    DE - Georgetown, Fem Cranium UP6275, 20-33, in city dump, Sep'64

    I saw this NamUs casefile with several photos of the unidentified victim's cranium. I took a shot at trying to depict how she might have looked in life. There are a lot of unknowns here, and this is an attempt to show facial shape and not her overall look. There was no hair or clothing found, so I gave her a hairstyle and clothing typical of the late 1950's. Of course, since the mandible was not found, you should not rely on the chin and jawline, but it appears to me from the tightly arched alignment of the upper teeth, that there was significant narrowing of her facial outline from her jaws to her mouth.

    But what I can see from the shape of the cranium, she had a roundish face with wide-set eyes that had a backward slant (i.e., downward toward the ears). The narrow nasal aperature indicates that her nose was not broad at the bottom. and from the profile, it doesn't look like her nose protuded unsually.

    I was looking at this skull in comparison to Mabel May Chambers, and thought she had a very similarly round and wide head shape. However, I tried doing an overlay of the skull to her photo, and see that the tops of her eye sockets don’t rise as high, and her upper teeth sit a little higher.

    Looks pretty close, but I was not able to get good alignment when trying to overlay the skull over her photo. The vertical spacing of her facial features are off.

    In Joan's photo, she is not facing perfectly forward. Her head is turned very slightly to her right, so I can't get a perfectly comparable overlay to check the horizontal dimensions. But that difference doesn't affect the vertical comparison.

    Mabel May Chambers I feel is a very good match.I tried to email NamUs with this match about 2 to 3 weeks ago.I never heard back from them.I was actually looking for possible matches of who the boy in the box's mother could have been and stumbled on this match by accident.

    Hal says that he has an old MP case of a woman from Georgetown that he has not yet published in NamUs, and coincidentally, the family was at his office today to provide DNA samples.

    He says that he needs to get the local PD to generate a MP report before he can publish the NamUs casefile on her.

    I see something that stands out on both Mabels right ( our left ) temple area and the same area of the skull. I can't tell if it is swelling from a bump, or a fatty tissue tumor on Mables temple and maybe a post mortem fracture on the skull. But it stands out to me -as the mom of a post helmuted child dx'd with severe plagiocephaly.

    Maybe I am seeing more into this.. so have to ask. For all I know it could be a post mortem crack...

    I'm really not sure how the overlays might work with or coincide with anyone who has a skull anomaly and partial remains.

    Here's an illustration of my overlay, showing why I doubt that this is Mabel:



    I have rotated both images to straight-up orientation, re-sized them to comparable size, and aligned the transparency of the skull so that the eyes and columella of the nose are positioned appropriately. With the photos anchored at those three points, the other key facial features don't align.

    As noted on the image, Mabel has a taller forehead, and more vertically condensed features from the orbits (i.e., eye sockets), to the teeth. A person's eyebrows should be positioned above the orbits, but they are within the orbits in this case.

    There doesn't appear to be an inordinate forward or backward tilt in either image, so there shouldn't be a problem with incomparable camera angles.

    Here's a new case that Hal Brown put into NamUs.

    Johanna Atalia Gersina De Haas


    https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/12580/0

    It isn't necessarily a Delaware case. She is thought to have come to the U.S. from Amsterdam, and it isn't clear where in the U.S. she went.

    However, she does resemble the recon that I did for this UID.
