    Interesting how they feel she may have been asphyxiated - with skeletal remains. Was there a plastic bag over the head? Cord around neck?

    Broken hyoid bone perhaps.

    Nothing that by itself would exclude, but I would say she's unlikely.

    one thing about the ring, Patricia was an antique collector - "Ford regularly bought and sold antiques at the Oldsmar flea market." - per the circumstances. it is possible, but I can't place odds on it, that she bought a nice looking ring at an estate sale or something to give her the appearance of being married.

    Police theorize - Ford was last seen removing $5,000 from her bank in Tampa. She was going to buy antique figurines from a woman who was about to move into a nursing home. Police never found the seller, and suspect Patricia may have been victim of a scheme to rob or abduct her.

    so robbery and strangulation are certainly in the realm of reason here.

    I also had a thought about the YEM ring - my married daughter has her husband's initials in her ring, and he has her initials in his. But the antique aspect also makes perfect sense.

    I think Patricia was on her way to buy antiques and was intercepted on what appears to be a one way street half a mile from her home. Probably pulled over and convinced to get into someones car to complete the journey.

    if someone planned enough to bilk a senior citizen out of $5,000 by posing as an antiques seller it would not be a stretch that they planned to kill her and dump her body far from home. although it would have been easier to dump a body in any swamp in central Florida, it is not outside the realm of possibility.

    The clothing may indicate she had not been there as long as to make this a likely match
    I too looked everywhere for someone with the initials YEM
    Nothing.

    let's analyze the initials. if it is a woman's name we are probably talking about an Yvonne or Yvette. there are Spanish names that start with Y and being South Florida the UID could be Cuban who are mostly white. but the types of Spanish names beginning with Y that I am thinking about I don't associate with the elderly like Yesenia, Yasmine, Yomira, Yolanda, etc.

    here is a list I found on the internet:

    http://www.20000-names.com/female_y_names.htm

    I can't think of many mens names that start with Y. Yves is one of the few that came to mind but here is a list:

    http://www.thinkbabynames.com/list/1/Y

    there are some Russian sounding names in the bunch of both lists.

    It could stand for something. A phrase they considered special or something. Yours Ever More. Or whatever.

    I had an idea on how to find possibly missing persons in FL but I quickly found out it is not as easily done as I thought it might have been.

    each state maintains a database of unclaimed funds so any missing person probably had at least a bank account or some uncashed checks payable to him or her especially if he or she was single, divorced or widowed.

    the problem with Florida's database is that a last name is required. using Miller as a last name I was able to find an Yvonne E. Miller. However, there is no date for the unclaimed funds nor is there any great probability that that Yvonne E. Miller is deceased. probably most unclaimed accounts are from living persons who moved, etc.

    that was just one last name. there are many common surnames that begin with M such as Murray, Murphy, Mc____, etc.

    Having grown up in Broward county I can consider it old stomping grounds. Alligator Ally is also St. Rd 84 and comes out of Ft. Lauderdale and runs up to Tampa. It's one of the only routes connecting the east coast to west coast of Fla in the southern half.

    Wow the 60 mile marker means she had to be on the western edge of Broward county. Yes it's swamp land with a very few stopping points in between. Her body was closer to the east coast, possibly Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood, Davie, Miami maybe etc... a few more cities in that mix.

    Yes Tampa is possible but it's quite a stretch to haul a body. It's quite a distance even for the east coast, she didn't walk there. Lot's of area to cover.

    Good Luck everyone...
