    Conn. cops working to ID badly decomposed body found dumped in shallow grave near PGA golf course
    BY Philip Caulfield
    DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

    Tuesday, June 14th 2011, 4:23 PM


    Investigators in Connecticut were working to identify the decomposed body of a woman found dumped in a shallow grave near a private PGA golf course.

    A man walking his dog made the grisly discovery on Monday morning in a remote sand pit in Rocky Hill, Conn., just north of the Tournament Players Club at River Highland golf course.

    An autopsy on Tuesday determined that it was the body of a white woman, about 5-foot-5 inches tall, but the medical examiner didn't know who she is or how she died.

    Cops initially said the remains were so rotted that they couldn't tell whether it was a man, woman or child.

    Rocky Hill Police Lt. Robert Catania said the body "had been buried for some time

    Very short article. It suggest the UID had been buried in a sand pit at a golf course outside of Hartford.

    Carrie Ann Monroe was last seen in Jan 2010 less than 10 miles from the golf course.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...oe_carrie.html


    She is listed at 5'1" to 5'3" (i.e., a couple inches shorter than the 5'5" height estimate for the UID).

    Here's another article indicating the height estimate:

    It seems that if the person who found the remains mistook her hand for a glove, she couldn't have been there more than a few months. Otherwise, one would think the remains would have been fully skeletonized (and not mistaken for a glove).

    Keep in mind, though, that although the missing date may be a while ago, the person may not be deceased until recently. She could have been kidnapped, or missing because of getting into a lifestyle that took her away from family and friends (drugs, prostitution, etc). I think that factor keeps a lot of people from being identified-- the missing date seems too far off, or the place too far away...

    I say this because my cousin was a 'run-away' for many years. She was from SoCA, but actually rambled all over AZ, NV, NoCA, OR, WA... then one time she up and called my uncle-- she was in New Jersey!! We had NO clue that she had ever even considered leaving the west... but she was in with this group of "friends" who did lord-knows what. (Sadly, those "friends" were nowhere around when she was in hospice and died of AIDS But, that's why I continue to look all over the country and expanded time-frames... Sorry for the OT
    A run-away may leave on purpose, but that doesn't mean that they are able to get back home.... Never stop searching.
