    WA - Burien, WhtFem 97UFWA, 12-18, Green River victim, Mar'84

    This Jane Doe has been unidentified for 27 years now, so I thought I'd start a thread for her. I couldn't find a listing for her on NamUs.

    - - - - -

    On March 21, 1984 the remains of this deceased female were found near a little league baseball park in the Burien area off Des Moines Memorial Drive, King County, Washington.

    The decedent was estimated to be between 12 and 18 years of age. She was between 502 and 508 tall. Her hair and eye color are unknown.

    NCMEC has this Doe listed as a white female. Rhonda is a black female. I realize that because of this its 99% likely not her. But I just wanted to put it out there since Rhonda disappeared from Burien. Stranger things have happened.


    Missing since August 1977. Age 21. 5'7". 110 lbs. Black hair. Brown eyes.

    Based on the Doe Network link, Gary Ridgeway said he killed her. He said he THOUGHT she was Caucasian, in her 20s, with brown hair. I wonder if they have forensically been able to determine her race, or if they are just going by his guess?

    Age 12-18 (closest guess around 15)
    5'3" - 5'9"
    110-130 lbs
    Died prior to May 1983
    Possibly a runaway from somewhere else in the country

    They must have checked this one -- Kelly Kay McGinness, missing from King County and thought to be a Ridgeway victim (http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/385dfwa.html)

    You would think...but I haven't been able to find any rule-outs, and she isn't on NamUs. So you never know.

    I was just about to submit this when I saw that you have already found this possible match. Did you submit?

    Has Kase Ann Lee been ruled out? She disappeared on August 28, 1982 and is thought to be a victim of Gary Ridgway as well.

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14129/3

    I hope that they are going by anthropological data (with regard to the race of the victim) and not just taking Gary's word for it; I vaguely remember reading that he had described Patricia Michelle Barczak, who was white, as being a black woman and Kelly Ware, who was a light skinned black woman, as being white and other things like that. Its really upsetting that he doesn't remember any of the victims names and not much details about them. Maybe it comes from not thinking of them as actual people; I don't know.

    No, I was still doing research on it when a family emergency came up and I just kind of left things for a while. Please do send it in.

    OK, I've been doing some more digging - I've submitted both Kelly Kay McGinness and Kase Ann Lee to be checked against both UIDs. I'm sure these must have been checked but it won't hurt to submit them and see if I can get them listed in Namus too so we can start seeing rule outs.

    This UID: https://identifyus.org/en/cases/9927 - no rule outs yet.
    Another very similar UID: http://doenetwork.org/cases/98ufwa.html not in Namus

    Plus another Gary Ridgeway victim:
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/99ufwa.html (not in Namus)
    to be checked against
    http://doenetwork.org/cases/391dfwa.html (Patricia Anne Osborn)

    Oh, very nice work! 98ufwa was another one I was looking at for a match, so it looks like we're on the same page, or in the same chapter at any rate

    I hate it when DoeNetwork identifies someone and doesn't say who it is on the page!

    Can someone tell me who http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/99ufwa.html is?

    Please and thank you!

    That recon on the left...um...the chin? That due to the age of the recon or just not a lot of detail put into it?

    The chin doesn't look realistic, but I thought that recon was a pretty good epresentation of how she looked in life. Actually, I think it was more on-target than the other more realistic-looking NCMEC image.
