(formerly Ontario Hydro).

    Sorry for quoting myself, but I was wrong in my above statement and too late to edit. I get lost on Streeview at times.

    The sign I referred to above is actually on the southwest corner of Holt and the South Service Road, whereas the victim was located on the southeast corner as per Hazel's post:

    Just thinking that narrow cowpath type of slip-road that runs in a northeasterly direction off Holt might be known as a Lovers' Lane.

    What if the ring/shirt weren't hers? What if it/they were the intended gift? Gift giver gives items that are used, outdated and too big, perhaps that had personal meaning (family ring?). Giver maybe gets laughed at, and feels embarrassed enough to turn violent?

    I wonder if the ring has ever been reported stolen. If it was February when body was dumped, was there enough snow to lose the ring and not be able find it, and that's why it got left.

    Just thinking outloud.

    What about Linda Sohus?
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/s/sohus_linda.html

    She was a statuesque woman, 6ft tall and not skinny (I note that no height is given for the Doe?) and she was last seen slightly less than a week before Valentines Day 1985.

    This link
    http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/mystery/ci_10110450
    has a story with a grainy black and white newspaper photo of her wearing some sort of ring on her right index finger.

    just to clarify

    Please keep in mind that Valentines Day was just speculation on my part, based on the red heart and red ribbon found at the site. LE hasn't mentioned anything regarding February nor Valentines Day. She could have gone missing any other month, so please consider all possibilities. Thanks!

    Canada - Clarington, Wht Fem-Darlington Nuc. Plant/Oshawa jewelry store - 2006

    Police hope face reconstruction solves Ont. cold case


    The victim was a Caucasian female between 18 and 30 years old whose body could have been in the field for two to 10 years before it was found near the Darlington nuclear power plant and Highway 401.

    <snip>

    a women's size 9.5 gold ring, a multi-coloured shirt and a watch. The custom-made garnet ring was sold at an Oshawa jewelry store in the 1980s. Police believe Consumers Distributing was the exclusive seller of the digital watch found near the remains.

    Her doenetwork page
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/90ufon.html

    On the other thread for this Doe, I expressed my opinion that she might be Linda Sohus. But now I'm not so sure, the stated timeframes seem a little too recent for it to be Linda? Previously they were considering "everything from 1979 right up to 2006" But decomposition on boggy ground can be a bit odd, I guess all the bog bodies in Europe are proof of that.

    I wish her teeth were shown more clearly in those photos.

    I do not think this missing girl has been suggested yet, this one caught my eye because she went missing on Valentine's day and had a gap in her slightly protuding teeth....
    http://s13.invisionfree.com/Porchlig...da/ar/t232.htm
    Darlene Tucker was a 16-year-old high school student when she ran away from her Oakville home on Valentine's Day in 1983 after becoming upset with rules imposed by her mother. Her disappearance turned from a routine runaway case into a mystery when the young girl did not collect thousands of dollars left in trust until her 18th birthday. The last anyone heard from her was a month after she left home, when several calls were billed from a telephone booth in the Huntsville area to her mother's phone.
    Six months after Tucker vanished another 16-year-old student, Jan Stonehouse, ran away. Because the pair were friends, investigators were convinced the disappearances were linked.
    Darlene has never been seen again.

    http://www.danforthdiamond.com/guess-a-ring-size
    "But just WHAT is the average size ring for a woman you ask? According to statistics, the average American woman is 5'4" tall and weighs 140 pounds. Using this statistic, you may be able to make a good guess on your girlfriend's finger size. Does she have a small, average or large frame? How much does she weigh? (Don't ask her weight if you don't know it...this could be dangerous if asked at the wrong time!). But do take notice of her frame, her weight and her hands. Also notice if she has large knuckles as well. Her fingers may be slender, but if her knuckles are large, she may need a larger diamond engagement ring to fit over the knuckle.

    More than likely, if she is small-framed with slender fingers and weighs under 120 pounds, her finger size could range from a 4 to a 5. If she is larger-framed with thicker fingers and weighs over 150, a good guess may be in the 7-9 range"


    I am still wondering about the large size of the ring..

    That's why I keep thinking Linda Sohus. We know she was a big boned and well fleshed woman and there is a grainy and indistinct photo of her wearing a ring on her right index finger... which on a right handed person is going to be the largest or second largest finger Maybe two to three sizes larger than the left ring finger? The ring I wear on my left ring finger won't even pass the knuckle of my right index finger.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/s/sohus_linda.html

    the photo of her with a rings is at

    http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/mystery/ci_10110450

    My opinion only, but I think the strength of the smell from the guesthouse in the Sohus case indicates quite strongly that a body (or two bodies) was left in the guesthouse and Chichester was absent in the couple of weeks immediately after the death and unable to do anything to reduce the stink. What is probably Jonathon's body has been found reasonably close to the guesthouse so the balance of probability would be that Jonathon's body was in that guesthouse. Linda's body has not been found so the balance of probability would be that she was disposed of elsewhere, during the period of time in which Johnathon's body decomposed. Nobody who has any choice drives a decomposing body around in their car for long, and Chichester would have to have been absent long enough for the body in the guesthouse to really stink, so the balance of probability is that Linda was alive and left with him, and stayed alive for at least a few days. Their friends seem to think Chichester was infatuated with Linda, and we know that he has a pattern of self important grandiosity and kidnapping.

    I have no problem with the Sohus's being from California while the ring is from Canada. Young science fiction fans who have money for travel will drive or fly all over to get to science fiction conventions, and often buy things during their travels. This was the case in the eighties too, I have many friends who happily drove from Adelaide to Melbourne or Sydney several times a year for fan conventions. Likewise I've got no issue with the Doe being in Canada. Whatever reason Chichester may have given to get Linda out the house may have been intended to take her as far away from there as possible, in hopes that any problems could be dealt with during their journey home.

    I really would like to find people who knew Linda Sohus in the three or four years prior to her disappearance to look at a picture of that ring and tell me whether it looks like any ring they'd seen her wear. Particularly I would be interested in her female friends getting the chance to ID the ring.

    RSBM...

    You might be on to something... have you submitted it to the OPP? They seem pretty open to all submissions.

    If it is Linda, I'm not sure how she would have ended up here... but stranger things have happened.
