oregon?) For whatever reason unbeknownst to me, they borrow Rose's name for the video clip title.

I want to state for the record that I'm very skeptical about this video, which seems a little dubious and disorganized to me. Still, I'm including it here in case they're onto something I don't yet see:
