I choose to walk to path less travelled, and that has made all the difference
The Jane Doe has been on the WV state police website for years. Crouch is not Jane Doe.
Don't know if it will help but I attempted to colorize this Jane Doe.
It's difficult to colorize hair that is part of the material the reconstruction is made of and not a wig but I gave it my best shot.
It is the nature of the truth to struggle to the light.
Vigil Held For Jane Doe
Snipped: http://germantown.patch.com/articles...y-in-frederickSunday marks 20 years since a worker cutting weeds along southbound Interstate 270 in Frederick County found the body of a young woman.
The woman, whose decomposed body was found down an embankment at the Baker Hill Road overpass, has never been identified and her killing remains unsolved.
The Maryland Missing Persons Network and Maryland State Police will hold a vigil to bring attention to the cold case at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday in the parking lot of the Worthington Farm on Baker Hill Road at Monocacy National Battlefield.
Here's a new NamUs MP, added last week and made public today:
Trudy Crystal-Dawn Pasko
She seems to me to be an interesting possible to this Jane Doe.
* Her height (5'1") is right (DoeNet estimate: 5'1"-5'3")
* Her age (15-16) is at the low end of the age range (16-21 per NamUs)
* The circumstances and timeline are consistent. She was a runaway from a juvenile detention facility in Florida, and was last seen about 8 months prior to the discovery of the remains.
At first blush, I would say no because Trudy is clearly missing her #7 tooth, and the facial reconstructions don't depict that. However, the dentals indicate that the Jane Doe was missing 7, 8, and 9 postmortem. It might be possible that they confused postmortem and antemortem tooth loss when looking at the dentals. She is turned to her left in the photo, so it's hard to tell whether her #10 tooth is "protruding and reversed". But in her "Physical Characteristics" section, it indicates that "one front tooth overlaps the other front tooth". Her upper-central incisors (#8 & #9) don't appear to overlap each other, so they must be talking about #9 & #10).
Another possible inconsistency is that the UID was wearing various jewelry items. I wouldn't suspect that a runaway from a detention facility would be wearing much jewelry.

It certainly is an interesting possibility but as you said I think the dentals rule her out. It's hard to tell from the photograph but it doesn't look to me as if #10 is either protruding or overlapping with #9. Furthermore I'm not familiar with a left lateral incisor being termed a "front tooth", though I'm not familiar with US dental vernacular.
The #7 issue really puts the nail in the coffin. It's hard to imagine such a glaring error being made by an ME/LE. Is there any precedent for a mistake like that?
Too bad, because it's a decent likeness....
Well that's happy news!
I-270 connects to I-70. That leads up to Pennsylvania. I-81 and I-76 connect later on. She was found on I-270 southbound. Maybe if the trucker was responsible, he picked her up somewhere north of the area. Maybe we could check to see if anyone fits her description from Pennsylvania or New York... I wish we could find out his driving route.
Wow. That's a great resemblance. The toofs are spot-on
Trouble is that she is way too tall. But I've seen enough errors on height that I wouldn't rule-out on that.
The height might not be too far off. The high end estimate was 63". Nancy Jo was 66".
However, on two MP cases (Robert Donlick and Troy Kozkowski) matched to UID's by Websleuths members, the difference between the measured height of the UID and the reported height of the MP were 4" and 3", respectively. And these weren't skeletal remains cases, they were intact bodies.
So as I said above, you can't always presume that heights are correct.

I think Nancy's eyes are very similar to the Jane Doe's eyes. I think the overall appearance is also very similar.
Another thing to keep in mind is that in many instances, these cases remain unresolved for so long because something is incorrect.
I've seen three cases in recent years that remained unresolved because of incorrect Dates of Last Contact. I've also seen a few with wildly incorrect age estimates and, as I mentioned above, incorrect heights.
So...I guess I'll give Sgt. Tina Becker a call? There was no case worker listed on NAMUS, but she was listed on the Doe Network. I'll let you know how it goes.
I called and left a message with Nancy Jo's name, NAMUS# and NECMEC#.
