    Pretty good Resemblance, especially the shape of the chin and the squared jawline. The facial recon looks very realistic, but there's no way of knowing how accurate it is. I see a few minor differences in facial structure, but that may or may not be real.

    The 2-3 inch height difference is somewhat of a stretch, but probably not too much of a stretch (Charley lists Rebecca as 5'8" to 5'9").

    But the resemblance, as well as the timeline, age, and circumstances make it pretty tempting to call it in.

    Or you might want to throw in a "by the way", if you ever get on the phone with them again regarding the 6'8" Miami Beach WhtMale drowning victim.

    I think it's worth calling in on its own -- the circumstances look pretty close.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    <i>Burns on the inside of each calf from a motorcycle exhaust pipe</i>

    That would be fresh burns, not scars? Dead people get burns pretty easy due to lack of blood flow. Is it feasible to transport a corpse by motorcycle, tying them on behind the rider in a manner that makes them look passably alive?

    In a word, no.

    It's tough enough to transport a live passenger who is not leaning into the turns along with the driver. A dead passenger, who is either completely limp or completely stiff (if in rigor mortis) would be extremely difficult to transport.

    Thanks Carl. My biggest concern is the variation in Rebecca's reported weight. I've seen it roughly as low as 130 and as high as 180. Which side of the spectrum was she when she disappeared? Who knows really...

    The hairstyle, assuming when Rebecca disappeared it was similar to the photo, and subsequent hairline caught my attention first. And you're correct about the recon, how accurate or true to life is it? I've seen the artists work before and generally find it to be pretty good by comparison.

    I did add the "oh by the way" to the VM I left for Miami regarding the other case...

    I like this possible match. Dentals are available. The ht and wt are close. The timing and location are inline. I would submit.

    Good find and welcome to WS Fin.

    I haven't heard anything from Miami regarding Rebecca Dunn and this UID.

    Fin, have you heard anything back regarding Kathleen Henson??
