    She's alive? Wow. There is a thread for the unidentified remains found in the brickyard in the IUD subforum.

    I know this is going to sound terrible but she didn't contact her own child for 40 years? There must be a reason.

    ETA: She reportedly had mental health issues. That is probably the reason.

    Maybe this (in the article that Kimster posted above):

    They couldn't perform DNA analysis, but police said they thought it was Hood, who suffered from mental health issues during her adult life.
