CA - Nevada Co., WhtFem, 18-30, strangled, near Independence Trail, Jul'84
A WS member brought this article to my attention:
I cannot find this case either in DoeNetwork, NamUs or Websleuths. So I am starting a thread here.
Unidentified White Female
Discovered on July 8, 1984, six miles north of Nevada City along Hwy 49, just south of the Independence Trail Head. She was estimated to have died 2-3 weeks prior.
* Estimated age: 18 to 30 years old.
* Approximate Height: about 5 feet, 5 inches tall
* Weight: "Slim Build"
* Hair: Shoulder-length blond hair.
* Eye Color: Not Specified.
* Clothing/Jewelry: was wearing several layers of clothing, and a yellow gold ring with a green stone
* Other Info: Sheriff's officials said the woman was believed to have been a transient and may have come from outside the area. She may have attended a rock concert in the area a couple of weeks before her body was discovered.
The manner and cause of death was listed as homicide by strangulation.

Tammie Lynn Wilkinson is a possibility. Maybe she wanted to get to that concert, but didn't want anyone telling her not to go, so she decided to just take off hitch-hiking, and phone home when she got there?
She has a tattoo that isn't mentioned for the UID, but a couple of weeks of decomp may have taken care of that. Also, Tammie was wearing a gold and green-stone class ring as well as other rings. Even if the ring on the UID isn't a class ring, maybe it was worn to match the class ring that the killer decided to take?

Carl, what was the other case you posted in the same time frame where a woman's body was dumped on 80 west in a turn out for Grass Valley CA? Wasn't she killed by strangulation also?

Does this case have a NAMUS listing as yet?
ETA - I just searched through Nevada and California listings and didn't see her listed in NAMUS - may have missed her though.
Google Map - highway 49 - Golden Chain Hwy.
The Independence Trail cuts across the road.
I don't know where the exact location was that the UID was found - reports said South of the trail head Hwy 49.
