    SC - Myrtle Beach, AsianFem UP10282, >50, healed broken tibia, Nov'10

    A badly decomposed body of an "older" female has been found in a grassy field Monday night, and Horry County Police are searching for clues to determine who the woman might be. According to a police report, a teen and two friends were attempting to find sticks in order to build a fort along Palmetto Pointe Boulevard. The teen said as they were walking in the grassy area, they found what they thought was a dead body.
    ....(snipped)....
    Officials with the Myrtle Beach Police Department tell WMBF News the body found is not that of missing teen Brittanee Drexel.
    Tamara Willard, Horry County Chief Deputy Coroner, said the body found is that of an unidentified older female. She also said the victim was found with clothes between a size eight and a size 10.
    The Coroner's Office believes the woman to be older because of evidence of graying hair, however, further tests will need to be done on the hair to determine if the graying hair is because of age or exposure to elements.

    I hope they are able to identify her soon! I wonder if she's someone who had been reported missing or possibly a transient.

    I wonder if it's this woman: Susan DeLuca

    Would be nice to have a description of her. She went missing about an hour out of Myrtle - well that's where her car was found anyway, so we know she didn't get out of SC.

    The area where this UID was found - the street dead ends and is at the very backside and end of a large neighborhood. Looks like lots of new and underconstruction houses in this neighborhood. It seems like an unlikely place for someone to walk to. But that's where my transient thought comes into play - could it have been someone staying in one of the houses under construction?

    Also to me, it looks like an unlikely place to dump someone with all of the other places (national parks) in Myrtle (and SC) that a body could be placed.
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails.

    I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    New information released on body found in Myrtle Beach

    Horry County Deputy Coroner Tamara Willard said the body found on Nov 15 in a wooded area near Palmetto Pointe Blvd is that of an asian woman, at least 50 years of age or older.

    Willard said they are now pursuing a DNA profile of the woman. That process will be completed by SLED.


    more here - including no foul play suspected, and body had been in area for year or less

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    I can only find two Asian females over 45 missing from East of the Mississippi River in recent years.

    Mouy Tieng Tang

    My Dung Thi Tran

    http://www.nampn.org/cases/tran_my.html

    Neither have grey hair, and due to her diabetes I doubt that Mouy Tieng Tang could have survived on her own for very long after her disappearance.

    there is another Asian woman fitting the general description, Yu Goodson, age 57 missing from Alabama on March 25, 2005. the drawback for this potential match is that they believe the body was in Myrtle Beach for less than one year.

    they finally put this UID in Namus and they are doing a great job trying to identify her. (just a little sarcasm on that last bit)

    no estimation of age, no estimated date of death, no dentals, no DNA (although it looks like they might have taken a sample because they made this note in the DNA section "need NamUs identification number to submit for testing"), the articles said she was found with hair but they did not put a color in the profile.

    Namus profile says DNA has been submitted. It looks like about all they could tell from the remains is that she's a small Asian woman. Or else they're keeping some of the information private for some reason. Even the earlier information about being over 50 isn't included.

    No ruleouts listed. Not surprising with nothing to go on.

    Also, the circumstances is "not known at this time" - they do realise the circumstances in which the body was found, right? So - in a field, etc. Also, for clothing it's "jeans, shirt" and footwear is "shoes". Jeez. What kind of jeans? What sort of shirt? What size? Brand? What size of shoe?
