    Myra is remembered

    Respectfully snipped "
    The namesake of Pepe's organization, Myra Manley, vanished Sept. 2, 1983, not long after a falling out with a boyfriend. Manley, who was 19, has not been seen or heard from since, according to the state's missing-persons website. "

    This is a friend of Myra's, coincidentally the place is in Jenna Lord's hometown. The link in the article doesn't work, this one should http://myrasplace.org/

    Could this be Myra??? The height and build are close, the hair colour is right and the previous braces. The anthropologist thinks the body had been there a year but in a warm climate like Texas, wouldn't decomposition be faster, especially if the body had been left in an open field?

    I don't think that one can be a match based on dental. On Namus, it says for that case that teeth 1 and 16 had not erupted - the upper wisdom teeth had not come in. The lower jaw was not recovered so no info on those. One of the front teeth was post-mortem missing so no way to verify if it was chipped or not.

    This is so sad to me. From 1983 - 1987 I attended college just up the street from here. From 1984 - 1985 I worked in the restaurant at the base of the Presidential Apartments. Until this day in 2013, I had never even heard of Myra Manley.

    The public is much more willing and able to help in disappearances. It is so sad that the word does not get out in a timely manner.

    God Bless you Myra. I hope you are found some day.

    Yesterday Philadelphia Police arrested a man connected to DNA for two murders of women in 1989. He is not cooperating with Police. I am wondering if there were more as yet unknown or not connected to him.

    Me too. What was the layout of the pool? Were there doors from the pool that led to the outside?
