    I found these two UID cases when looking for matches to Brittany Tenisha Robinson . Her NamUs casefile was just created recently.


    Her age (14 at DLC), ethnicity (Black), LKA (Charleston, SC), are consistent with these unidentified remains.

    However, the timeframe (10 months) might be somewhat short, as the postmortem interval is estimated as "years", and the bones were described as "very dry".

    Shin splints... maybe the UID was a runner.
