    FL - Davie, WhtFem 295UFFL, 15-30, in canal, blue platform shoes, Dec'75

    Here's one that looks like a possible match.

    295UFFL - Davie, Broward County FL - White Teenaged Female

    http://doenetwork.org/cases/295uffl.html

    Phyllis Eleanor Berry

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

    Consistencies:

    • Age: UID "Teenager" --- P Berry 21

    • Height/Weight: UID 5' 5", 125 lbs --- P Berry 5' 5"; 110 lbs

    • Timeframe: UID Est. Death Date 23-Dec-75 --- P Berry Disappeared 01-Nov-75

    • Phys. Characteristics: UID and P. Berry both have Gap Between FrontTeeth, small bulbous nose, Shoulder-length hair (on UID and one of the two photos of P. Berry). It is not clear which P. Berry photo is more recent.

    • Resemblance: Good overall resemblance between UID drawing and P. Berry.


    Inconsistencies:

    Distance between location of disappearance and location where UID found is approx 1800 miles. However, Phyllis' profile indicates that she was last seen getting on the back of a motorcycle with an unidentified male after attending a chili cook-off. It is plausible that they could have gone on a cross-country road trip together, and the two-month lag time would also be consistent with that scenario. However, it seems implausible that she would have embarked on such a trip without bringing anything along with her.

    Any comments or other possible matches?

    I think that it could be a match. For both the UID and Phyllis, DNA is available, so maybe they have already been checked ...
    Anyway, I would call it in, at least, to find out if they have been checked.

    They do look similar, and the rest seems to fit.

    Slightly OT, I notice that quite a number of unidentified bodies have been found in Davie, many of them in ditches. I'm not familiar with Florida -- is there something about the area that makes it attractive as a dumping ground?

    I was a little reluctant to turn this in (1) because of the 1800 mile separation, and (2) because it looks like the UID has a CODIS profile, and I thought I saw somewhere that there was a CODIS profile on Phyllis Berry (although I checked again, and cannot find any confirmation of that).

    But I decided to go ahead and submit it to crimetips@daviepolice.com. If both profiles are in CODIS, I will let Davie Police confirm that as fact rather than assume it to be so.

    I never received a response from crimetips@daviepolice.com, so I called the Texas Dept of Public Safety. I was put through to a woman named Tara Eason.

    She indicated that Phyllis has a CODIS profile, and I indicated to her that the Doe Network Page states "DNA Available". She said that this means that they probably have put it in CODIS, but she will go ahead and check it out anyway.

    She instructed me to call her back in a couple of weeks, and she will have an answer on this.

    I called back Tara of the Texas Dept of Public Safety for a follow-up on this case. She said that she did contact Davie PD for verification that the case was input to CODIS. They replied that in fact, it was.

    And since Phyllis Berry's DNA is in CODIS, this is an exclusion by default.

    This case was just added today to Charley Project.

    Ima Jean Sanders


    She caught my attention in comparison to this case because she has a gap between her #8 and #9 teeth, just as the Jane Doe does. She would have been 14 years old in Dec 1975 (the UID is described as a "teenager"), and her height is within an inch of the UID's height.

    I wonder why this UID case is not in NamUs. Perhaps it is resolved, and they didn't tell DoeNet.

    They look very similar...... and the time frame sure fits. I cant decide whether the ring is a mass produced ring from the 70's or whether it is a one of a kind ring.

    I've seen others like it, in fact I remember seeing something like that at a neighbor's garage sale several years ago. It looks like a mass produced one, to me.

    This UID is now in NamUshttps://identifyus.org/cases/9302

    NamUs lists this UID age as being between 18-35, where the Doe Network lists her as being a teenager.

    Carl,

    Do you have a list of rule outs for this UID? The NamUs file does not have any rule outs listed.

    None except for Phyllis Eleanor Berry, who they say is a CODIS rule-out by default.

    Have they checked if this could be Amy Billig? http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/18dffl.html

    I thought about Sheryl Ann Tillinghast as another possibility. http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1500dfny.html Circumstances of her disappearance is unclear, being born in 1956 she fits in the age frame, and she appears to have a gap between her teeth. She’s slightly too small, but she could have grown a couple of inches, or her height at the time of disappearance could have been an estimate.
