    TX - Brazoria Co., BlkFem, mid-20s, camo pants, gold hoop earrings, Jan'11

    Just came across this case online and could not see anything on NAMUS or Doe Network, or indeed on Websleuths. I thought I would start a thread here in the hope that some of the more experienced sleuthers here might find a link. If there is a thread here for this girl that I might have missed (or a NAMUS and DOE link), please merge or add to the thread.

    It's been more than a year since the foggy morning when authorities found a young woman's burning body near Texas 288 in Brazoria County.

    Despite intense follow-up and the release of a sketch by Houston Police Department forensic artist Lois Gibson, investigators say they're no closer to learning who the woman was.

    "We just can't get her identified," said Investigator Chris DuBois, of the Brazoria County Sheriff's Office.

    Sheriff's deputies discovered the body of the woman, believed to be in her mid-20s, about 9:30 a.m. Jan. 31, 2011. Passersby had reported a small fire on County Road 60 about 150 to 200 yards east of Texas 288, DuBois said.

    "When the patrolmen pulled up, they discovered it was a body that was burning," he said.....

    Well....I was looking saw this girl and passed her based on circumstances, but I just had to come back to her.

    http://www.blackandmissinginc.com/cd...singInfoID=693

    Her age is a little over the estimate 33, but I have seen so many age estimates wrong.
    I can't account for the time between found and last seen however, almost 5 months.

    IDK, looking for opinions.

    Has anyone heard anything else on this case? I remember reading about this when they found her and I just haven't seen or heard any other news since.

    Can't find much either. I know she's not listed in NAMUS. Maybe we can contact someone to get her added? That's the first step.
    The investigator in 2011, Chris Dubois, is no longer with the BCSO, so I'm searching for who we should contact about this.

    That is strange ralynn. It took me 2nd to realize what I was looking at. The MP, Arnika Miller, went missing in 2010. BUT, there she is in 2013 posting on fb. She does resemble the UID in this thread, the sketch of the UID and Arnika's MP profile pic are so similar. O wonder if she is no longer missing? Never reported as found safe? I know ppl can create fake profiles but that looks like an older version of the MP in 2013 fb profile, using the same name?? Did I understand your questioning her fb profile correctly?
