    IN - Hammond, Bones found buried, gold ring, Oct'11 - Francine Carlson

    ...found near 117th and Indianapolis Boulevard.

    The remains were found by a Michael Bender, who walking his dog on Wednesday afternoon. The dog dug up a finger bone with a gold ring still on it. Bender said the ring was small, and had a cross and blue stone.

    "The skull was quite small in my opinion, although I've never seen a skull before," Bender said. "A young girl with long brown hair? A small girl or small woman."

    Indianapolis Blvd. is also US41. And literally a stone's throw from the Illinois state line. So MPs from both states should be considered.

    Who might be missing in the area? A small skull with long brown hair? There is a substantial Hispanic community in that part of the city. Hmmm.........

    Lauren Spierer has been missing from Bloomington since June 3rd. She's very petite with long blonde hair, but hair color can change after death under certain conditions.

    I think it would be much to soon to be skeletonized - and from the article, there was recently a building on the site which is being demolished. And Hammond (almost Whiting) is a heckuva long way from Bloomington.

    Of the missing females on my list from Indiana, this woman from Munster IN is closest to Hammond.

    Promila Daman Mehta-Paul

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

    She might have a small skull. However, her hair is not long.

    I have four woman on my list from Gary. However, none of them fit the description of long dark hair, or the circumstances don't fit (e.g., parental abduction).

    Well, the ring is not a match to the jewelry Lauren Spierer was thought to be wearing that night.

    Yeah, Dr. Mehta-Paul was shown on bank surveillance with short hair in her last sighting. You would be MORE likely to find a missing woman from Chicago, it's much closer than Gary to the discovery. I am cross-eyed from working on my thesis tonight or I'd stay up and search IL MPs.........

    The building was reported to be empty for 10 years and it was a bait and tackle shop before that.

    The owner of the dog seems to think the skull is a child or small woman. He said blond hair first and then switched it to brown. Like he might not be really sure of the color.He said it was long. Stacy Peterson was tiny.

    Vikki Vukelich had a necklace with a cross pendant, but not a ring with a cross.

    South Holland IL is also very close to Hammond.

    Nancy O'Sullivan

    She is small and has long brown hair.

    But would her hair last that long being buried since 1974?

    Robin Abrams had a gold pinky ring (and long brown hair).


    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/a/abrams_robin.html

    Beecher IL is about 30 miles from the location where the remains were found. But her car was found in Harvey IL, about 12 miles from the location.
